Tripping tagging - additional labels

It would be very useful to have "Medical" as a trip tag since travel for medical is tax deductible. As a workaround, since I do not use the car to claim business driving expenses, I can use the "Business" tag when I really mean Medical.

Even more useful would be the ability for the user to add their own tags (picklist values since you are implemented on the platform).

I need to add tags other than Business but I am not able to find the option to do so in either the Android App or the Web Dashboard.

Please let me know where I may add tags.

Hey Andrej,

Thanks for reaching out.

At this time, the only tag that we have available is Business. It is a planned feature to add more tags, but at this time there is no ETA.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

I've been looking for a third party app to compensate for this but haven't had much luck. Tripdots has a lot of lag time in cycling between trips which makes it too much of a hassle to use just for custom tags.

I am also very interested in being able to create custom tags to categorize trips logged in Automatic. :)

Is there a means to tag a trip something other than Business?

The support of custom, user defined tags would be quite useful, and help make sense of all this trip data being collected.  The "Business" tag is very useful, but even that could be further broken down with additional tags, to mark business lunches, meetings, or travel to client sites etc., for instance.  Personal travel could be sub-categorized as well to gain additional insights. Help us visualize all this data!

I would also Heavily Support this feature, Additionally including Multiple instances of such along with the idea of adding "Auto Tag trips" so that I can have multiple Automatic Geolocation based tags for multiple regular trips/ clients/ work locations in addition to just adding multiple labels or tags manually!

Thanks so much Amy, Jonathan and Crew!
