Describes the types of tags available in Everdo.

Every item in Everdo can be assigned a set of tags. There are three basic types of tags, each serving a different purpose.

  • Label The most general type. Labels can be used to filter items in the current view.
  • Area Similar to labels, but can also be used as a global (application-level) filter.
  • Contact Can be assigned to actions in Waiting status to signify the person.

Creating and Editing Tags

Tag creation is available from within the item editor view. The exact UI differs between platforms. To edit tags, use the Tag Manager window T in the desktop app, or Menu -> Manage Tags in the mobile apps.

Using Labels

Use labels to tag your actions and projects in a way that makes it easier for you to find relevant work later on. Some examples of using labels are

  • priority labels, such as p1 p2 p3
  • work category labels: writing coding chores call
  • contextual labels @store @computer @review

Using Areas

Areas are a great way to separate your different commitments, keeping your GTD lists manageable. Some common candidates for areas include

  • Work
  • Home
  • Personal

Once you select an area filter at the top of Everdo window, you will only see the items that belong to that area.

Context Tags

Any tag that starts with “@” is considered a context tag. It will appear in the Contexts section of the navigation section. Using such tags makes it more convenient to view the associated actions and lets you drag-and-drop items into the context.
