With this feature, there were two Tables added to Dataverse. The “Project Label” table that stores the details for the labels in a Project. Data gets added to this table when you click “Add label” for the first time in a project. If you change a label title, that change gets saved in the “Project Label” table. The second table added was “Project Task To Label”, this tables stores the details for the labels added to tasks. If you want to report on the label data, take a look at those tables to get started.
A nice simple feature added to Project for the web to help manage tasks.
