2.2 Sample labeling

Printing of sample identification tags is also possible in ERPNext. By default a print format called "Sample ID Print" is made available, but you can always customize this directly using the Print Format Builder or even create a custom Print Format if required. The number of labels required has to be set in the "No. of prints" field in the Sample Collection document. Accordingly, those many labels will be generated in the print view.
