Introducing Tags

July 6, 2013 by James Tauber

Habitualist now lets you add tags to your actions and then filter your dashboard by tag. One great use for this is filtering your actions by context. Just want to see your work actions? Or just the actions to do at the gym? Just add a tag and filter as appropriate.

Over time we plan other new features tied to tags such as calculating an aggregate HabitScore per tag (so you can see how you're going in different categories of habits) as well as using tags as the basis for sharing progress with friends and family. But for now, the main benefit is being able to filter the actions on your dashboard.

Tags are private to you, so feel free to create whatever tags you like. Just click on an action and you'll see an input where you can start typing in the tags you want to assign to that action.

Previously used tags will auto-complete so you can easily select them or type the name of a new tag. You can remove a tag from an action by clicking on the ╳.

Back on the dashboard, you'll note a redesigned filter bar includes a new drop-down to filter your actions by tag. Just select the tag you want to see. To clear the filter just click ╳.

There's a lot more we have planned with tags, but I know many of you have been keen to be able to filter by context. That's something tags are great for right now.

Habitualist is a great way of tracking the things you want to do on a regular basis, the things you want to turn into habits.
