An item can have any number of labels.

Labels can be either private or shared. When shared, any member of your team can see and toggle the label.

Add a label by clicking on the + button in the collaboration panel, or by hitting [⌘L]:


Search for an existing label, or select the “New label” option to create a new one from your search:


Click on the label and select “Edit” to change the name, share it, or delete it:


Once shared, a label can’t made private again (because someone else on your team might already be using it).
