Adding a barcode to your design

Suppose you'd like to add a barcode to your design. You can do it simply by following this video below. 

The barcode on your plastic card allows you to store and read different data electronically. With employee cards, the barcode identifies the employee and links personal data with individual employee behaviour information. This data is stored centrally and can be used for different evaluations. For example. You can restrict certain employees from certain places because their barcode will not allow them into that area. 

How to connect your database to ID works

If you have a lot of employees or students, it can be tiresome to submit new information and print a card for every person. Instead, using a database is much quicker as you can print your cards as a batch and not individually.
