Add the option to make more than the default number of labels
also the ability to re-organize the labels in different orders, rather than ROYQBIV
Need more labels & Colours and please rethink the design. The small tabs on the right side are not very great. Look at trello, they do a great job.
Labels ON the card and you can expand the content... you have everything you need to know on one look.
Definitely need to have more labels. I see no need for a limit, but at least give us 20 to work with.

infinite labels and buckets

Use buckets instead? Not limited to 6

Add more labels!

We are also looking to replace Trello with Planner. There are a number of critical features that we require. One of which is the limitation with labels. Are there any plans to improve what is offered in this area?
I am looking at Planner as a replacement to Trello. But I need more than 6 labels. I'm flexible on ordering and colors, but I need more than 6.

We need more labels! At least as many as in Calendar, copying Trello would be nice.
I would also like to be able to set default label text so I don't have to type in the same names over and over again, each time I have a new standardized task.
YES! I use custom labels to tag each task in Trello with project number (40-50 projects/year), primary sub-vendors (2-4 per project, 15-20 total), and a few other items that allow me to quickly filter. The ability to create custom labels/tags and choose the color for each is very useful.
The main purpose of these tags/labels (for me) is to be able to filter them as well. I don't see an easy way to do this yet in Planner

Agreed, more labels and configuring the colours would be useful.

This would allow us to better use planner to manage our projects in, for example, GitLab - our standard labels include 16 different options - few issues will have more than 5, but it's pretty common for issues to have completely different labels.
This also lets us filter much more usefully across a plan with many tasks.
This would be really good! I have some Trello Boards with about 10 labels. I use them to filter my tasks in a fast way.
I dont need to "see" every label at the task, just let some of them be used to filter faster.
Would be great!

To be able to add more Planner labels and to be able to choose the colours for the labels that you creat
And also be able to choose colour for the created labels please. :)
