Roadmap » Tags

44 points | Current stage: Idea | Type: Feature

While categories offer an extremely high level of grouping for goals (e.g. work, health, family), tags would be a much more granular way to class individual steps.

A potential use case of this would be like "contexts" in the GTD methodology. Tags could be set up for "Office", "Home", "Errands", etc, for tasks that can only be completed in a certain place or as part of a certain routine. It will then be easy to filter down to a tag and see all matching steps across all goals.

    Much needed. It's really the only way I can see to have more than one way to view a task without duplicating it.

    The ability to tag and filter by tags would be very value adding! I really miss this at the moment. Would be highly appreciated.

    I agree, this would be so helpful in order to group that that needs to be done at home, at work, etc.

    Totally agree, this will add a lot of value.

    I definitely agree. Needs a way to group tasks other than the high-level categories.

    I'd love if there was an option to tag tasks and filter the to-do list. I love the app and I think that some sort of tag system is the only thing that's missing.

    could use Categories like Tags, or just add an arbitrary text filter function to the Todo List (with savable searches for frequent choices) and let the user decide what a tag is.

    I understand the Categories were designed for graphing how you distribute your activity, and allowing multiple categories per task would mess this up.

    Tags would be very nice!

    Agreed, contexts would be helpful. The ability to look at @phone, for example, when I can't do much else but make phone calls (i.e. on the road with a speakerphone or earpiece) would be helpful.

    Alternatively, allow Categories to apply to sub-items and steps, and allow multiple Categories per item.

    Agreed. And then, to be able to use tags to selectively view or conceal groups of tasks. Thats the magic of apps like Omnifocus. Sometimes you don't want to see all your next steps since they can be overwhelming. You might only want to see ones that have a certain tag or context.

    Tags, labels, contexts... call them what you will. It would be helpful to have a way to tag tasks as we choose. (For example: One way I'd use tags is to designate contexts - @Errands, @Yard)
