After 10 years at Google I had accumulated a lot of labels in Gmail, most of them unused for years. Managing them in the UI was too tedious, so I put together a Sheet + Apps Script to allow me to manage them in bulk. Now you can too! https://t.co/YTLVNFgbKd pic.twitter.com/p0NX8hJpRe

Use this spreadsheet to manage your Gmail labels in bulk! To get started, follow the steps below:
- Make a copy of this spreadsheet.
- Wait a few moments for the “Bulk Labels” menu to appear.
- Click “Bulk Labels > Pull labels”.
- When prompted, grant the script authorization to your account.
You can then use the spreadsheet to create, rename, and delete labels. You can also merge labels, which deletes a label but also moves all of it’s messages to another label.
When ready, click “Bulk Labels > Perform actions” to make the updates.
