Label and filter your tasks and threads in GetBusy with useful tags to help you organise, prioritise and group your items and workload as you wish.
These tags are private in that they are only visible to you, and are not visible to other participants or connections.
Using tags, you could categorise your tasks based on type, topic, function, action, priority, time they take, month/year, location, or many other ways, even emotion! 😃
Simply apply a tag when creating your thread from scratch using the 'Relates to' feature and select 'Tags (private)'.
You can apply and remove tags for existing threads by opening a thread for editing, changing as you wish and then re-saving.
When applying a tag, you can select a tag from an existing/suggested list that will automatically appear, or you can create new tags by just typing in your desired tag name then either hitting Return/Enter to save or by clicking 'Create |tagname|' that will appear in the suggested list.
N.B. Tag names can only include upper and lowercase letters, and cannot include spaces, symbols or special characters. Similarly to when using Twitter hashtags.
Once you have tagged your threads, you can view your groups of tagged threads either at the top of the 'Assigned to me' area and also via the 'Focus' area under the 'Private tags' section.
Tagged threads viewed within the 'Assigned to me' area will only include threads that are currently assigned to you.
Tagged threads viewed within the 'Focus' area include all threads with the tag that you are participating in, no matter who they are assigned to.
Alternatively, you can create your private tags first, and then add tasks to those categories. To do this, go to the 'Focus' area > click the + New button, and select to create a new 'Private tag'.
Once you've created your new tag to your tag list in Focus, click on the specific tag to view, and then add a task using the icon, and it will automatically have added this tag to your task.
Be creative in how you organise your tasks to help you really focus or find what you need! 🤔
