Tags are user-defined labels with which you can categorize and color events in BusyCal. You can also search and filter events in your calendar based on tags.
Note: Tags in BusyCal map to Categories in Exchange/Outlook.
To apply tags to events, type them in the Tags field. When adding tags to an event, the tags are auto-completed as you type, based on tags you have entered previously.
Note: To see the Tags field on the Info Panel, you must enable it in Info Panel Preferences.
You can also apply tags to an event by Control-clicking an event and choosing a tag from the contextual menu.
BusyCal automatically remembers tags as you create them and adds them to the Tag History. Choose Edit > Edit Tags to open the Tag History dialog, where you can add, delete, rename, and colorize tags.
Note: Deleting or renaming a tag in the Tag History dialog does not affect any events that already have that tag applied. However, changing the color of a tag does affect all events with that tag.
You can use tags to color events. For example, you can have an “Important” tag that is colored red, and a “Family” tag that is colored green.
Normally, events appear in the same color as the calendar they’re stored on. But you can override the event color by adding a colored tag to an event. If you add multiple colored tags to an event, the color of the first tag, sorted alphabetically, is applied.
Due to technical limitations, your Tag List will not sync between devices (i.e. from one instance of BusyCal to another). However, tags that you assign to an event will in fact sync along with that event. These tags will be visible and editable on another device running BusyCal.
Tag Colors however are assigned and stored locally, and so will not sync across devices.
