    • Set “Use Barcode Scanner” to "1"
    • Find Barcode Scanner COM Port (You may have to look in Device Manager to figure this out)
    • Select Multiple Pass Behavior (Manual or Automatic)

  4. Configure your Scanner
    • Scanner may or may not be set to continuous scan (this is a feature of the scanner)
    • Scanner must be set to emulate bi-directional serial port
      • Note: This will vary scanner-to-scanner, but it may be referred to as RS232

  5. Enable Scanner through CivicRec

    • Note: This step may already be complete in your case

  8. Select Check-in > Enable Instant Scan 
    • Note: Any time a new user logs in or the user changes location, they must re-enable Instant Scan.

  9. Once configured, you should see the following notification
