Adding Items to a Label Queue in Millennium

You can add items to a label queue, print them in a batch then copy them to a review file to rapid/global update.
NOTE: An item record must be saved before an item can be added to the queue.

Item label queues are based upon login. Each time you queue an item label, that label will be added to your login's queue and will remain there until it is cleared from the queue by printing or when your session ends (logout or crash).

Check that you do not have Print Templates checked. Admin>Settings>Print Templates

You can queue item labels from the following places in Millennium:
  • Choose Tools>Queue Monographic Label to Print in the edit display of an item record. 
  • Choose Tools>Queue Monographic Label to Print in the summary display of item records. Can add one item record or multiple item records.
  • Select the Queue Monographic Labels radio button in the New Item Report dialog after you have created multiple item records. 
To view and/or delete what is in your Print Queue, from either an item record or summary screen: Tools>View Spine Label Queue.

Once created, can use label queues to create review files in Create Lists (see below).
