How to use barcode scanner to register players
« on: May 01, 2013, 10:33:19 PM »
I know there are users that do this, could someone outline the steps to using a barcode scanner to sign in players? I have a large event and I want to speed up the registration process.

I'm actually QUITE surprised that this hasn't been answered yet.  I saw someone (a while back) that posted a video of themselves using a barcode scanner and a receipt printer with TD.net and never told us how they did it.

It would be so professional and quick if one could just give their players barcode ID card and, blam - You're registered and seated.

I haven't personally done this, but I seem to recall someone somewhere having done just this... I'll see if I can find it, if I can, I'll post a link to the thread as a reply

Here's the best one I could find on here: http://www.thetournamentdirector.net/forums/index.php?topic=3159.0

In a nutshell: If the scanner doesn't have the software with it, you'll have to find the site. Set up a hotkey to coincide with the scanner, and you should basically be set.
