Implementing GTD with Custom Priorities?

It seems like the priority feature is the best way of implementing GTD-like functionality within the Todoist app. It would be nice if we could add more priorities and customize the names. For example: Next Actions, On Hold, Waiting for, etc. (+1)

Hello Matt,

That's already possible :-) ... if instead of priorities, you'll use labels. If you enter @next, @on_hold, @waiting or any other word after an @ within the task's name - it will become a label. You can color-code labels, search for them, include and exclude them in advanced queries and view all tasks with a certain label.

Best regards,
