Hi Ross,

For my setup I have multiple files that are work related.  Everything in
the file is work related (or not).  I put a #+FILETAGS: entry at the top
which tags all tasks for work - then I can limit the agenda to WORK
tasks easily.

,----[ norang.org ]

I'm currently filtering stuff I'm supposed to do @Work with my @Work
tag.  There are other tags in the file (like NORANG above) that allows
me to limit it specifically to a single client etc.

Then I added a entry for @Work to org-tag-alist using 'W' so I can
filter by this tag easily.

Does that help?
