Project tags

Create and assign tags to organize and filter your projects.

Project tags help you organize your projects and search them intuitively and efficiently.

As you create more projects in Labelbox, the ability to manage and navigate a flat list of these projects can become increasingly difficult. Project tags help you denote a specific category of information. You can use tags to organize projects by use case, priority, the type of asset to be labeled, or any structure you choose. You can also use tags to filter your projects.

Tags visible on the project list and within a project

Tags are visible on the project list and within a project.

A tag will consist of a name (string value) and an associated color. Tags will be visible to all members who have access to associated projects. However, only admins can manage (create, update, or delete) the set of tags or apply them to projects.

Note that tags and projects have a many-to-many relationship. Thus, a single tag can be added to multiple projects and a single project can have multiple tags added to it.

Project tags are visible on the Annotate page as well as from within a project.

Create and view tags

To view a list of all tags, click the Tags button on the Projects page. This will open the Manage tags modal that shows a list of all existing tags (if any) with the option to add more.

Add or remove tags from a project

Once tags are created, you can assign them to specific projects from the Annotate page as well as from within a project.

From the Annotate page, navigate to the rightmost portion of the row associated with the specific project. Click on the vertical ellipsis and select Edit info. You will then be prompted with a modal in which you can manage the tags assigned to the project.

Adding a tag to a project

From within a project, click on the Edit icon in the top right corner of the Overview tab. This will open up the same modal that will allow you to assign a tag from the existing list of tags within your workspace.

To remove a tag, you can simply X out the tag to disconnect it from the project.

Modify or delete tags

For existing tags, you can modify or delete the tag values at any point from the Manage tags modal by clicking the Tags button on the Annotate page. Once you are in the modal, hover over any tag to reveal the Modify and Delete buttons.

Clicking on Modify opens up the ability to simply change the text or color value in place. Once you have put in your change, click the Enter key to confirm your change.

Similarly, click Delete to delete a tag. Labelbox will ask you for confirmation before deletion. Deleting a tag from your workspace will remove the tag from all assigned projects.

Filter projects by tags

Once you have added tags to projects, you can filter projects by specific tag(s). On the Annotate page, use the Tags dropdown to select one or more tags on which to filter. Note that the Tags dropdown filter becomes visible only after you have added a tag to at least one project.
