Open your eyes to how smooth check-in can be by including barcodes in your next event. With a single beep, admission is validated, attendance tracked, and you retrieve a lead. Using Cvent, barcodes can be added to name badges, displayed on the My Registration page, and even printed from a registrant's inbox.

Creating a Custom Barcode

1 Access the Barcodes & QR Codes page. If the standard barcodes don't contain the details you want to collect, consider personalizing your own. Though, keep in mind, you can only create one custom barcode per event.

Begin by selecting your event. Hover over Website & Registration and, under Onsite, click Barcodes and Passes. The Apple Wallet Passes tab opens by default. Click the neighboring tab, Barcodes & QR Codes.

Click Custom Barcode, then Edit.

2 Enter the barcode details. Feel free to rename the barcode.

In the Format section, determine which barcode you'll use. You'll be able to change this whenever necessary, but it's best to check your scanner to see which type of barcode it can scan. Your options include:
 
  • PDF417 - Allows you to add multiple fields to your barcode by moving them to the Selected box, along with using the Delimiter dropdown to choose the character that will separate each field.
  • CODE39 - Limits you to only selecting one field from the Encoded Field dropdown.

Adding Barcodes to Name Badges

1 Access the page. Begin by selecting your event. Hover over Website & Registration and, under Onsite, click Badges & Certificates.

2 Add a barcode. Create a name badge. When designing the badge, make sure to add the barcode by clicking and dragging Barcode, under Components, onto the canvas.

Select the barcode. Your options include:
  • Company - A PDF417 barcode that contains the registrant's place of employment.
  • Confirmation Number - A code 39 barcode that contains the registrant's confirmation number.
 
NOTE: This barcode can be added to any email template by inserting the {[C-BARCODE]} data tag. For a Flex event, you can add the Barcodes widget onto the email template.
 
  • Contact Info. & Conf. No. - Caret (^) Delimited - A PDF417 barcode that contains the registrant's confirmation number, name, email, company, address, and phone number. A caret (^) separates each of these fields.
  • Contact Info. & Conf. No. - Non-Delimited - A PDF417 barcode that contains the registrant's confirmation number, name, email, company, address, and phone number. A single space separates each of these fields.
  • Source ID - A PDF417 that contains the registrant's source ID.
  • Custom Barcode - barcode in which you can customize the delimiter and the fields it contains.
 
Once you're done, click Finish.
