Label in configuration management is kind of bookmark on the elements. All current versions of the elements are marked with label which makes it easy to retrieve elements later based on the label.

e. g. if you have 10 documents in under source control with each having different versions & you have applies particular changes to them. When you apply label say “L1”it is applies on latest versions of all 10 documents. Later point of time few or all the element’s version may be incremented & you want to retrieve versions when those last changes were applied. This is possible by retrieving code for label “L1”
