Eliminate extranneous shipping labels for multi-piece loan transactions
For Lending Loan Shipping Labels, and Borrowing Return Shipping Labels, we only need ONE shipping label per transaction. As is, if we ship a 4-volume set under one transaction number, we get 4 shipping labels. This means that each time we print, we either have to discard extra labels, or take the time to delete the extra labels from the print document.

At ERE, we got around this by including both the shipping and return labels on the Lending pull slips, and return labels on the Borrowing slips. So in Lending we have everything we need on the pull slip before the number of pieces is even entered, and for Borrowing items we just cut the return label off the paperwork when it's ready to go back. It also has the added benefit of totally bypassing the step of separately printing return labels and matching them up, which saves time and prevents mistakes. We don't mind sharing our templates if you're interested.

I posted this on the ILL FB group. Here are some comments: "I no longer work with ILLiad, but I do remember what a pain that was! Voted"
"I agree. Now we have to closed the merged document, go to the template location to open it, edit recipients to eliminate multiple addresses to be printed."
