Suggestion for labels


It would be very helpful if there were an easier way to assign labels to multiple tasks at once. For example if a project could be assigned a label then all tasks in that project would have that label. Or perhaps from "Manage Labels" you could display all tasks from all projects and include a checkbox next to each one to apply the label selectively.

I have searched help and experimented but this does not seem to be possible.

The way I use TD, I have several projects and sub-projects which mostly fall into either "Work" or "Home" category. I use labels to separate them so on the weekend I can just look at my home tasks, and on weekdays I can limit the view to work issues.

I'm sure there are other scenarios where this would be useful.

I agree with JM B. It is very cumbersome to have to re-type the label (even copy-paste is a pain) for multiple tasks.

It would seem that a label assignment could be made from the drop-down menu (which has priorities, dates, etc.). The current implementation is not practical for true daily GTD usage.
