Generate Mailing Labels - Datasheet The Generate Mailing Labels package contains custom links that allow a user to create mailing labels in a variety of Avery label formats from the contacts and leads associated with an account or campaign. After clicking on the Custom Link, a screen will be presented with areas al- lowing you to specify the source of the information, the label styles you want to generate, and the location for the result- ing files. Once completed, the user will be able to use the generated labels by viewing one of the saved documents using Microsoft Word. REQUIREMENTS The only setup requirement is that an administrator must modify the Page Layouts for the Account and Campaign objects to add the custom links. HOW IT WORKS The custom link calls the Generate Mailing Labels s-control. Once the page is displayed, the user selects their options and clicks on the “Generate” button. The s-control retrieves the requested data and uses it to generate the labels. The resulting labels are stored as either an attachment to the launching object, or as a document in a user slected folder. The s-control contains the information needed to create an XML version of the various Avery Style Templates. This is combined with the users data to create the file which is saved in Salesforce as a document of type “doc” (to indicate that it should be opened with Microsoft Word even though it’s an XML file). When the file is viewed, it is downloaded to your machine, and Microsoft Word is used to open the file. SECURITY No external servers are used, and your data is never sent anywhere. The only external reference in the s-con- trol is an Image tag to avery.com to display the style templates images. SUPPORT This is free and unsupported.
