Task labels offer users the ability to visually distinguish and categorize tasks at a glance. They add an extra layer of information on the task progress and help your teammates stay in the know.
To activate labels for tasks, use a hashtag (#) and enter the label name, or choose from an existing list of labels within your workspace. Note that free workspaces are limited to 5 custom labels, while Co-pilot, Insights, and Enterprise users can create unlimited new labels.
You can use labels in the task title or description- and in a variety of ways:
You can use labels to specify task type i.e. #bug, #feature,… to help your teammates visualize the types of updates and tasks coming down the line.
To show what stage the task is in, you can use labels to indicate task status i.e. #in-review, #pending-approval,…
Labels can also be used to represent task priority i.e. #P1, #P2, #P3,… Prioritization is central to maintaining a streamlined workflow.
Note: Labels also function like a tagged search term, so you can look for tasks by label type. See this article to learn how to search for tasks using labels.
