Multi-level custom tags

Some things that I track are layered, and that currently means I need to track several tags for one action. For example, drinking coffee and drinking tea both have another layer of “caffeine”.

It would be great if there was a way to create “child” tags that automatically tag their parents as well, to prevent excess work when tracking layered things.

    Not sure about the feasibility of this, but I’ve approved it so we can think about it at least :)

    to be sincere, one of the most frustrating issues was the inability to add any kind of punctuation and/or capitalising to custom tags – grouping/nesting them like “sleep: home” and “sleep: girlfriend’s place” would make them easier to enter

    I’d also love this, mostly for “alcohol/beer”, “alcohol/whisky” 😂

    Perhaps if there is a slash or dash in the tag name, it puts both the whole tag but also, behind the scenes, the “tag group” (alcohol in the above example) is added as a tag as well?
