Have you ever needed to generate mailing labels from multiple parcel IDs? In this tutorial, we will walk you through the process of exporting and printing mailing labels using the Manatee County Property Appraiser’s mailing labels widget. This tool allows you to easily create mailing labels for your property parcels. Follow along as we explain each step in detail.

Before we begin, it’s important to note that addresses exempt from public disclosure are excluded from the results, as per Chapter 119 of the Florida Statutes.

Step 1: Adding Parcels to the Mailing Labels Widget

To start, let’s add our first parcel to the mailing labels widget. Instead of manually entering the parcel ID, we will use a shortcut to locate the parcel on the map. Simply click on the parcel you want to add, and an information pop-up will appear.

Step 2: Buffering the Parcel

In the information pop-up, click on the “Buffer Parcel” option from the action menu. This will immediately buffer the parcel and add it to the mailing labels widget. The selected parcel will also be highlighted on the map for reference.

Step 3: Creating an Offset

Next, we will use the distance slider to create an offset of 150 feet from the selected parcel. Adjust the slider until you reach the desired distance. The buffer results panel will show the parcels that have been buffered at the specified distance, including the subject property.

Step 4: Adding Multiple Parcels

To add another parcel, simply click on it on the map and choose the “Buffer Parcel” option from the pop-up menu. The second parcel will be added to the buffer results panel and buffered at the same distance set on the slider. You can continue to add as many parcels as you need, up to a maximum of 15.

Step 5: Adjusting Distance Settings

If you want to change the distance setting for a specific parcel, simply modify the slider value for that parcel. Please note that any modifications made to the distance setting will only impact the selected parcel and will not affect other parcels that have already been chosen.

Step 6: Managing Buffer Results

The buffer results panel displays the data for each buffered parcel in collapsible accordions. When an accordion is open, the highlighted parcels on the map belong to that accordion. If you want to remove a parcel from the buffer results, simply click on the trash icon inside the accordion.

Step 7: Adding Parcels via Parcel ID

In addition to clicking on the map, you can also add parcels to the buffer results panel by entering the parcel number in the “Search by Parcel ID” input. This method will yield the same results as clicking on the map and choosing “Buffer Parcel” from the pop-up menu.

Step 8: Exporting Buffer Results

Once you have added all the desired parcels to the buffer results panel, you can export the results to a PDF file. This file can then be used to print mailing labels on any Avery 5160 compatible labels. Simply click on the “Export” button, and the PDF will be generated.
