Labels with Microsoft People's app data
Barcode & Label supports the printing of labels with data stored in Microsoft People's app. The process involves creating text or barcode objects, linking them to fields in the People's app, and selecting contacts to be printed. When a label is printed, Barcode & Label prefill the objects with the People's app data.
The following fields from Microsoft People's app are supported:

Step-by-step Tutorial1. Launch Barcode & Label. In the label designer, click on the Text ("aA") icon in the bottom app bar. Drag your mouse (or finger) on the label canvas to create a text object. Double click on the text object, and in the "Type" field, select "Contact: Name". This link the text object with the Contact Name field in Microsoft People's app. The screenshot below illustrates how to do this.
You can repeat this step to create text objects for the contact's Work Address Street, Work Address City, Work Address State, and Work Address Country.
2. With the text objects set up, we can set up the list of contacts from People's app to print. Click on the Import Contacts button from the top Ellipsis.
The Import Contacts flyout will be launched. This flyout enables you to clear or import contacts from Microsoft People's app.
3. Click on the Import button to select contacts from Microsoft People's app.
4. When the selection is completed, click on the Print button, the names of the contacts will be automatically populated in the labels.
Setting up a Label with Microsoft People's app data involves two essential steps: adding objects that reference Contact fields and importing contacts from Microsoft People's app.
Printing a label with Microsoft People's app data requires careful considerations. For example, if you have a page with 15 labels and have selected only 5 contacts, the remaining 10 will be left blank and unutilized. It is possible to replicate the 5 labels to the rest of the page to avoid wastage of labels. You will need to adjust the "No. of Labels" option on the Preview page. If you set "No. of Labels" to 15, the data from the 5 contacts will be repeated 3 times to fill up all the labels on the page.
Alternatively, you can print only 5 labels and leave the remaining 10 labels unused. In the future, you can feed this partially printed label stock back to the printer and specify the Start Position as 6 in Preview to start printing from the sixth label. This will allow you to utilize the unused labels.
