You created Labels in Google Contacts and you are not able to share content to these Labels.

What products are affected?
Sharing in any Google Docs Editor (Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides, Google Forms)
Google Calendar
Google Groups
*Note: Contact Labels still work in Gmail

Will this be fixed?
Yes, we are actively working to resolve this issue and make Labels available in the products listed above.

Are there workaround options available in the meantime?
Yes, there are two workarounds available that involve using Gmail.

Option 1: Create a link and share the link using Gmail
  1. In the product from which you want to share or invite people, create a shareable link in Drive or through your Google Docs, Forms, Sheets, Slides file. Below is an example of creating a link in Forms:

  1. Copy the link
  2. Go to Gmail on the web, and compose an email
  3. In the ‘To’ bar, search for the Label you would like to share with (if you do not see the label, try refreshing your window)
  4. Select the Label and this will add the individual emails in the ‘To’ bar

Option 2: Copy the list of emails in a Label using Gmail
  1. Go to Gmail on a Desktop, and compose an email:

  1. Look up the Contact Label (if you do not see the label, try refreshing your window)

  1. Select the Label and this will add the individual emails in the ‘To’ bar

  1. Copy the email addresses from the ‘To’ bar. To Copy, place your cursor anywhere in the ‘To’ bar and press ⌘ + A on a Mac or Ctrl + A on Windows followed by ⌘ + C on a Mac or Ctrl + C on Windows.

  1. Paste the email addresses in the document you want to share. To paste the email addresses, place your cursor where you would look up the Label and press ⌘ + V on a Mac or Ctrl + V on Windows.
