Seiko Labels from CRM?Posted on April 8th, 2009 No comments
One of the members of my group was looking for a way to print a label for a contact from CRM to his Seiko Smart Label Printer. I told him unfortunatley there was no single click button like in Outlook, even with the Outlook client loaded, the Smart Capture sees no data. I told him I had a work around and in putting together a small how to for him, it seemed like a good thing to share here and maybe someone will reply with a more elegant solution (are you out there Anne?).
What we did was to create a Word mail merge document and save it. Then you highlight the contact you want a label for and open the saved merge doc and merge it and then hit the Seiko icon in Word to print the label I used this label which is close to the SPL-2RL we use.
Then when ever you need a label just highlight the contact in CRM and click Actions, Mail Merge, and New Document from Existing Document
So like I said it is not the most elegant solution, but it does beat typing out each label.
Maybe one of these days Seiko will give us a button like the one in Word.
