I think it would be helpful to give people multiple labels. Some labels may refer to where they are in the sales process but other may be industry, sector, or a custom label that makes them easier to filter and search.
Of course @MMcKelvie totally agree.
It's unbelievable that Pipedrive doesn't have a comprehensive tagging system in 2023. Everyone and everywhere has it. (Google has it, Microsoft has it, Trello, you also have it here in the Community) It's a standard for sorting content. Incomprehensible ignorance.
Unfortunately "Labels" in Pipedrive look like tags (they have title and color) but they are not "Tags", because you can apply more of them to one record.
Someone can say: Do it by the Custom Field . Realy??
Which type of Custom Field they mean? Autocomplete? - no you cannot add multiple items. Multiselect? - no, you cannot add tags quickly, only in Settings. Other? Everything wrong. It's not option, is hacking,... this is at most an attempt to supplement a fundamental function that the system lacks.
OK, so may be you use Multiselect ... And the result?
As a new user of Pipedrive - I am shocked that this is missing.
Tags (Labels if you wish) are simply brilliant and genius. Tags should be available everywhere, system-wide, without restrictions. I hope someone at Piperive realizes this soon.
BTW apparently the UP VOTES counts were not carried over from the previous version, so the voting starts from scratch. Pipedrive declares that it listens to the Community. So we the Community must be loud 📢 and persistent 💪.
Thank you for this feedback! I totally agree, labels/tags are a brilliant way to organize pretty much everything and this idea isn't lost on us either.
The good news is that we're adding multiple label support shortly. We start from adding it to deals very soon - actually if everything goes according to plan, then you should already see them by the end of next week.
After this we'll start working on adding them to Persons and Organizations as well, can't promise on an exact date yet but first half of this year.
@Rene H thank you for your reply. Sounds really promising. I can't wait to see it implemented.
Note for others - there is a related update in Pipedrive API "Breaking change in label response field’s data type for Deals"
as @Túlio Abner de Lima mentioned here: https://community.pipedrive.com/discussion/comment/34275#Comment_34275
@Rene H Cheers for the update
