How to setup a trigger that reads and writes the card serial number from a card to your project.
 

Step 1. Open your project

 
Open an existing project with card designs and data.

 

Step 2. Create an extra column for the card serial number

 
Add an extra column to your project. BadgeMaker Identity can read the serial number of the printed card and write to the record in that column.
 
Go to “Edit” in the main menu and go to “Project Settings” and click on “Project Structure”. Click on “Add new property” and name this text data column: Card Serial Number.
