Creating a Label file in D365 Finance & Operations

To create the label file, follow these steps:

1. Right-click on the project and select Add | New item... or use the keyboard
shortcut, Ctrl + Shift + A.

2. Choose Labels and Resources from the Operations Artifacts list.

3. From the list on the left, select Label File.

4. In the Name field, enter a short, but unique label name “Your Own Label Name”

5. Press Add.

6. In the Label file wizard, leave Label file ID as default.

It seems that we can specify a different name in this step, but the
previous only called this wizard with a suggested file name. The Label
file ID field contains both the ID and the file name that will be created.

7. Press Next.

8. In the language selection, move the languages from the left-hand list into the
right-hand list using the buttons. Only leave languages selected that you will
maintain. This involves creating a label in each language file.
This also applies to language with subtle differences, such as English
and Spanish. Even though the label will often be the same, we still
need to manually maintain each language file. Currently this also
means we have to be careful to ensure we give them the correct ID.

9. Press Next.

10. Check that the Summary page is correct, and press Finish.
