The following options are available:

Uploading a new report

If Soutron provides you with a report with a different layout but the same data as an existing label report, you can upload the report so that it will be included in the list of available reports.

Click Create in the Actions menu, to display the following screen:



Enter the following information (required fields have an asterisk next to the label):


Name *Name of the label, such as the label provider and code, for example Avery L7162
Description *Description for the label. This is what you will see when you run the labels, so enter a meaningful description, such as Shelf Reference label
ActiveTick if the label is to be active; leave un-ticked if not
DefaultTick of the label is to be the default, ie the label that appears when you open the Print report screen. Only one report can be assigned as the default.
