Labels

Overview

Labels are a flexible and lightweight way to categorize or decorate your tickets. A ticket can have as many labels as you like, or no labels at all.
Labeling tickets can help you and your teammates quickly get a sense of what a ticket is about. They can also help you find tickets you're looking for because they're included when you filter the board or search for tickets.

Step-by-step

Creating a label

To create a label, visit any ticket's page or start creating a new ticket and open the label picker dropdown by clicking + Labels. Type in the text for the new label. It will automatically be assigned a color and attached to the ticket. You can change the color afterward by editing the label.
Labels can contain spaces, but we recommend keeping them short so they're quick to read and recognize.

Attaching/detaching labels

To attach a label to an existing ticket, visit the ticket's page and open the label picker dropdown by clicking + Labels, then click the label you want to attach. You can attach as many labels as you want to the same ticket. Clicking an already attached label will detach it.
You can attach labels to new tickets as you're creating them on the board or via the dialog for creating new tickets.

Editing or deleting a label

To edit or delete a label, visit any ticket's page or start creating a new ticket and open the label picker dropdown by clicking + Labels, then click the pencil icon next to the label. A dialog will open where you can delete the label or edit its text or color.
When you delete a label, it won't be available to attach to tickets going forward. However, it will remain attached to tickets it was already attached to. That way, you can still filter and search for those tickets by label.
