Question: When should I use labels?

Answer

Use labels to group a set of files and folders together for future operations. You can use labels for branching, merging, diffing, or getting files. A label provides a marker to which you can return when performing one of the above operations at a later date.

Team Foundation Build automatically labels the file versions associated with each build that it creates.

Note: If you are unsure whether or not you need a branch, you can label a set of files and later create a branch based on this label.
