Using Labels in Typecase

Understand what Labels are and how to use them on pages on the University website.

When to use Labels

You should use Labels in Typecase when you want to:

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 you think you need a new Label, you should email with a summary of why you need a Label and what it should be named.

Only Typecase Admins and Editors can add Labels to content items.

To add a Label to a page:

  1. Open the page in Typecase.
  2. Under 'Labels', select the Label you need from the drop-down menu.
  3. Click 'Add Label' to add it to the page.
  4. Repeat the process to add all the Labels you need.
  5. 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

You should regularly check if unused Labels can be removed from your page. 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.
