Labels are a quick and clear way to organize all the files in your projects. For example, you might label files as a report, presentation, or sketch.
Adding a Label
- Next to any file in Basecamp 2, you'll see a button that says "Label…" To label a file, click that button and name your label with a memorable term.
- Start typing the name of your label. Once you're done typing, click "Add label." When a label was already used somewhere else, Basecamp automatically suggests it so you can select it.
- The label will appear next to the file.
Removing a Label
- Click on the "Label..." button next to your file. Each label will have a red delete icon. Clicking that icon removes the label from the file.
Viewing Your Labeled Files
- In a project, clicking the 'all files' pill will show you all labels in a project.
- Clicking a specific label will show you a list of all the files with that label in your project.
- To see all files in your account with a label, use the search box and start typing your label. Matching labels will appear.
Editing or Deleting a Label
- To change or remove a label entirely, click on the label in one of your files to jump to the label's page and click the down-arrow icon next to the label's name.
