Passes & Pass Configuration

Pass Types

There are five types of passes:

  • Attendance Check-In Pass
  • Bus Pass
  • Conference Pass
  • Non-specified Student Data Pass
  • Transportation Services Request (Pass)

Pass Configuration

There are two parts to configuring a pass:

  1. Creating the Pass Template that is used to create the physical pass.
  2. Configuring where are how to use the Template.  There are multiple places in the system where a "pass template" must be specified

Pass Templates

Passes Templates are defined on the Setup→Schools→School Parameters→Passes screen:

Pass Template Components

Each Pass Template consists of three items:

  • The PDF form on which the pass will be printed.
  • The set of Macros to be printed on the form and their specific X, Y locations.
  • The "Usage" flags specifying how the template is to be used.

The PDF form

This is simply a single-sheet PDF document.   Genesis does not look for any additional structure in the PDF itself:  the macros can be printed at any X, Y location on the PDF.

The PDF Form is uploaded into a Pass Templates on the the Setup→Schools→School Parameters→Passes→Modify screen (show below - the same screen on which the macros are specified).

The Macro List with X, Y Positions

The information to print on the Pass' PDF is specified by the list of "Field Macros"-that appear on the Setup→Schools→School Parameters→Passes→Modify Pass screen:
