Adding a Label and Jump To component to automations

Updated on October 19, 2022

Use Label and Jump To (label) items to connect one set of automation steps to a different set.

Labels are similar to bookmarks in Word. You can flag an automation block as a Label and then jump to that block when necessary. For example, if you need to connect a variable to a method, instead of a long execution line or data path, you can quickly connect them with a Label-Jump To pair.

Once the steps in the Jump To subautomation complete, the automation resumes at the point where the Jump To (link) was executed.

Note: This functionality can only be used within the same automation.
  1. On the Automation Surface, right-click to open the options menu.
  2. Click AddLabel.

    Automation surface right-click menu with Add options shown and Label highlighted.
  3. On the automation block, click the label name to edit the name and give it a more descriptive title.
