Scanning barcodes provides quick and efficient access control for events and shows. This scanning functionality is also helpful in expediting ticket refunds and exchanges. You can also define, print, and scan membership barcodes. You can print barcodes on membership cards you generate or that you purchase from an outside vendor. Scanning membership barcodes provides an efficient method of access control for members attending an event or show. Membership scanning also helps streamline the membership information look-up process and expedites general admissions sales transactions. In addition to tickets and membership cards, you can also scan coupons during sales processes. For more information, see Define Coupon Barcodes on page 8.

6 2 CHAPTER 1 ThePatron Edge provides barcode scanning capability using wired devices. Barcode scanning using wireless devices is available only with the optional module Access Control, which requires implementation services. If your organization is interested in Access Control and wireless barcode scanning, please send an information request to For more information about wireless scanning, see Wireless Barcode Scanning in ThePatron Edge on page45.for membership scanning to work, the program must recognize the membership barcodes. For example, membership numbers generated from The Patron Edge are automatically recognized. However, if TheRaiser s Edge generates your membership cards and numbers, you must configure the program to recognize those numbers when scanned. If your organization uses a third party to generate membership cards and numbers, you will need a custom-developed solution to successfully scan membership barcodes. For information about obtaining a custom solution, please send an information request to Prepare for Wired Barcode Scanning There are multiple tasks to complete when preparing to use barcode scanning in ThePatron Edge. First, we recommend that you review your current business processes and examine how implementing barcode scanning will change those processes. For example, consider these questions. Will you use both ticket and membership scanning? What sales and access points should have scanners? For ticket scanning and access control, do you want to limit validation capabilities per event, scanner, and date range? Are your tickets and membership cards printed from ThePatron Edge or from an outside source? Note: This guide provides information about setting up, printing, and scanning barcodes for tickets and membership cards. The audience for this document varies. The setup and preparation tasks are intended for an administrator, while the actual scanning procedures are intended for box office employees. In addition to reviewing your processes and considering implementation options, you must acquire compatible hardware, define barcodes, and configure various Administration settings. Note: Wired barcode scanning in ThePatron Edge works with any PS/2 compatible barcode scanning device. However, you may be required to program the device to enable compatibility. Define Ticket Barcodes To scan tickets in ThePatron Edge, the ticket documents must display the appropriate barcode. This section provides specific information about defining the required barcode. For ticket barcode scanning, you access the Document Designer in Administration and add the required barcode to your ticket document. Once added, the program prints this unique barcode on each ticket sold. With the Document Designer, you can select the location of the barcode on a ticket document and resize and rotate the code as needed until it fits properly. The default barcode format is Code 39, also known as Code 3 of 9, cannot be changed. Code 39 is an alphanumeric barcode that encodes 43 characters; 0-9, A-Z, minus symbol, plus symbol, forward slash, space, decimal point, dollar sign and percent symbol. For more information about building tickets using the Document Designer, see the Document Design Guide.

To change the orientation of the barcode from horizontal to vertical, select Rotate and either 90 cw or 90 ccw. 8. To display the barcode representation on the ticket document instead of the placeholder, select Show As Bar Code. 9. To save the format selection and return to the Document Designer, click OK. Define Membership Barcodes To scan membership cards in ThePatron Edge, the membership card documents must display the appropriate barcode. This section provides specific information about defining the required barcode type. If you are integrated with TheRaiser s Edge, you must decide whether to generate membership cards from TheRaiser s Edge or ThePatron Edge and make this a standardized part of your business practices. Although a successful integration will recognize scanned membership cards from either system, you must generate those cards from one system or the other. If a patron needs to reprint a membership card, it must be reprinted from the program where it was initially generated. When defining barcodes for membership cards, there are several possibilities depending on how your organization produces the actual membership cards. Membership Cards Generated in ThePatron Edge - If ThePatron Edge generates your membership cards, you define the code by simply accessing the Document Designer and adding the required membership barcode to your membership card design. This unique barcode is then generated with each membership purchased and printed on each membership card. When scanned, ThePatron Edge recognizes and processes the barcode.

