How to Add Labels to Pins

Use custom labels to identify locations in seconds.

1. OPEN YOUR MAP
You can open your map by single clicking the name, double clicking anywhere on the row, or by single clicking on the row and clicking the "Open" button. If you don't have a map created, click on the "Add New Items" button. Then select, "New Map" and give it a name.
2. CLICK ON THE DATASET MENU
To access the dataset menu, left or right click anywhere on the dataset name, or hover over the row and click on the "Menu" button. If you don't have a dataset on your map, you can add one in seconds!
3. SELECT "LABEL"
Once the dataset menu is opened, click on "Label." For a shortcut, once the Label tool is added, you can access the menu by clicking on the arrows next to the map name, and then by clicking on the Label icon.
4. SELECT WHAT APPEARS IN THE LABEL
Choose which columns to include in the label by checking the corresponding boxes. You can also choose whether or not to include the column name itself in the label, i.e. City: Denver. Change the cluster radius to help in areas that have a lot of locations to prevent the labels from crowding the map.
5. CUSTOMIZE THE STYLING
Customize how your label appears on the map by changing the font size and color. You can also bold or italicized the font. Finally, you can choose whether or not to include a background for the label and what color it is.
6. CLICK "OK"
After clicking "OK", you'll see the labels attached to each pin to help you easily identify what's what.
