Groups - Groups help you better manage team member access to your photos, videos, and Instagram accounts within Later. Each group contains it's own media library so you don’t have to share your photos and videos with all your social profiles and team members. Only available for paid plans.

Labels - Labels are tags or keywords which can be added to your media items to better organize your photos/videos by social profile, style, campaign, photographer etc. Multiple labels can be added in order to make your media items easily searchable during the scheduling process. Use multiple labels to distinguish between your media items; that way you can begin to limit your media search to only those that include all the labels entered in your search. *Labels are currently only available from Later on the web.
