Today we’re launching a scalable tags system that can be used for a whole slew of different use-cases.
Several of our most-requested features are activities, sub-projects, tags, categories and different versions of those features. Now we’ve solved them all with one system, and we think you’re going to love it. Here’s how it works:
There are two types of tags:
They look like this when you’re logging hours:
One of the first hings you'll notice is the use of emojis 😍🎉💪🏼. Every tag can have its own custom emoji, which makes separating them seriously easy.
One of the things that make sub-level tags great is that you can only choose one. For example, if you choose coding, you can’t also choose design for example. Instead, if you want to be able to choose both coding and design, make each of them a main tag. Here are two examples of how you could organize sub-level tags:
With the new tags system, you can now filter data in reports based on tags. It looks like this:
We think this is a scalable solution that should work for a ton of different use-cases and we’re excited to see how you use it 🤓! You’ll find the manage tags page under Settings.
A couple of notes:
Thanks for using Timely and please do share with us how you’re implementing this! 😍

New year, new releases! We’ve started 2021 by bringing greater flexibility to Tags. You can now customize tag settings across all of your projects, ensuring people log project work using the right tags with minimal tag management and admin. Check out all of your January updates!
We’ve still got a few Timely goodies to squeeze into the end of the year — and they’re big’uns! In addition to static reports, you can now share live reports with clients so they always see the latest data. We’ve also created the ability to archive tags and capture idle time on Mac. See what’s new!
