What are labels and what can you do with them throughout the system?

Fast identification of documents with labels.

Labels are predefined indications within RentMagic that can be used on various tables. Labels are informative and can be used to indicate certain records with one or more labels. Labels can be used as identifier or to indicate information for example on a frontend. Labels can be selected on a record in a selection box, where one or more values can be selected.

You can also give labels a colour.

To open the overview of all labels within RentMagic:

  • In the main menu, navigate to Settings > Rental > Labels.

The label overview will now open.

  • Use the filter to search for a specific label using a keyword.

New label

Changing a label

If the label that will be modified has been used before, the existing labels selected on records will also change names throughout the system. This means that you cannot just change a label; you must first consider whether the change will affect the existing information.

The details form is displayed.
