Description

It could be great to have several categories for each task. We could categorize our tasks in some parallel ways. We use the way in JIRA.

For example, each task could have two categories - which team should work on it, and which part of the project is it. For example: "Ruby, Task List" or "JS, Task List" or "Design, Task List" - all of the tasks are some improvements of a Task List, but the tasks should be done by different teams (Ruby, JS, Design).

So, it could be helpful to have two categories for the tasks, because each team could filter only their tasks. And manager could filter tasks by project parts to see general progress...

Hmm... I think, this specific request would be satisfied using user groups, when the groups will be available =) But several categories maybe helpful for other things.

+1 to this request. Adding versatility to the Categories feature is in high demand since it's the only list field that allows users to add new entries as needed.

Allowing multi-select for this could let categories become just like 'tags', letting users select the appropriate tags if they exist, and add new ones if not. To that end, if multi-select is added to categories, it might be best to turn it into a combo box for auto-complete.

Absolutely! Multiple categories will help significantly.

Thanks Luis Roa.

You should create plugin from this. I suggest this to be in the main release since its very useful. My projects are lead by several different departments and each department wants to categorize for itself.
