I think i must be missing something simple and have not been successful searching for a solution.  I am mapping about 80 points throughout my county.  Some of the points are very close together.  I wish to display all points regardless of scale.  My issue is i cannot seem to figure out how to disperse the labels so they do not overlap (see the image below).  What am I missing?  Is there a function to help me disperse the labels?

Running ArcGIS Pro 2.7.0

Label with the Maplex Label Engine—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation 

might give you more control over the conflict resolution.

thanks for the reply, DavidPike.  I've spent quite a bit of time over the last couple days working through the conflict resolution options offered by the Maplex Label Engine.  I feel feature weights and key numbering have the most potential but neither gave be quite the outcome i was looking for.  I still have labels overlapping each other.  I see there is a marker disperse function but I'm hesitant to use it because i don't mind if the markers are overlapping...i just don't want their labels to overlap.
