There are two main options to automatically print badges at visitor's check in:
- From the kiosk app
- From the Dashboard
In this article, we will provide an overview of these options:
Printing from the kiosk
You can print via AirPrint, via Proxy (PC) or via SDK for selected Brother devices.
With any of these options, the badge will print automatically at the time that the visitor completed the check in via the kiosk.
Tip💡 You can place the printer next to the kiosk for a full self-service process.
When deciding wether to print via AirPrint vs. SDK for Brother printers, if it comes to quality and reliability, select the SDK Bluetooth option if available for your device.
Printing from the Dashboard
You can decide to print automatically when checking your visitors in on the Dashboard or to only print badges for selected visits.
This option is only available for laptops/PCs running Windows - at the moment, this option is not available for Apple Mac.
Tip 💡It is possible to run a Windows Virtual Machine on your Mac to make this option available
Printing from the Dashboard can be set up via our Wizard, see details here.
While it is possible to print with almost every printer from the Proxyclick apps, our recommended and reviewed printers can be found here.
