You can now label files and messages. Earlier, labels were limited to tasks, polls, and approvals.
Files serve as an enabler for task completion while messages act as a catalyst for task planning. We all have our fair share of instances where we would desperately be looking for that one file or a message which was highly important.
In order to put an end to this, we have introduced labels for files and messages.
By labeling files and messages, you don't have to communicate individually to team members regarding the importance of the same.
For instance, you are a part of the digital marketing team. You work as a content writer. So, all blog posts and content that you write is subject to the approval of your team members. Now, assume that the article will go live on the company website in a day or two. You have to communicate to all the concerned people that the file is important.
How do you do it?
This where labeling files come to your aid. Attach a label to the uploaded file. Let the name of the corresponding label be 'High Priority'. It is better to create a label beforehand.
Attach the label and communicate the details through the message. This way the team members will know that the file is important and has to be read and approved at the earliest.
So, let's learn how to label files. Ready?
Upload a file and place the cursor on the file hover. Open the context menu. As it appears, click on 'Attach or remove label'. A small window will now appear. Below is the image of the same.
Next, start typing the name of the label to be attached.
Click the respective label and voila! your label is attached.
The notification for the same will appear on the screen like the below image.
You can view the file in the dedicated files tab. This tab makes files easily accessible. Refer the image below.
Watch the video below to have a comprehensive understanding of the same.
Now, let's talk about messages. You send and receive a lot of messages. It's not possible always to remember the context or the tab it was sent in. Now, suddenly you are in a dire need to view a certain message. You have no option but to look for it manually.
With labels, you will no longer break a sweat. Whenever you send an important message to someone, attach a label so that the message is in one place.
For instance, say you are a part of the marketing team at a firm. You working on something important, which should be known to the team. You don't have to call each person individually to convey the importance of the message, instead send the message and attach a label. In this case, let the label be 'Priority/Critical'.
This way the message is prioritized and everyone will read it.
The process for labeling messages is no different from labeling files.
When a message is labeled, the screen would appear like the one below.
