Is there any way to colour-code goals according to their tags?

    Hello Rónán

    Thanks for your inquiry.

    You can use colour-coding, goal marking (RAG 'traffic lights') or Tags – or any combination of these features to link goals in different areas of the goal map and add extra 'dimensions' to the way you 'slice and dice' your goal data. See the attached screenshot of an example of this use in a software development project: the Tag characters shown are appended at the beginning of the Tag terms to differentiate them from instances of the same word in goal names, notes text or Comments.

    You can also find 'RAG' marked goals by entering the text 'red', 'amber' or 'green' in the search field (the goal markings will appear in a separate section of the results list).

    Right now we do not have any plans to link the tagging, colouring and marking functions, since most users like to keep these as separate ways to identify goals according to different criteria. For instance, you can use the highlight sidebar to find all the goals that have a particular tag (or any combination of tags, responsibility, dates, etc), then you can use colour-coding to refer to some other attribute and still use RAG goal marking to indicate urgency (say).

    If I have misunderstood what you are asking here, please post again to clarify.

    Enjoy the journey!
