Event Attendance - How to Use a Card Scanner

This tutorial shows how to use a card scanner.

This document will walk you through using a card scanner to take attendance. 

1.) Navigate to the event you want to take attendance for. You can either create a new event or choose an existing event. For more information on that, look at these tutorials: 


2.) Plug in the card scanner to the computer. If you have a Mac, a pop-up will appear trying to set up a keyboard. Just exit out of this pop-up. If the pop-up doesn't appear then just continue to the next step.



3.) On your event page, click on the red 'Advanced Options' button near the top of the page.



4.) From the drop down menu, click the green 'Enable Card Scanner' button.



5.)  You can now start scanning i-cards to take attendance. You should see the netIDs appear under 'Event Attendees' with a green checkmark on the right side. 



6.) If at any point you want to stop using the card scanner, click on 'Advanced Options' and then the gray 'Disable Card Scanner' button.
