There are a lot of different ways to look at your tasks. For example, sometimes you only want to see the tasks you have to work on at night.

When you want to look at your tasks in a new way, it’s time to try using labels.

Let's say you wanted to keep track of nighttime tasks:

  1. Create a label called @night from the Labels tab in your navigation pane.
  2. For every task that you have to do at night, add the label @night.
  3. Now you can view every task with the @night label in your Labels tab.


There are hundreds of ways to use labels. Here are a few examples to inspire you:
