Import Barcodes

Overview: Importing barcodes allows you to bulk add barcodes used for check in scanning. 

To Import Barcodes

  1. Navigate to the "Account Settings" (mceclip3.png)
  2. Choose "Bulk Tasks" 
  3. Select "More" (on the left side). 
  4. Choose "Import Barcodes" (on the left).
  5. Download the template file and populate it with the barcodes numbers (leave the first 3 columns as-is).
  6. Import the revised file using the "Import Barcodes" file button. Use the key below for determining how to populate the data.

Breeze will automatically populate the template with each person's Breeze ID, First Name, Last Name, and any already-existing barcodes. 

Understanding Fields on the File

Examples

Breeze ID
If a person is not in the database, add them. If there’s a large number of people not in the database, bulk import them. Be sure that the person is not in the database with a slightly different name as creating them as a new person will create a duplicate person. If duplicates are created, they can be merged (individually).

First Name
Technically speaking, the first name field is ignored by the import (the Breeze ID is the only identifier used). The first name field is for the benefit of the person constructing the import file.
String (optional)

Last Name
Technically speaking, the last name field is ignored by the import (the Breeze ID is the only identifier used). The last name field is for the benefit of the person constructing the import file.

  • Hello, if we mass import bar codes how can we assign them to a child/family? Also, when scanning a barcode with family checkin enabled will it automatically check that one person in or will it cause the entire family to pop up so you can select those present?

  • Hey @CamilaPino!
     
    You asked a great question! When you mass import barcodes you will assign barcodes to people on the import template itself! To the left of the barcode number will be the first and last name of the person associated with that barcode. Both adults and children will be assigned this way!
     
     
    At this time, Breeze does not currently support the ability for more than one person to have the same barcode (i.e. a family barcode). I sincerely apologize for this limitation! I know that may be a little frustrating. While this is the case, the "Family Check-In" enabled option will still work as expected when using a barcode. For example, if you scan the father's barcode, it will pull up each family member to check-in as long as the "Family Check-In" option is enabled and they are connected within the "Family" section under people. :)

    I hope this is helpful. Have a great day!
