Labels are used to group devices for better organization allowing flexibility as your projects scale and grow. Think of a label as simply a group of devices.

Organizing with Labels

Labels are simply user-defined identifiers that can be attached to one or more devices. Also multiple labels can be added to a single device so users can choose to identify devices based on attributes such as geography (e.g. SF) and device type (e.g. temperature or humidity).

Add Labels

During device creation you can add an existing label or create a new one.

Alternatively you can create labels beforehand.

To add a new label, on the Devices page click the Add New Label icon.

The following screen appears.

Attaching Labels

Labels can be attached to devices during or after creation. If you would like to attach a label to a device during creation, make sure to create the label beforehand, and it will be available to select.

To attach a label after creating a new device, go to the specific device details page and click the Add Label button. You can choose an existing label from the dropdown list or create a label.

To attach a label to a device from the Flows workspace check here.
