I've been an avid user of the Android app for 6 months or more. I have a
question and perhaps I'm just not using it right, so I'll ask the
braintrust. I usually use the Action screen, with a tag filter to filter by
current context. So when I make a new action, it defaults to my tag
(context). That's great, but when I want to set a project for my new task,
it only shows the projects that match the filter. So, in order to make my
project show up in the dropdown when I'm adding a new action in context
"Office", my project also has to have tag (context) "Office". That strikes
me as odd and not GTD-ish. Projects don't have contexts. They are just a
big old list of projects.
Similarly, when I switch to the wait screen, I only see Waits that match
the filter, so again, my Waits have to have a context, which is a bit
inconvenient, and it's easy to lose a wait because it didn't have the right
tag to show up.
It seems to me that only Actions should have tags, or perhaps only the
Action screen should use the tag filter?
Am I missing something?
