How to organize your ActiveCampaign forms using labels

Labels are keywords that you can apply to your forms to keep them organized. Once a label is applied to a form, you can filter the Forms overview page by that label to quickly find what you need. While similar to folders, labels offer more flexibility as you can assign more than one label to a form.

The Forms, Automations, and Campaigns overview pages share the same labels. Any labels created on the Forms page will also be reflected on the Automations and Campaigns overview pages.
