Clearing specific labels instead of the whole field.


We have a use case where we'd like to be able to add tags when switching a status.   The automation addon appears to be able to clear the entire labels field, or add labels.  But, what about removing a specific label while leaving existing labels intact?   i.e. we don't want to have to clear all labels in order to remove just 1.

Thank you,

Hi Larry,

Yes, you can set the labels field to add & remove mode by hitting the '...' button next to it.



This allows you to add/remove individual labels from the existing set.




How on earth did I miss that.  Thank you!!
