I'm doing time logging with Org, and I want to associate a numeric code with each entry -- the code says which project the entry is associated with. But I'm awful at remembering the numbers, so I'd like to somehow be able to associate aliases with the codes.
For example: I may associate "coolnewfeature1" with 123456; then when I type
C-c C-x p and enter "coolnewfeature1" for the "project" property value, Org would record 123456, so later when I use column view, I can see all the numbers. (Which is where I really need to see them.)
Is there some way to do this? If not, one alternative would be recording "coolnewfeature1" for the property, and somehow getting column view to map the easy-to-remember names to the codes.
