Bug Description

Currently the sidebar only allows selecting one tag at a time. It should be possible to select more than one. For example "urgent" and "thisweek" are a feasible scenario.

Diego, thanks for the bug report.
I think this can be solved by the concept of "saved searches". See:

As such, I'm marking this at won't fix.
If anyone is against this, please reopen the bug.

It will be great functionality in GTG!
If compare functionality of multiple tags selection and complicated search mechanism the first is more simple and has natural interface for a man. So I vote for reopened this wish and do it. I think, that Ctrl+click in the tag panel have to select next tag. If multiple tags selected a user have to see tasks with ALL of selected tags In the Task list or Workview.

I agree with DmDr,

This functionality is very "KISS" from the point of view of the user. As DmDr said, it's natural for the user, as I tryed to do when I wanted to see the tasks that have more then one tag and be frustrated that it isn't do that.

I'm not against the search mechanism, but that functionality will be more useful IMHO.

So I vote to reopen this bug

On second though, search and "multi-tag select" (have a better name?) are not mutually exclusive, and the second doesn't clutter the UI (which is a big plus).
The only thing I'm afraid of is that users may get a bit disoriented having two ways to do the same thing. I guess that someday we need to update our guide :-)
Anyway, bug is re-opened

I also think one should be able to select many labels at once, and than obtain a list of tasks simultaneously having all these tags.

This is a fairly common operation, it should be very easy to do. Ctrl-click would be a nice way to go, as a lot of other GNOME tools use this already.

I will implement this with a "AND" filter (meaning that a task has to have all tags to be displayed). It's easier, we might change to a OR if it seems to be better.
