You can use User Labels to help organize Channel members, such as categorizing members by schools or departments in your institution (School of Medicine, Liberal Arts, Math, Physics…). The labels you create can be used for generating department level reports and for making customizations and delivering specific content to selected groups of members.
Create User Labels
There are two ways to create user labels:
Approach1: CSV create labels
You can upload a CSV file to create labels all at once. Put all the labels in one column on the CSV file and upload it from User Management—Manage User Labels—CSV Create Labels.
NOTE: User labels are case-sensitive (“Physics” and “physics” will be considered two different labels). Double check spelling before uploading CSV files.
Approach2: Manually create user labels
You can also follow these three steps to create labels one by one.
- Enter label name,
- Select a color for the label. By default labels are blue,
- Hit CREATE LABEL
Once the label is created, it will be put to the bottom of the label list.
Manage User Labels
All the labels (created through both approaches) will be shown on the user label list. The pencil icon will allow you to edit the name of the label and its color. If this label has been assigned to users, these updates will be automatically applied to the users.
Clicking the trashcan icon will remove the label from your Channel. If the label has been assigned to users, when deleting a label, you have two options: either remove the label from members who have been assigned the label, or remove the label and give the members another label (for example, when department A is merged into department B, remove label A from your Channel and assign label B to members of department A).
You may add new labels and edit or remove existing labels anytime.
