Add/Remove Labels, Sort Labels, More Label Colors
To summarize these requests, we’d like the following:
1) The ability to add and remove labels.
2) When the “Group by Labels” option is selected, the ability to change the order of the columns (e.g., “Move right” and “Move left” similar to the “Group by Bucket” column)
3) In the Task view, the ability to change the order of the label tabs.
4) The ability to change the color of the labels and add more colors.
Here's a list of many feedback entries requesting these ideas:

Is there any point to voting and posting comments on here?
Genuinely interested, as they seem to be completely ignored.
Jim Tolman commented
Why is this not happening?
We need the ability to add more labels.
Joseph Dunphy commented
+1 please allow us the ability to change labels how we see fit; I want to change the colors of the labels to match colors we have associated internally with stakeholder groups/products, reorder them if I need to (so the most used labels we can move towards the top as it changes), create new labels and archive old ones so I don't lose historical value for project boards we would leverage for long periods of time.
Joel Frenette commented
Please allow for more than 6 labels, and also ability to set the labels globally for all plans.
+1 ran into issues with it today.
I'm both glad and discouraged that there are so many others like me.

Would also love to be able to set permissions by labels!
Make it like Trello, can display colours and names , add labels , lots of colours. Please colour tasks with label colour to make it visual.
Axel Kuester commented
Labels from tasks inside a bucket shall be propagated to the Bucket itself.
This feature is critical for Planner Hub on Android! Without Planner Hub is only of very limited usability
Axel Kuester commented
I would like to have 3 groups of labels, clearly distinguished by type and colour for timeline, criticality and a free defineable category.
A must of a reasonable Planner

To the Planner Team: I suggest you sum the total number of votes in the different ideas posted. My guess is that the idea of "handling" labels is one of the most wanted...
Thanks Mike for the compilation above :)
Lets not make this too complicated and end up waiting until 2020. Just having more labels would be a huge productivity boost. Personally, currently using the labels to filter by plant area / external resource / business priority / Risk factor
Just make it like the Best in Class in this matter : Trello
You set labels yourself, it is unlimited, you can display just labels or labels & names...
6, not agile, is a joke !
yes clearly this would be great. as labels are visual mostly on the task, it can really differ from one person to another the way we interpret and use colors
