Step 4: Map data fields
Once you have set up your label template in Google Docs, the next step is to map the data fields in your Google Sheets document to the corresponding label elements. Mapping the fields ensures that the information is correctly positioned on the label when you print it.
To begin mapping the data fields, open your Google Sheets document and select the “Add-ons” menu at the top of the screen. From the dropdown menu, choose “Avery Label Merge” and then click on “Start Mail Merge.”
A sidebar will appear on the right-hand side of your Google Sheets document. This sidebar contains options for configuring the mail merge. Click on the “Address Block” option in the sidebar to map the address fields.
In the “Address Block” settings, you will find a drop-down menu that allows you to choose the format for your address labels. Select the appropriate format based on the design of your label template. You can also customize the address block by selecting or deselecting specific fields.
Next, you need to map the remaining data fields in your Google Sheets document to the corresponding label elements. To do this, click on the “Customize” button in the sidebar. A pop-up window will appear, displaying all the available fields in your Google Sheets document.
Drag and drop the fields from the pop-up window onto the corresponding label elements in your template. You can position the fields precisely by aligning them with the placeholders on the label. This step ensures that the information from your Google Sheets document will be accurately printed onto the label.
Once you have mapped all the data fields, review your label template to ensure that everything is correctly aligned. Make any necessary adjustments by dragging the fields to their desired positions.
After mapping the data fields, you can save the configuration for future use. This will allow you to skip mapping the fields again if you need to print labels using the same template and data.
When you are satisfied with the mapping and alignment, you are ready to move on to the final step: printing your address labels from Google Sheets. With your label template configured and the data fields mapped, the printing process becomes a breeze. Just make sure you have enough label sheets and a printer connected to your computer.
Now that you know how to map data fields in Google Sheets to ensure accurate and perfectly aligned address labels, you can streamline your label printing process. Printing labels directly from Google Sheets saves time and effort, allowing you to quickly generate professional-looking address labels for any purpose.
