Some of you already have tags defined in some other system. These can be issues on FreshBooks or Jira, or maybe todo list from any number of apps.
Currently you can add pre-existing tags from these sources:
- Import issues from Jira and present them as tags
- Import tasks from FreshBooks and present them as tags
- Import issues from GitHub and present them as tags
- Get them from local file
- You can enter them manually
Plugin system is public so you can make a plugin for any service you want. If you'd like to write your own, you can find a sample plugin on GitHub.
To add tags from other sources, open Tag editor -> Tag sources.
Local file and manual entry
Manual entry and local file work in the same way, so you can use the same syntax for both.
Put each tag group on its own line, tags are separated by comma.
Client 1, Project X, Activity 1 Client 2, Project Y, Activity 2
You can use partial tags for easier tag generation. Lets say each project has subtags Design, Programming, Testing. You can use:
Project X, Project Y, ,Design ,Programming ,Testing
This will create the following tags:
Project X, Design Project X, Programming Project X, Testing Project Y, Design Project Y, Programming Project Y, Testing
