And now we are going to discuss new feature where you can create nested labels to organize your emails in Inbox properly. If your emails are organized, it takes lesser time to get them back in case of emergency.

To enable Nested Labels feature in Gmail, go to “Labs” in the settings options on your Gmail dashboard. Under labs, enable “Nested Labels” feature from there and “Save Changes” from the bottom of that page. Now go to the “Labels” tab of settings window where you can create labels. If you have already create a label in your Gmail account and want to create a child label for that then here is the procedure to do the same.

Procedure to Create Nested Labels

1. Parent Label: Create a high level label as per your choice. I created “PayPal” as high level label.

2. Now I want to label PayPal transaction from one of my client named “Jack Richard”. So I will create a label as “Paypal/Jack Richard”. This will create a nested label under PayPal label.
