Print Avery Labels
The Print Avery Labels screen allows users to print Avery mailing labels (size #5160), shipping labels (size #5163), and file folder labels (size #5366).
1. From the Users menu, click Print Avery Labels.
This navigates to the Print Avery Labels screen, where a Find a User module displays.
2. If searching for specific users by name or employee identification number, type the information directly into the User text box.
To generate labels for all users, leave the User text box empty or click the User List tab.
3. For a more advanced search and the ability to define a specific subset of users, click the More Search Options link. In the example shown, the Teacher Profile has been selected; therefore, labels will be generated only for teachers only.
4. You may have the option to Search All Schools by selecting the corresponding check box. If this option is not selected (or available), users will only pull from the school selected via the school pull-down, located in the header of the screen.
When you search all schools, and select a user, the user's primary school is selected from the Schools pull-down located in the header automatically.
5. Select the Include Inactive Users check box to include inactive users that meet the selected search criteria along with the active users.
6. Select the Only Show Most Recent Enrollment check box for the most recent enrollment determined by start date, then end date, and finally by user_enrollment id. When this option is selected:
- A new user with no profiles assigned (enrolled) at all displays as “Invalid Profile” or not at all because there is no enrollment to show.
- If a user has multiple profiles at one school, it will return the most recent enrollment at that school (there will be one record row for that user).
- If a user has profiles at multiple schools, it will return the most recent enrollment at each school (there will be one record row for that user at each school).
7. When the Find a User search criteria and/or More Search Options have been defined, click Search to go on to the next page. If needed, you can click Reset to clear everything on the page and start over.
Clicking Search will generate a list of users for whom you can generate and print labels.

Multiple logging fields can be added to a custom label. Selected fields will appear in the text editor, and will fill as user-specific information when the labels are printed.
10. Click on the Source button for CSS/HTML embedding.
11. At the bottom of the word processing box, you will see a description of each entered section. Clicking on any of them will highlight the corresponding section. For example, if you click on body, all of the text entered will be selected. Or, clicking on h1, will select the heading entered.
2. Select the Starting row and the Starting column from the pull-downs to indicate where on the sheet of labels Focus should begin printing labels. This feature makes it easier when reusing a single sheet of labels. For a brand new sheet of labels, the Starting row and column would be 1.
3. Before selecting the users and generating the labels, you must also select a Label Type from the provided pull-down. The options available include Avery 5160 (mailing labels), Avery 5163 (shipping labels), and Avery 5366 (file folder labels).
Based on your search on the previous screen, you will have a list of users displayed via the User List.

If you want to print labels for all users displayed, select the check box in the header.
5. When all selections have been made, click the Create Labels for Selected Users button.
Upon creating labels, a print preview will display so you can review the information and the layout of the labels before printing. In the image shown, the Starting row was set to 3; therefore, the first two rows are blank.
