Pass Printing on Turnstile Checkout

It is possible to display a printable pass when a student checks out of a Turnstile Event.  

To display a pass, you must configure Pass Display on the Turnstile>Setup screen when you setup a login/Event pairing.  

A pass must display both a Location (e.g. "Guidance") and a Reason (e.g. "Grades").  

These are chosen during Turnstile setup and do not vary for individual students.

To enable pass printing do the following:

  1. Go to the Turnstile>Setup screen.  Setup the event use as normal.
  2. Locate the "Display pass upon checkout" option. Select the pass you'd like to display for this event her:
  3. Select a Location.  The location you choose will appear on each pass displayed when students checkout of the event being configured.
  4. Select a Reason.   The reason you choose will appear on each pass displayed when students checkout of the event being configured.
  5. Select a time limit, if applicable.
  6. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and click the  button to store your choices.

Configure Pass Reasons and Locations

When a pass is displayed it must contain a "Location" field and a "Reason" field.  

Options for these fields are configured in two separate Codes tables.

Pass Reasons, Locations and the APPOINTMENT_REASONS and APPOINTMENT_LOCATIONS Codes Tables

The APPOINTMENT_LOCATIONS Codes table doubles as the source of options for Pass Locations.  

The APPOINTMENT_REASONS codes table doubles as the Pass Reasons table.  

To configure Reasons and Locations, do the following:

  1. Go to the Setup>Codes screen.
  2. Locate the APPOINTMENT_REASONS or APPOINTMENT_LOCATIONS table and click on the P icon to edit the table's contents.  
    This will display the existing set of codes in the table:
  3. To add new codes, locate the "Add New Code" button.
  4. Enter a Code. Typically the code is in upper case.  It cannot contain either spaces or punctuation.  See above list for examples.
  5. Enter a Description for the code.
  6. Optionally change the Sequence number to place the code into the existing set.  By default, new codes are placed at the bottom of the list.  Codes are NOT automatically alphabetized.
  7. Click "OK" button to add the new code.
  8. To remove codes, click the Trashcan icon.
  9. To update Descriptions, simply enter the new Descriptions.  Click "Save Codes" to store your changes.
  10. To re-order the codes, enter new sequence numbers and click "Save Codes" to store the changes.
