Ability to archive custom tags

I recently decided to stop reporting on one of my custom tags. I found that the only way to remove the tag from my list of tags was to delete it, along with all the data I had previously reported.

Instead, I’d like to be able to archive tags. I don’t need a way to unarchive tags, or even the ability to see a list of my archived tags. I’d just like the ability to remove the tag from my list of current tags. But ideally when I look back on previous days that had that tag, I’d still see the reporting for that tag.

    Totally fair. We actually started this way, but without a means to delete tags, which meant if you made a typo or something you had that incorrect tag forever. As part of the upcoming manual tracking changes, I think we’ll probably make it possible to archive or delete all manual attributes, including tags.

    I’m excited about all the manual tracking work y’all are working on.

    In the meantime, I can probably soft-archive a tag by renaming it something like “zz_“, so it’s sorted at the end of my list.

    Hmm, the angle brackets I used got deleted. I meant “zz_ORIGINAL_NAME_OF_TAG”.

    Yeah, that’s one way folks are getting around it currently.
