Barcode Labels

For Temporary Cards and Admin Access Cards, And Items/Assets that are checked out, or for Tracking Items

From the left toolbar go to

Tools > Generate Barcodes

On this page you can generate PDF documents with printable barcode labels (compatible with Avery 5160/8160 Address Labels). Once generated, PDF documents will remain available for download for 60 days from the “Files” page (Reports > Files).


These Barcode Labels can be used for your temporary cards for visitors, and also for your Workers and Volunteers who have authorization to use the Menu Access code and enter new people during check-ins and check-outs. Barcodes are also great for adhering to check-out items or items that move often between rooms/locations so that you can track who has it or where it is!

When making your temporary and paper cards you do not need to follow the strict artwork specifications and guidelines as when having your cards and barcodes printed for long-time use.

Using Avery 5160/8160 labels, you can print up to 30 barcode stickers on each page, which can be adhered to your temporary cards, which can be plastic cards or paper; assets, etc.

  1. Choose where to generate your barcodes from on the drop-down menu:
  2. If "Menu Access" or "Temporary Cards" was chosen, select how many to generate from the drop-down menu
  3. If choose Custom, you will be taken to next page to enter the first and last number in the barcode range you wish to generate. Please note: A maximum of 120 barcodes can be generated at once.

When entering a Card Number by hand, you only need to enter the 12 to 13-digit number which is printed on the card (12 digit number for temporary cards). However, entering a card number by hand may limit certain card features. Additionally, cards used at other locations must always be scanned for security purposes.
