How do I create a badge?
To start designing a badge, click on the Create new badge button. You can create as many badges as you require; for different delegate types, different ticket holders or based on a different language.
How do I change the size of the badge template?
To change the size of the badge template, simply change the dimensions (width and height) in millimeters. The template size defaults to A4 (210 mm x 297 mm) by default as this is the easiest size to print with a regular printer. Once an A4 paper is folded into four, it transforms to an A6-sized badge which is a typical size for conferences and events.
How do I upload a background image?
Click on the Upload new image button. Please make sure that the background image is proportional to the size of the badge template. For example, we recommend uploading an image of 1356 pixels x 1920 pixels as background image for an A4-sized template.
What are the different filters available for badge generation?
These are the different filters available to generate badges:
By attendee selected language: this is to generate badges based on which language the attendees have used to register themselves. This is only applicable if you have activated more than one language within the event.
By type of delegate: this filter is used to generate badges according to specific delegate categories. For example, if you want to generate only the exhibitors' badges, then you would apply the "Exhibitor" filter. This is only applicable if you have activated delegate categories within the event.
By type of ticket: this filter is used to generate badges according to the specific tickets that the attendees have purchased/used upon registration. For example, if you want to generate badges for attendees who purchased the "Early Bird Ticket," you would apply the said filter. This is only applicable if you have a ticketed event.
What attendee data can I add on the badges?
Profile data: these are the main registration fields including the name, company, role or email address
