From this article you will learn:

What are the labels in Rossum

Labels are designed to enhance your document organisation capabilities. Now you can tag annotations with customised labels of your choice. The tool allows you to efficiently manage your documents, distribute work among annotators, and quickly locate relevant information in your queues.

Activating the feature on your account

Activating labels on your Rossum account is a straightforward process. This feature is free of charge and can be enabled upon customer request. To get started, simply reach out to our dedicated support team at

How to create and manage labels

The ability to create and manage labels within your account is limited to users with an Admin role.

To add a new label or remove an existing one, navigate to the “Settings” section in your account.


All labels associated with your account can be found in the “Labels” tab.


From here, you have the option to easily create a new label.


If you need to modify an existing label, simply click on it, and a pop-up window will appear with further options.


Removing an existing label is also possible. However, please be aware that deleting a label will result in its permanent removal from the organisation, and from all the annotations connected to it.


You can conveniently create new labels or access the settings directly from the the queue view. Additional choices become accessible when assigning labels to annotations.


Labels can also be also managed through the API.

Working with labels

Upon activation, you will notice a new column titled “Labels” in your queue view. 


To assign labels to specific annotations, you can select the relevant annotations and choose the appropriate tags from the provided options. It is possible to assign multiple labels to a single annotation.


Utilising the power of this feature, you can easily filter and search for specific records within your queues, enabling you to find relevant information swiftly. It is important to note that if you switch to another queue, the applied filters will remain active, ensuring a seamless and uninterrupted workflow.


Limitations of the feature

While labels in Rossum offer valuable benefits, the feature has a limitation: 

  • You have to assign labels manually as there is no automatic labelling functionality integrated at this time.
