The to-read etc shelves you should just use the "Sync" functionality to handle your updates. That gives you all the power to do stuff like removing a tag, adding a tag, setting a custom column value etc.
What actual shelves are you "moving around" on a weekly basis?
I do not use it for my to-read, currently-reading, read shelves. These three are being updated correctly in a separate column. Oh and sorry I posted a pic of this column instead of the one for the goodreads other shelves. But I have my genres setup for my own personal genre's and also for shelves on whether I would want to read the book again, is it a favorite, is it a favorite author... Anyway, when I finish reading a book I want to update the shelves to match their new location, I have been manually doing this on the goodreads website, but I am having a hard time getting Calibre to only have the current shelves in the tags2 field.
