With the new Automatic Pro trip tagging, specifically business tagging, was removed. Please consider putting this feature back in.

Thanks for the Idea post, Adam. I'll point others here who are eager to have this feature developed for Pro.

I upgraded from the original Automatic to the Pro and was very sad to see the app went backwards in functionality. Not only is trip tagging not available on the Pro, naming of end points is also missing. None of these feature retractions is mentioned in the Pro online descriptions. I am likely going to have to go back the original Automatic device, as I need these features, and move the Pro to another car. Please escalate fixing this discrepancy. Your customers have a legitimate expectation that features are going to persist between releases, especially when you never say otherwise!

@Packet Guy: I had also set up an idea asking for end point naming to be added back into the Pro. Please vote it up so maybe we'll get it back.

+1 I relied on this feature for tracking my business travel, and now it is gone.   I will have to go back to the stone ages or switch back to my Automatic 2nd Gen until it gets fixed.   :-(

Hi all. Please note that if you decide you want to revert back to Gen 2 for now, we'll need to help you with that.  There's a technical limitation around this with the Pro adapter right now.

I'm more hopeful now that you'll get the engineers to put trip tagging back in soon. I'd much rather move forward than backward. Switching back seems a bit painful at this point.

Hello all, please see Ljuba's post: Trip Tagging is in the works. I couldn't tell you that until the product team was confident that the work had been tasked to the appropriate resources.

You're welcome. It's helpful to get a positively-focused consensus on what people care most about. :)

I'd like to be able to have the default be a Business tag as 95% of my trips are business. It also looks like trip naming, and end point naming are still missing.

This is a separate request.

Please reference the new conversation here: Add option to default to tagging as "Business" in the Pro app

Hi Robert. I've forked your reply into a new topic so it can be tracked as its own thing. You can vote / chime in on the request for bringing custom location names back here: https://community.automatic.com/automatic/topics/add-ability-to-name-locations-to-the-automatic-pro

So, I can see how you can tag the latest trip in the iOS app as "business". But what about the other trips I took today?

Hi Jan. On any trip details screen, tap the briefcase icon to tag it as "business". From the trip list view, swipe-left on any individual trip.

Thanks Amy. I got the briefcase part, but for some reason I was not able to see all my trips the other day. That's no longer the case.
