In TRO, action contexts do not usually start with a special character. This makes them stand out as a group at the bottom of your master contexts list. Use short names.

Action contexts can be tracked in:

  • A category, context, or tag field that lets you select many values at once for the same task, or
  • A separate context, tag, folder, or list field that only accepts one value at a time. This field must be separate from any fields used for major contexts, meeting contexts, or action contexts.

Make sure your context views work for all active tasks regardless of other ways you may classify your tasks. For example, if you create Calls and Errands folders, but this prevents you from seeing Calls and Errands in your (Personal) view, then you cannot use the folders feature.
