How labels and tags are synced by Unito

Tags and labels are an important element of the project management tools we sync so we ought to sync them from the beginning.

When you create a flow between two tools we support, labels and tags sync automatically by default if Unito's auto-mapping technology finds them in both tools.

Let's say you have a "bug" label in GitHub and a "bug" tag in Asana. Unito will map them right out of the box so any work item syncing between both tools will keep the tag/label attached to it.

How to customize how labels and tags sync

Find your tag/label mapping in your flow settings, under the "Map Fields" tab, and expand it by clicking the gear icon to the right:

In this example, you can see we've mapped two labels together that aren't equivalent. If you wanted to add in other label 'groups', you can click the plus sign to map more labels together. With this feature, you can make any label in either block turn into another one in the other - you can customize all of this however you'd like!

Label and tag syncing with Wrike

Wrike does not have labels, but don't hesitate to map your other tags/labels to the Wrike task description footer so you don't miss any data.

You can also use rules to filter work items by labels or tags. Read this guide for more information.

Label syncing in Jira

Jira has a few quirks when it comes to syncing labels. First, unlike some other tools, you can't manually customize the syncing of labels. That's because labels have to match exactly in order to sync to — and from — Jira projects. That requirement is case-sensitive, so make sure you're not trying to sync a To-Do label with a to-do one.
