Hi - thanks JBenson2 for the comprehensive reply. There is method in my madness - really! In fact, I have changed from Q1 etc to Months. I also found that the '+' at the beginning of a tag name produced the right result but seemed to duplicate the tag name. I have therefore use 't-' at the beginning of all time-based tags and this works perfectly. It is a GTD style approach but I don't like the concept of "Someday", "Next Week" because in my experience these are just buckets in which stuff gets left. Plus, what is 'Next Week' changes as time progresses. Therefore there is a tag for each day of the week and (as with 43 folders approach) this is a rolling week. Today is Tues so all tasks tagged Tuesday are for today. Tomorrow, tasks tagged Tuesday are for 6 days hence. In this way I can plan my week on a rolling basis. To find all the tasks for today, I just filter on the Tues tag. As tasks are added they can be tagged as appropriate - either for a day in the coming week or one of the months. I Know finance work with Week numbers, but I don't - plus, as you said, a tag for each week is a lot of tags - months is a compromise. At the beginning of each week (Monday for me), I would review any with this month's tags. This short range review helps me to keep in mind the big picture. Any tasks that can be completed in the coming week are then tagged with the specific day. Any tasks that don't get done on a day are retagged - mouse click and a drag; very quick. This may seem like a lot of tagging but as you point out, it is very easy to bulk tag. Once a task is complete it is moved out of the Actions stack (notebook for each focus area) into a Completed Notebook - so these tasks are archived but don't show up in queries of live actions. There are also tags groups for Who, Where and Importance. Plus, if I have a lot of tasks to complete in a day I can add an additional Priority tag - 1-4. Again, easy to bulk tag. Then untag at end of the day. I will share the full system here once I have finished it - any other suggestions welcomed.
