Adding custom selections to label menus

As a case business analyst, you can create labels for cases, tasks, case templates, task templates, service target configurations, document templates, activity note templates, notification templates, email templates, case read access mappings, assignment mappings, and approval configurations. Labels help case agents to sort cases, tasks, templates, and mappings. For example, you create labels to add new case priority values, such as Urgent, Important, and so on, for your organization. While creating cases that need to be resolved urgently, case agents select the Urgent label for the cases. A case manager who wants to view all the cases that need to be resolved urgently, filters the cases by using the Urgent label.
