managing tags and categories

Tags and categories are the main tool for organizing your time records. You can think of Categories as Projects, and Tags as tasks. For example, a Category might be "Work", and the Tags underneath it would be "Emailing", "Coding", and "Meetings". Another Category might be a Client's name, and the Tags might be the various projects you're working on with them. It's up to you!
