Apply a label to a project
Apply a label to a project in source control in order to create a “snapshot” of the project that can be retrieved later.
To perform this task, you must be connected to your collaboration server.
Labels are used for version control within a project. When you attempt to get a specific version of a project, any labels that you have applied will be included in the list of available versions.
Applying a label to a project offers many of the same benefits as branching the project, but without having to create an entirely separate copy of the project.
To apply a label to a project:
- Save and close all open worksheets.
- Right-click the project root (e.g., Project: projectname.APP) in the Project Explorer, and then click Apply Label on the shortcut menu. The Apply Label page is displayed.
- In the Name box, type a name for the label. This is what will appear in the list of available versions.
- In the Comment box, type a description of the “snapshot”. This is optional.
- Click Create.
