Updating task description via API

Hi all,

Is it possible to update the task description via the API?

Basically, I just need to keep the description as it is, but add a URL onto the end.

I have searched through the documentation and forums, but haven’t been able to find anything.


@Sam_Weedon, Perhaps you couldn’t find it because internally Description is called notes or html_notes:

Yes, you can certainly do this with the API as documented throughout that page and with the other general pages on using the API.

Hope that helps,


Ah, that makes sense! Thanks a bunch @lpb!

@Sam_Weedon If you want to keep what’s there and just append to it, you’ll probably want to use html_notes, not notes, so that you don’t lose any text formatting that users may have done.

Ah, yes, good point, thanks, @Phil_Seeman
