What are the small numbers for?

Asked by Erdal Ronahi on 2009-08-01

I cannot figure out what the small numbers in the "Tags" pane mean. Some tag categories have a small number, others don't. Could not even see whether this is related to due dates or subtasks or whatever.

Also found nothing on this in the documentation.

So what do the small numbers mean?

Small numbers represent the number of active tasks associated with a tag. Having the number "2" besides a tag means that 2 active tasks are tagged with it.

Hope it helps,

What's an "active" task then? A task that has a "due date"?

For me the numbers correspond to nothing. I have four tasks with dates, but the number in "All tags" is 3.
The number in my biggest category is 2, although there are 10 tasks there, 3 of which have dates associated.

It may be a bug or a package incompatibility, since I am using GTG 0.1.2 from testing on a Lenny machine.

That's trange, I never noticed such a bug. You should submit a bug describing this.
