How can non-admin Users change labels on cards?


I am running an Agile Development project. I want users to be able to assign/change labels associated with their cards. For some reason they do not see this option. How do I give users permission to set labels?

Thank you,

Hey Jason

Are these same users that are not able to change labels able to edit, move, copy cards and perform other tasks? Immediatly, it sounds like they may have been added to the board as an observer, or added as a team member to the board but not fully on the board.

Any member of the board, if they aren't observer, should be able to contribute to the board in the same way including assigning and changing labels.

Being a member (or admin) of a team does not automatically grant access to a board, so a user will also need to be added to the board as a member.

Open a board and click on the "Show Menu" button in the top right-hand corner. The Add Member section is at the top.

That worked - thank you! 

Admin interface is a bit confusing because of this...but you identified exactly what needed to be done. Thanks again.
