Manage labels

Managing labels requires the Save Existing Versions permission. Creating, editing, and deleting labels does not require that you save the profile, but if you add or remove a label from an item you must save the profile.

Label names

Label names can only contain unaccented letters (A–Z), numbers, and the underscore character. If you created a label with accented letters or punctuation marks prior to August 2017, you must rename the label without those characters before you can save changes or edit it.
