The Parcel Reference Card (PRC) gives all the data you need to know about the parcel and in the New Assessor's Apprentice there are a couple new features.

  • PRC Button
    • With the drop down you have the ability to print a Blank of a Parcel Summary, Residential, and a Commercial page.
    • Print Preview has a lot of neat features built into it.

The Button is great if you need to find out the parcels related to the select parcel. When the button is clicked it will bring a new tab like the Compare button and compare the two parcel with the Parcel Quick View.

Paste Parcel List

If you have the Parcels in an Excel spreadsheet, select them in the spreadsheet and hit the “Copy To Clipboard” button in Excel (or control+c). Then go into CAMA, and on the parcel search screen, just hit the “Paste Parcel List” button.

Once you do that you should have just the list of parcels you had copied in your search results (Assuming you didn’t have any other search criteria entered).

To clear it, just click the “Clear” button in the green banner that pops up.
