Create a Map Label

Map Labels are a way for you to customize your map by adding labels directly on the map to indicate an area or even fill in road names.

Creating a Map Label is done on the Territory Edit Details page. Switch to edit mode (if you are not sure how to do this check out the View and Edit Basics guide).

A Map Label can be created a number of different ways. Two common practices is to use the draw tool or by right-clicking (or ctrl+click) on the map.

Creating With the Draw Tool

The Map Label draw tool is used in the same way the territory tool is used. Simply select the Map Label tool as shown in the image below and then click on the map where you would like to place the Map Label.

Right-clicking (or ctrl+click) on the Map

A Map Label can be be added straight to the map by right-clicking (or ctrl+click) and creating the Map Label from the context menu as shown in the image below.


Once you have decided where you would like to add a Map Label, a creation dialog will appear allowing you to fill in information about the Map Label. An example of the dialog is shown in the image below.
After filling out the fields, clicking the save button will complete the Map Label and place it on the map as shown in the image below. For more information about the fields within the creation dialog take a look at the Properties guide.


A Map Label may be added to follow or fit in a feature on the map in which case rotating the Map Label becomes necessary. Hovering over the Map Label will display a rotate handle which can be dragged to the rotation desired, similar to what is shown in the image below.
