Context tags can be used for various purposes. They are typically based on a physical location, resource, or the equipment that’s necessary to complete a task.

The context defines how and where the item will be completed. How defines the tools, such as @laptop and where defines the location, such as @home. Examples of Contexts are @office, @home, @grocery store, @computer, @train, @vacation, or @phone. Also, items are allowed more than one Context. For example, you could assign a Context of @office and @phone for phone calls that are completed at the office. In your LightArrow app, contexts are completely configurable to meet your needs and items can include zero or more contexts.

Context tags view is one of the main dashboard views in our app.

Context tags are another powerful way to organize all your items in the LightArrow app.

The above context tags view gives you the ability to view items by individual context tags or view items by multiple context tags or add new context tags.

Context Tag Color Override Functionality:

We allow for overriding the item colors with the context color (instead of topic color). That’ll give the cells in the agenda and calendar views the context tag color versus the default colors for the data/item or topic as shown below:

The Context tag icon color override behavior can be configured in Settings > Preferences as shown below:

Notice that the items with context tags have different color icons than before the setting change.

Context tags can also be changed from list views or other views that show items in rows using the expanded cell buttons as shown below:
