  • Manage Community Role

Notes

  • Once created, these labels can be applied to various items within a Project, and then used within the Community level Project Dashboards to see very specific data across your Projects.
  • When removing an existing Cross Project Label, the system will prompt you regarding where the label is currently in use, and thus what will be affected if you remove the label. Be careful when removing an existing Cross Project Label, as it could already be in use across many Projects!
