    How labels are created in Gmail

    Labels provide an easy way to organize your inbox. You can create a complete label hierarchy with Gmail by nesting sub tags under a parent label to allow more effective email management. For example, you can create a label called Bills to organize all purchase documents, and set up a subfolder called Google for all purchases on the Play Store and other Google domains.
