Customizing Labels

When a label is created, color is chosen randomly and most often it is not appropriate for the label meaning.

Follow these steps to change color of a label:

  1. Go to a repository → the Pull requests page.

  2. Choose a pull request and open the overview.

  3. Activate the Labels section by clicking on the pencil icon.

  4. Click on a label and choose a suggested color or enter a HEX color code in input field.

Color is changed immediately.
