There are two ways to input labels and categories into to Jolt’s custom labeling system. The first part of this tutorial will teach you how to create individual categories and labels, one at a time. The second part of this tutorial will save you time by teaching you more about the Bulk Import feature, allowing you to input multiple labels all at one once. Please follow along with this tutorial to learn more.
