When to use Labels
You should use Labels in Typecase when you want to:
- make pages available to be pinned to Topic pages
- create filtered lists of content
Your page should only have Labels if they are needed for one of these reasons. Don't add Labels as if they're keywords or blog tags. This could make your content item appear in places it shouldn't be.
Pages can have up to 12 Labels at any time.
Request a Label
Only Typecase Admins can create a Label.
If your Typecase role is Editor, Author or Contributor and think you need a new Label you should email email@example.com with a summary of why you need a Label creating and what it should be named.
Add an existing Label to a page
Only Typecase Admins and Editors can add Labels to content items.
To add a Label a page:
- Open the page in Typecase.
- Under 'Labels', select the Label you need from the drop-down menu.
- Click 'Add Label' to add it to the page.
- Repeat the process to add all the Labels you need.
- Publish the page to update the changes.
You must republish a page with the Label for it to appear in a filtered list or in the drop-down menu in a Pinned items component.
Maintaining your pages
It is good practice to regularly check if unused Labels can be removed from your page, for example, Labels from past academic years, like the 2021 Label. Read more about maintaining your pages.
Labels on Topics
You can add Labels to any content item apart from a Topic page. If you want to link users from one Topic to another, use an External item.
