Modified on Fri, 31 Mar 2023 at 11:18 AM


1. Open up your Card Design by Clicking the Change a Design button, you will then get the option to Edit an Existing design or Create a new design. Select the appropriate option.


2. In the design view  Click the Magnetic Track Settings button.


3. In the properties area of the magnetic track encoding settings enter the field name in your database that contains the data that needs to be encoded.


In the example below the field with the mag data is called “Staff Number” and there is a suffix of “01” which is also encoded. You can change the string to meet your requirements if you need a different prefix or a suffix.



Click OK to confirm the setting change’s.


EasyBadge will now encode the data you have specified onto the card provided your make and model of printer is supported and it has a magnetic encoder and you are using magnetic stripe cards.
