Step 1: Log in to your IDMS account and click “Edit Template” under the card template name you’d like to add a barcode.
Step 2: Click the “Barcode” tab at the top of the page.
Step 3: Enable the “Add Barcode” feature to display a barcode on the ID cards.
Once you enable the “Add Barcode” feature, you have two options to set up your barcode:
Option 1: If you’d like to auto-generate a barcode value, enable the “Auto Generate Barcode” option. You can select the barcode type that’s compatible with your barcode scanning device. Then, select the “Auto Generate Value” feature, and select the type and length that the auto-generated barcode will be. You also have the option to show the barcode value on the ID card. To enable this, switch on the “Show Barcode Value” feature.
Option 2: If you’d like to choose the barcode value for your ID cards, switch off the “Auto Generate Barcode” feature. Then, select the barcode type that’s compatible with your barcode scanning device. Next, choose whether the expected barcode value data type is alphanumeric or numeric. Lastly, decide where the data for the barcode value will be coming from in the “Barcode Value Data Source” feature. The barcode value can be a fixed value that appears the same on every card, an imported value, or submitted by the cardholder in the app. You also have the option to show the barcode value on the ID card. To enable this, switch on the “Show Barcode Value” feature. Click on the ‘Save’ button at the top right corner.
