Adding Member profiles to the Badge Maker allows you to make multiple ID Cards simply and quicker than ever. The Badge Maker is not just an ID Design Software, it's a tool developed to simplify making ID cards for you and your organization.
With Smart Text and Variable Image Fields in your ID Design Template, the Badge Maker will automatically create ID Cards for each Member Profile you add when you're ready to order them!
You can add Members either Individually, in bulk with a spreadsheet, or by integrating your other software's with the Badge Maker.
Adding Members Individually
- Login to your Account and click the "My Members" tab near the top of the page to bring you to the Members section of the Badge Maker. This is where you'll be able to manage and add all of your Member profiles.
- Click "Add a Member" on the left side of your screen to add members individually.
- You'll now be on the Add Member screen and can begin adding personalized information for a Member of your organization that will need to be on their ID Card.
- Add their Name, Headshot, Role, Employee ID #, and any other relevant information.
- Once you've entered all of their information, click "Save & Add New" to save their Profile and continue creating Member Profiles as needed.
Add Members in Bulk
- Within the "My Members" section of the Badge Maker, click "Upload Member" on the left side of the screen.
- Once you're on the "Upload Member" page, you'll see a detailed table of instructions that you'll need to complete (shown below) and the spreadsheet template to add Member information.
- Download the blank template by clicking the button below and open the file with the text editor of your choice. We recommend using a spreadsheet editor such as Microsoft Excel.
- Add data into the fields (Columns) which you may want to use on an ID Badge. The First Name field is required, each of the other fields can be left blank and the columns can be deleted if desired. For images enter the file name with the file type at the end (.jpg, .png, etc.).
- Save your template as a Tab Delimited Text file and upload it below. Each row will be a new member after uploading.
- Put the images you want to include in a zipped folder and upload the folder below.
- Click next to verify your information. You can still edit information if you see any mistakes.
- Once you've completed the steps above, you'll be asked to verify the text uploaded in the spreadsheet.
- You'll then need to validate the Zipped Folder with all of the necessary images to make sure the Badge Maker will be adding the images correctly to each Member profile.
- The final step will be to proof the information to make sure everything is right, so the Badge Maker can make all of the ID Cards for you!
