The first option is no good. You don't want every visit to (search, email....) result in Mail autotag.

Lets take a look at another example, lets say you want to autotag Skype as 'Communication'. You can do this by clicking on Applications timeline to select it. Then in the bottom right, you need to right click on Skype and choose Add to autotag.

Add to autotag window is helpful when adding rules, but sometimes you need to add your own more complex rules. Let's say that you want to autotag all activities where you've used Firefox and there is a word 'manictime' in title. Click on Applications timeline to select it, then in the filter at the bottom write:
'group:firefox manictime'
Then click on the down arrow on the right side and choose Add to autotag to add current filter to autotag.
