Labels in Zoho WorkDrive


Labels help you to easily identify and access files and folders across different locations in WorkDrive. You can add labels based on priority, status, task, and much more. Once you add a label to files and folders, you can view all those items under each label.

Some sample labels can be:
  1. Important
  2. Note
  3. Boss
  4. Follow-up
  5. Potential Deals
  6. Presentation Ideas
  7. Business Reports

Now, let's get started on how to create, add, and manage labels in WorkDrive.

To create a label:

1. Select Labels in the left pane above My Folders.
2. Click Manage Labels in the top-right corner.
A new Manage Labels screen will open.

3. Enter a label name in the field at the bottom, then choose a label color.
4. Press Enter or click + to create the label.
