Improve TAG with a TAG Manager

[1] Edit a tag. For example if I have created a tag #tevelision and I want to correct it into #television, I can simply just do it with the edit function of the tag manager. Another user has already proposed this feature but the answer (use the search field to find the misspelled tag and correct it) is unthinkable if you have used the tag a lot of times.

[2] Remove a tag. If you remove a tag from the tag manager, it is removed from any previous records.

[3] Icon selection. I can choose an icon for any tag (both for my personal tags and default tags). The app offers an icons package (minimum 10-15 icons, preferably 30 at least), and I can use these icons as I prefer.

(3A) I can also import an icon from my gallery.
(3B) An option to disable icons, and see only the string.
(3C) Insted of see “#food #sport #work” it’s better to see something like this

   {icon} Food
   {icon} Sport
   {icon} Work

  in which {icon} is the icon associated with the tag.

[4] Assign to a tag a state: GOOD, BAD, or nothing. For example in the current version #food is mark as bad (red), and #sport is mark like good (green). My idea is to assign bad or good state also for my personal tags, and also changes the default states.

[4] Tags separated from the “diary”. Currently you must write something like “#food #sport Last night I slept very well!”: I think it is better to have two separated areas, one for “#food #sport” and another for “Last night I slept very well!”.

[5] Locations separated from tags. Now the default tag #home is just a simple tag. I think it would be better that the place where you sleep is separate from the tags, or at least that it was in evidence.

(5A) Statistics about locations: for example the place in which you sleep more and something similar.
(5B) Default location: the app automatically insert it in the record.

[6] If I add a tag during the sleep monitoring, add this tag on the sleep graph. In this way I know the time at which I have inserted the tag.

[7] What I am about to say was already implicit in the previous paragraphs, but it is better to specify: add a “Tag Manager” panel in which I can see all the used tags, and eventually remove tags, add new tags, edit a tag (name and icon).

[8] Very detailed statistics about tags: [a] better/worst combination of tags to increase sleep time, [b] better/worst combination of tags to increase deep sleep, [c] better/worst combination of tags to increase the number of REM phases, [d] tag on average more present in longer sleep, [e] tag on average more present in shorter sleep, [f] number of times it has been used each tag (ordered descendants, ascendants or alphabetically, according to user preference), [g] the ability to see the global statistics (i.e. considering all the present records), or annual, semi-annual, monthly, weekly, [h] if it is implemented the point 6, the most used tag during the sleep monitoring, [i] better/worst combination of tags to have another tag (for example I have the tag #insomnia, and to try to understand why I can not sleep I select this tag, and I see the tags combination that increases/decreases the presence of this tag), [l] etc.

[9] Automated tags: for example, I can choose that Tuesday is automatically added the #sport tag.

[10] Sub-tags: for example #baddream and #goddream could be sub-tags of #dream; If I add #goddream is automatically added #dream. Another example could be the #sport tag, with #football, #soccer, #swimming, etc. sub-tags. In the tag manager page I can select a “father” for every tag.

I think the Sleepmeter guy just plain quit and sees no reason to change anything. The best things he has are what Aids and Hindrances. You could just add tags in either a positive or negative category. Second thing, and this is unique, I think, is the concept of sleep "holes." If you awaken often or even just sometimes, the awake time is subtracted from the total. And because of Aids and Hindrances, you get a picture of what is helping or hindering your awakenings or lack theteof. Awakenings are terrible and your app has helped so very much! Less "sleep holes."

He has nearly deprecated his app: 2 years and no updates at all. So, the really cool parts are fair game if they've given up. Is that ethical? Because the features shouldn't die even if the developer got bored.

especialy tag manager woud help, i'm in vacation and my sleeps got #geo1. For each of the following i have to manually type the same location.
About the sport, I noticed that i doesn't matter the exact sport but the intensity, duration, and hours before going to bad. And this is also what my doctors told me. Sport is energizing so it's better to do it in the first part of the day. Anyway, if we would have tag manager, one could bıild his own tags for all.

+Petra Nálevka That would be extremely cool! Integration with Sleepmeter. But he's not dedicated like you guys: he added material design, quashed some bugs from it, and then no updates since. But he's brilliant and really funny!

And this suggestion actually describea Sleepmeter.

I really need to be able to change location tags, by that I mean naming the place. I don't really remember what location 1, 2, 3 or 0 was, and I need to be able to save many more locations as I travel a lot for work.

This should be great!

Some tag could be added automatically. The weather for instance. I should just give my GPS position, and the app will figure everything.

The goes with the sports. Fitness tracker can be used.

+Robin, I'm happy to provide any guidance to SleepMeter on this if they like to integrate…

I am more interested in the core app functioning as well as possible. I have a sleep diary app called Sleepmeter that does all that and more. Only kick about it is that the only tracker it imports is Sleep Bot, which is notoriously inaccurate. I will ask him if he can access Sleep Cloud and import from there.

SaA is VERY good - great at what its supposed to do. It doesn't have to do the work of several apps. Just leave the ability to hook into those apps, which it ALSO does.


Agreed! If I’m woken up by a crying baby, as a non-parent, something is terribly wrong. :wink:


I wish to edit/customise the tags list where can I do that?
I have the paid version of SaA


Tags customization order, icon, autocomplete, wpuld be nice feature.
