Can I add a filter for a custome label field?

At the top of a board we get a search box, member list and quick filters. 

The preset Jira Label field does show up as a quick filter. I wanted to create a custom Label field so I could change the name of the field to make it more descriptive, but it does now show up in the quick filter section. 


Is there a way to add a filter for this custom label field?

Currently it's only showing the preset "Type" Jira field, but not my custom label field.
