A Label is a way to group different kinds of [Models] together. In Multipass a [Label] can be used on all the different kinds of Models. They can be nested to create a hierarchy that works for your [Team].

Labels are used to group Models together.

For example we at DaktaDeo have a label 3D. We use this label on all the different kinds of Models that are related to 3D printing. This means that we can tag [Contacts] with it to find those related to that side of the business, but also use the same Label to tag our [Products], [Invoices], [Media], ..

Label vs Type

Even when you think your [Label] will only be used on one type of [Model], it might be a good idea to use a Label instead of a [Type]. This way you can use the Label to group Models together and the Type to add a specific meaning to a Model.

You can also use a Label and a [Type] at the same time, and this is actually a good robuust idea to create powerful hierarchies. Sometimes this way of structuring data will allow for minimal repetition of data.

Remember: you can always change your mind later on!


What is the difference with a [Type]?

  • A [Type] is specific for one type of Model.
  • A [Label] can be used on all the different kinds of Models.
  • A [Label] can have children, a [Type] cannot.
  • You actually can have a [Label] 3D and a [Type] 3D at the same time.

When to use a Label?

  • When you want to group different kinds of Models together
  • When you want to create a hierarchy
  • If it makes sense to use the same Label on different kinds of Models. For example: 3D can be used on [Contacts], [Products], [Invoices], [Media], .. but land line only makes sense for a [Phone number].
