Introduction

Whether we’re talking about emails in your inbox or errors in your production application, labels are an effective tool for sorting, tracking, and filtering items. In OverOps, you can group errors and exceptions by tagging them with your own custom labels. Mark exceptions by their importance, your teammate’s name, its area in the code, or any other way that best fits your workflow. Once you create a label, your teammates will be able to see it and tag errors with it themselves.

 

Creating a New Label

To create a label, click on the “Label” button between the dashboard and the graph, select “Create New” from the dropdown, then type in the label name. The new label will be immediately added to your list of labels.

Labeling and Unlabeling Errors

To apply a label to an error or errors, select the items you’re interested in labeling and open the “Label” dropdown menu. Tick the box for the label(s) you want and click “Apply”. Voila!

To remove a label from an error or an exception select it in the grid, open the labels menu, deselect the applied label, and click “Apply.”

 

Filtering by Labels

Like the pre-set filters in OverOps, labels provide another way to group and sort your errors. The left side menu bar shows you all the labels that you've created. Once your labels are in place you can view all the errors that you’ve added to them by clicking on the label you want on your left side menu bar. The dashboard will show you all the errors that have that label, exactly where errors with that label are classified (Inbox, Hide, or Resolved), and any other labels they may have.

Deleting Labels

If you want to get rid a label entirely, you can delete it. Deleting a label will remove the label you deleted from all the items it’s applied to and will delete the label itself. There are two ways to delete labels. The first way is to delete them through the Label dropdown menu. To do so, click on the “Label” dropdown menu, select “Manage labels”, and hit the “x” next to the label you’d like to remove.

The second way to remove a particular label is through the left side menu bar. To delete a label this way, find the label you'd like to delete on the left menu bar and press the ‘x’  next to it to delete it.
