Google adds nested labels to Gmail's repertoire

April 9th, 2010 at 9:14 AM

Since day one, Google has stood by its use of labels, as opposed to folders, in its Gmail email system: “labels are more flexible than folders because a given email can have several labels but can’t be in several folders at the same time,” explains Google. Today, Gmail is adding more functionality to these labels by allowing users to utilize nested labels to organize their email. Here is what Google has to say about the new feature:

If you think this might be useful to you, go to the Gmail Labs tab under Settings, look for “Nested Labels,” enable it and click “Save.” You’ll then need to name your label with slashes (/) to make it the child of another. For example, let’s say you wanted to create a simple hierarchy with a “Home” label, and inside it a “Family” and a “Vacation” label. Just create three labels with the following names:

Home
Home/Family
Home/Vacation

You can then create “Home/Family/Kids,” “Home/Pets,” etc., to get something like the screenshot on the left. If you had the parent label “Home” before you don’t have to create it from scratch.

This feature has been “available” for quite some time via the “Folders4Gmail” mod, but it is nice to see Google officially roll this feature into Gmail. Any of you Gmail freaks excited about this new feature?
