Hi @debryc, thanks for using GoodTask.
I think you may want to check tags in GoodTask generally.
You can utilize Quick Actions and Smart Lists to manage tags.
Quick Actions : You can use 'Tag' or 'Switch' Quick Actions to add/remove/switch between tags.
Smart Lists : You can filter 'Text' to see the tasks with certain tags only.
You can also have tags as option on 'Sort Options'. This will sort the tasks with tags that you select.
You can refer to below video for more details about tags.
Automation is a process that runs daily (or by other recurring options) to minimize the effort of doing things you may do manually. You may check below post.
