Versioning and branches within Flare

I'm starting to learn about creating versions and managing branches with source-control, and I'd like to apply some of these concepts within Flare. But so far, I can't quite suss out how to do the following:

    Tagging my project and content files as a specific version
    Creating a branch for maintenance updates of older documentation versions

Are these actions I can do in Flare, or do I need to do them in MSTFS (our source code repository)?

We use Team Foundation Server source control.

The short answer...use Team Explorer(Visual Studio), to label, branch your code. Not in Madcap Flare/Blaze.

May i also recommend you to use this plugin (Team Foundation Sidekicks)
if you are not already using it,

Recommended use even by Microsoft TF evangelists to circumvent limitations with v1.0

Enhances how TFS 1.0 shows labelled/history items. If you had used Visual Source Safe 6.0d/2005 to show history/labels before you'll know what i mean.
