Hi Shel.  I found Gmail labels useful when I was helping to manage the
email list for our local school parent association.

Once you’ve created a contact in contacts.google.com, double-click it.
Then click on the 3 vertical dots in the upper right of the contact
window.  You’ll see a dropdown list of the available labels that you
can check or uncheck to assign or unassign them to the contact. (Use
"Create Label" in the left nav bar if you need a new label to show up
in the list).

The edits should auto-save and the updated label should be available
the next time you open Gmail.

I played around in contacts.google.com and made the changes, but there is no save button and they are not reflected when I try to set up an email. Advice most gratefully accepted.
