Implementing and Applying CiviCRM Name Badges

Speaker(s): 
Description: 

Out of the box, CiviCRM provides powerful tools for generating name badges for event participants. This session explores how you can leverage these tools to create name badges that present a professional impression while providing useful functionality that integrates back into the CiviCRM platform.

We'll examine how to extend beyond the included basic badge design to include multiple barcodes (including 2-dimensional QR-codes), enhanced fonts, 2-sided printing, and changing the orientation of content on a page.

Having barcodes on name badges is only reasonable if the barcodes can be scanned and applied back to the CiviCRM application. We'll demonstrate using pre-printed badges with barcodes to ease event check-in, and how QR-Codes can be used to quickly perform session validation on mobile devices using a standard off-the-shelf app.
