How to Use Badge Designer For Your Onsite Events

 

 

 

 

Badge designer allows for the creation of printed name badges through connected printers at registration desks or kiosks. At least one badge design must be prepared to print attendee badge cards.

To view badge designs or create a new badge design, click on the "Badge Designer" menu under the "Onsite & Tools" section in the left menu.

 

 

 

Click the “Create badge design” button in the upper right corner of the screen.

 

 

On the screen that opens, give a name to your badge design; then add the variables.

Variables allow for the printing of data that matches the registration information of the attendees. For example, the name and surname information of the attendee is printed for the section labeled "%participant.fullName%".

You can add a background by clicking the "Add background" button for positioning or printing.

 

There are three options under the "Settings" tab. When the "Show" option is turned off, the relevant design will not be displayed on the screen for printing the badge for the attendee. When the "Print background" option is activated, if a background has been added to the design, the entire design is sent to the printer with the added background. If it is turned off, the background will not be sent to the printer and will only be used for alignment. The "Text customization" option determines how the text corresponding to the variables to be printed on the badge will be displayed. If the data in the system is not in a certain order, customization can be done for a regular view.

NOTE: The "Holacon Printer Utility" software must be installed on the relevant computer for badge printing. You can visit the downloads page to obtain the software.
