Ability to rename custom tags

Previously, we could only delete an attribute (and lose all relative data) and then create a new one.

    We’re thinking about the best way to manage this, but it makes sense so it should happen eventually.

    It would be quite nice to specify whether they were morning, afternoon or evening.

    If I’m interested in correlations between exercise and sleep, I might be interested to know whether exercise in the evening has a major impact, but exercise in the morning doesn’t. I might also like to be able to make the distinction between exercise in the morning resulting in a productivity boost.

    Being able to rename custom tags will help with this; I would be able to create a tag for morning exercise and evening exercise, but it feels like I would probably be doubling them up for most of the tags I have. Should I add a new feature request for this, or does it belong here?

    We won’t be adding time-of-day granularity to tags or any other values in the immediate future, sorry (big architectural change, too many other things already planned) so renaming them to specify morning and evening is probably your best shot. Renaming will happen at some point, there’s just so much to do!

    The renaming would be awesome!

    Yes, clearly a feature that would make custom tracking more “friendly.” Can’t wait :-)

    I’d love to see this as well. I think the built-in correlations make Exist a potentially amazing tracker. I’d love to use it for things like habits, but I’m not sure I can justify using it for that, as much as I want to, if a naming error can only be corrected by losing data.

    Done! You’ll see a rename link next to all your tags on your attributes page.
