Thanks for the help.

I have 8 calendars in iCal, all representing my different areas of responsibility with life and business.

I want to be able to create an errand for "business #1" or "business #2" and then in omnifocus (on mac and iphone), if I'm presently working for Business #1, I want to view all my related todo's for that role, and nothing else for the moment. Likewise for Business #2.

If I'm waiting on a call back, or for someone else associated with business #2 to do something, I want to be able to view all "Waiting For" for business #2 only.

I'll watch the long video to get a better understanding of the software.

Being a bit A.D.D., I have trouble with systems. This is why I like the ability in other apps to put multiple tags on something. This way, I don't have to think too much about the "right" tag. If I'm going to talk to my wife on the phone about her bookkeeping for my business #1, I want to tag the ToDo as Phone, Spouse, and Business #1. And possibly later, I may want to add the tag "Waiting For".
