Are you drowning in a sea of tasks and only want certain ones to show up for certain projects? Then you definitely need to use tag lists!

How do I apply tag lists to a project?

Apply a tag list to projects by selecting the tag dropdown menu under "Tags" on the "Edit Project" page:

Decide which tag should be used on a project

When you create or edit a project, you can assign or remove any tag lists or tags from the project. Click "Add existing tag list" to view the tag lists you've created by going to Settings > Tags or "Create new list" to add a new tag list on the fly:

Note: If you create a new tag list while within a project, you will need to recreate that tag list in your global tag management system before it can be used with other projects.

Once you have selected a tag list, determine if you'd like all tags under that tag list to be available by using the check boxes. If you accidentally add a tag you'd like just use the "X" on the right-hand-side of the tag to remove it from being an option:

The assigned tags will only show up when you create an entry for that specific project:

Require tags for certain projects

You can also require certain tag lists to be used when logging time by selecting "Add existing tags" and making sure the "Required" slider is switched on:

When tags are required on a project, you will not be able to save your entry until you have applied the required tags for that entry.

Now anyone on that project will only be able to see and use the tags you've specified! Way to go. 👏

What happens if I assign new tags to a project that already has existing tags?

Tags will only apply going forward. Tags will not automatically apply retroactively to all previous entires.
