Tags Are Disappointing and Inflexible for Me

    Thank you for pointing out to me, Jian, that something that I'm aiming for could be, in a first step, accomplished by using two (or more) Yes/No dropdown tags for every activity.

    So that first step works, but then, those tags/categories are not reflected in the categories/tags piechart for the day, so that using the tags is actually meaningless for me.

    The desired functionality is, by looking at the categories/tags piechart, to see how much of the day's activities were "Work", "Fun", and combined "Work & Fun". If "Work" is black in the piechart, and "Fun" is green, then those activities which were "Work & Fun" might appear (for example) as a combined black-and-green section (tiny black and green squares?) of the piechart, indicating that this was an activity/these were activities that contained elements of both "Work" and "Fun" on that day.

    Thank you if you can make this possible in future.

    Totally agree with Alex.  The dropdown feature helps a bit, but then I must edit and add that drop down to EVERY task before actually using the tag on the current instance of a task.  You give the example of customer.. but if I have 50 customers I have to scroll thru a long list to select the correct one.

    I think adding a text field for tags to every task instance (similar to evernote) would be much more functional.  simply typing a tag name would add it to that instance.  Existing tags auto populate as the user types and can be attached using tab/enter.

    Are there any plans to increase functionality of tags within the next year or two?
