If you want to create a child label create it with name ParentLabel/ChildLabel
For example, let’s say you wanted to create a simple hierarchy with a "Home" label, and inside it a "Family" and a "Vacation" label. Just create three labels with the following names:
You can then create "Home/Family/Kids," "Home/Pets," etc., to get something like the screenshot on the left. If you had the parent label "Home" before you don’t have to create it from scratch.
