Tags Intro

Tags are a great way to keep a long task list organized.

Tags allow Habitica's players to keep their tasks organized. Many players use Habitica to help with tasks in a variety of different areas, from creating a healthy lifestyle to managing large work projects. Tags allow players to filter their tasks based on a category, cutting down on clutter as they strive to reach their goals.

Using TagsEdit

Tag filter button

Click the "Filter" button to access the tags menu.

This section explains how to filter your tasks using tags to focus on only a select group of tasks at once. To access, use and edit your tags, click the "Filter" button at the top of your Tasks page.

Selecting TagsEdit

If you click on a tag, only the Habits, Dailies, To-Dos, and Rewards that have been categorized using this tag will be displayed. The rest will be hidden from view. For example, let's say you want to see what you need to do this morning. You click on the "morning" tag...

Tag-selected

...and Habitica will only display items categorized under the "morning" tag.

Multiple TagsEdit

Tag icon

Hovering your mouse over an item's tag icon shows what tags are assigned to that item.

You can select multiple tags at once, to show only those items that are assigned to all the selected tags. In other words, tags use the AND logic between them.

Clearing TagsEdit

To see all your items again, click on "Clear all filters" to deselect all tags. If you're missing items, do this before anything else; the most common cause of missing items is that a tag filter is hiding them.

Editing TagsEdit

In the "Filter" menu, click "Edit Tags". From here, you can create new tags, delete tags, and edit the names of your existing tags.

Creating TagsEdit

Edit add delete tags
To create a new tag, click on the text box that reads "+ New Tag", enter your desired tag title, and hit enter.

Deleting TagsEdit

To delete a tag, hover over the tag name, and click on the garbage can icon for the tag you want to erase. That tag will be deleted and removed from all associated tasks (this will not delete your tasks).

Changing TagsEdit

To change the name of an existing tag, click in the text box of the tag name you want to edit and enter the change.

Formatting TagsEdit

Tag names with markdown
Markdown can be used in tag names. This is useful if you use some tags more than others and need them to be more visible. For example, using "#", which is markdown for "Header 1" formatting, at the start of the tag name will increase the text size, and using backticks "`" at the start and end of the tag name will put the tag name in "code" formatting. Emoji and other small images can be used instead of, or as well as, plain text.

Saving TagsEdit

After editing, adding, or deleting tags, remember to click Save Edits!

Assigning Tags to TasksEdit

Habitica offers you two methods for assigning a tag to a given task:

  • Add a new task while the list is filtered. If you select the appropriate tag(s) while creating a Habit, Daily, To-Do, or Reward, Habitica automatically assigns those tag(s) to your new task. 
  • Edit an existing Habit, Daily, To-Do, or Reward.
    Tags in task editing menu

    Click on the arrow to expand.

    1. Click on the task's title area to start editing.
    2. Scroll down until you see the tag field and click to open.
    3. Click on the checkbox next to the appropriate tag(s). (The tag must already have been created.)
    4. When you assign the first tag, a tag icon appears next to the task name.
    5. To unassign a tag, uncheck the checkbox next to the appropriate tag.

Challenge TagsEdit

When you accept a challenge, the Habits, Dailies, To-Dos, and Rewards of that challenge are added to your lists, and a challenge-specific tag is added to your existing tags. Challenge tags are in their own section of the Filter menu.

Challenge tasks cannot be deleted individually. To clear these tasks, you will need to leave the entire challenge. Deleting a challenge tag, however, does not remove you from the challenge.

When a challenge ends, or when you quit the challenge, its tasks and challenge-specific tag will stay. Removing the tasks either manually or automatically does not delete the tag and vice versa.

Tags can be reordered by dragging and dropping them using the left mouse button. If you have multiple rows of tags and want to move a tag from one row to the other in a specific spot, drag it to and hold it in the intended place. You may have to move it slightly from left to right and wait for the intended spot to open. Once it does, drop the tag and it should stay in place.

Ideas for Tags to UseEdit

Sample Tags suggests various strategies for using tags to make sorting and filtering your tasks easier and more productive.
