I especially like @bimo's method - I am looking now to build that in to my process - thanks Michael for sharing that excellent approach.
Michael's outlined workflow is a great resource.
One addition that may be helpful for you. When you create such "workflow labels" then you can also consider defining a keyboard shortcut to these catalog labels. That way you can quickly "assign" these workflow label by pressing a keyboard combination.

Two more hints may be useful:
  1. The workflow labels ("? Top Level Label" and "[without Top Level Label]" as well as any further workflow item you might find helpful) should be classified as "The label is private (Catalog only)". That means that these workflow labels are not synchronised to the image file.
  2. For ease of use I recommend working with a label set to initialize the complete workflow with a single strike. If each and every "? Top Level Label" is part of this set you only have to assign the whole set to all images at the time of importing and the workflow for your whole catalog will be ready to go!

Thanks Hert, that's excellent - I had thought that would be a great idea but hadn't realised it was actually possible!! :oops: :D
