In this article we will go over how to create and print out a visitor badge when checking in a visitor.
Visitor Badge Prerequisites
It is only possible to print a badge once the badge option has been activated on Visitors Settings menu by a supervisor.
The badge option needs to be activated per each category of Visitor and you can personalize the badge template per each category.
Printing a badge for Visitor is only possible via the POST license (computer certificate).
