To use this feature, you need to set up a user as a Print Queue and have a station (connected to your Dymo label printer) logged in as this user. Here are some details on setting this up:
Print Queue User
If you are using Mobile CheckIn and want to have name tag and parent tags created, you’ll need to set up a “print queue” user. Once you’ve created the username and password, you’ll need to define the following parameter:
Default Campus - If system preferences are set to allow multiple campuses, each check in user can have a default campus defined. This means that the user will only be able
to check into groups/classes/services that are from that campus. For example, if the check in user has a default campus “Southside”, they will only see groups that also have Southside as the campus.
Name Tags & Parent Tags
Use the “tags” section to set your preferences for printing name tags and parent tags. Once you hit next from the check in user screen, you will be asked if you want to print name tags upon check in. If you do, click Yes. Click NEXT
Next, you’ll be asked which size you’d like to use. We have 2 standard sizes. The 30256 is the larger shipping size label. The 30334 is a smaller multi-purpose label. If you’d like to use a different size label, or customize the information that is printed on the label, choose the customize option. This will take you to the form to create your label. For detailed instructions on customizing the name tags, see the next chapter on Customizing Name Tags and Parent Tags.
The next window asks if you’d like to print a parent tag for children. The parent tag lists only the security number that matches the child’s name tag. Parent tags are only printed for people in the database whose family position is Child.
Also on the screen you may indicate the number you’d like to use as the security number on the name tag and the parent tag. You may choose from the family number, a random security number that uses numbers and characters or a random security number that is strictly numbers. Click NEXT.
From the next window, select the information you’d like printed on the child’s name tag.
Logo –if you are using the 30256 size labels, you can print a ministry logo in the upper left of the label. You don’t want this logo to be a super high resolution logo or it will take a long time to print.
Barcode – some churches print the barcode on the label itself for easy check out.
Security number - choose the security number you’d like printed on the child’s name tag. The badge number is not allowed if you will be printing parent tags. The badge number uniquely identifies the child. The family number is a number assigned to the family in roll call. The random security number is randomly determined by the system. The random number will change from week to week. The badge number and family number will not change from week to week.
Allergies – any allergies listed in the “Special Needs” comment section will be displayed on the name tag if this is checked.
Last Name same size as First – By default the first name is in a larger font that the last name. If you’d like them to be the same size, check this box.
Session Time or Check In Time - You can choose to include the the group start time or the actual time that they checked in.
When you’ve checked the options you’d like for the name tag, click NEXT to choose a logo for Youth and Adult name tags. The youth and adult name tags will only include their name, the date of the event and the group they are checking into. There is no security number, barcode or allergy information printed on an Adult tag.
To add a logo for the Youth/Adult tag, click the box for logo. Click the ADD IMAGE button and navigate to that image file. Click NEXT to continue through the check in set up process.
At this point you may want to install your Dymo printer and run a test label to make sure everything looks okay. Once you have the printer installed, click on the PRINT TEST button. If everything prints okay, click NEXT to continue through the set up process.
