Hi Emanoel,

When the labels disappear from your account, do they add to her account, and vise versa? There is a known issue such as this with Labels at this time, and we are looking into it.

We are looking into the issue.

There are a few issues with Labels, they basically do not work with Sharing at this time. Hope for a solution soon.

Brendon, Good news!!

I tried today add labels in two accounts repeatly.
i tought that labels would stay duplicate, but it didn´t.
when i did this in my account, todoist sync to wife´s account and delete the my labels.
When i did in wife´s account, todois sync to my account and delete the label duplicate in wife´s account.

it is only way that i found to work labels in tasks shared.

I stay to wait for a solution more simple.

Hey guys!

The shared labels appears to be working as of this morning. My wife and I are able to see labels across both our tasks. For example, if I assign her a task "take out the garbage" with the tag "@home" we can both see the label now -whereas even as recently as yesterday this was not the case- and it shows up in her "@home" label list.

Staffers- can you provide any input or feedback about this? (+1)

A little extra information... The shared labels appear NOT to work on projects and tasks created before today, but DO appear to work on projects and tasks created today.

What I mean is if a task created before today in a shared project created before today has a label that I added, my wife (with whom the project is shared) cannot see the label. Additionally, if I move the task (created before today) to a project created today, the label is still not visible.

Tasks created today in projects created before today have shared label visibility.