10 6 CHAPTER 1 Membership Cards Generated in TheRaiser s Edge - If TheRaiser s Edge generates your membership cards using the default 15-character format, you must configure the program to recognize them. For more information, see Configure ThePatron Edge to Scan Raiser s Edge Membership Barcodes on page 20. If you generate membership cards in TheRaiser s Edge but you are not using the default 15-character format, you will need a custom-developed solution to successfully scan membership barcodes. For information about obtaining a custom solution, please send an information request to Note: To generate membership cards from TheRaiser s Edge, you must have the optional module Membership Management. For more information about membership cards generated from TheRaiser s Edge, see the Membership Cards section of the Mail Guide for The Raiser s Edge. Non-System Membership Cards - If your organization uses a third party to generate membership cards and numbers, you will need a custom-developed solution to successfully scan membership barcodes. For information about obtaining a custom solution, please send an information request to Define membership barcodes This procedure is for defining a barcode for membership cards generated from The Patron Edge. 1. Access Administration and expand the Document Design folder. 2. Double-click Ticket Design. The Document Designer screen appears. 3. Access the File menu and select Open Printer Document. The Load Printer document screen appears.

11 WIRED BARCODE SCANNING IN THE PATRON EDGE 7 4. In the Document Name field, select the membership card document for which you are adding the barcode and click OK. The document appears. 5. In the list on the left side of the screen, select and drag Barcode onto the document and place it where you want the code to appear on the ticket. You can adjust the size by clicking Barcode, hovering the cursor over an edge, and dragging it. Note: The Barcode field in the Document Designer is not related to coupon barcodes and cannot be configured to display a coupon barcode. Instead, you can use a standard Label field to add a coupon code to a document. For more information about configuring coupons, see the Coupons chapter of the Box Office Setup Guide.

12 8 CHAPTER 1 6. To view a number of configuration options that determine how the code appears, right-click Barcode. A shortcut menu appears. 7. To change the orientation of the barcode from horizontal to vertical, select Rotate and either 90 cw or 90 ccw. 8. To display the barcode representation on the membership card document instead of the placeholder, select Show As Bar Code. 9. To save the format selection and return to the Document Designer, Click OK. Define Coupon Barcodes When you set up and configure coupons in ThePatron Edge, you can select to use a system-generated ID or you can manually enter a user-defined ID. Both coupon ID types can be printed as barcodes that can be scanned during sales transactions and applied to the basket. For more information about configuring coupons, see the Coupons chapter of the Box Office Setup Guide. If your intent is to generate coupon codes that can be printed as barcodes in newspaper or magazine ads, tourist brochures, or other marketing correspondence intended for customers to bring into the box office, you can use either system-generated IDs or user-defined IDs when creating a coupon batch. However, if your box office does not have scanners, it may be beneficial to create user-defined coupon IDs as they can be shorter and therefore easier to enter manually.

13 WIRED BARCODE SCANNING IN THE PATRON EDGE 9 Both the system generated IDs and the user-defined IDs must unique. If your organization creates user-defined IDs, you should retain a list of all user-defined IDs that have been used. After an ID is generated, you can include it in promotional ads and mailings by simply converting the ID to a barcode using a word processing application. Depending on your organization, you may simply pass the ID on to your marketing team to convert it to a barcode and add to advertisements, brochures, or other marketing materials being designed. Warning: If your organization plans to circulate a coupon ID as a barcode that can be scanned at the box office or used online and at kiosks, you must print the barcode with the barcode numeric or alphanumeric characters intact. Users purchasing tickets online or at a kiosk can then enter the characters to receive the coupon benefit. It is important to note that The Patron Edge Online supports alphanumeric characters while The Patron Edge Kiosk supports only numeric characters. Additionally, you can add a coupon to various documents generated from ThePatron Edge using the Document Designer. For example, your organization may want to print a coupon barcode on a receipt (assuming your receipt printer is capable of printing barcodes), confirmation message, merchandise document, voucher, or other system document. If this is this case, you can open a document in the Document Designer, drag a Label field on to the document and enter the numeric coupon ID in the field. Next, to display the code on the document as a barcode, right-click on the field and select Show As Bar Code. For more information about using the Document Designer, see the Document Design Guide. Configure Barcode Administration Settings Before you can scan tickets, membership cards, and coupons in ThePatron Edge, you must activate the scanning functionality and configure administration settings for the scanners you use. For ticket and membership barcode scanning, you must also define specific scanning rules. Some preparation tasks do not apply to all organizations, for example, you must configure non-program barcodes only if you generate barcodes outside of ThePatron Edge and TheRaiser s Edge. Each preparation task appears in this section along with procedures. Activate barcode scanning. This is a required task for all scanning. Set the company parameters related to generating membership barcodes. This is a required task if you are generating membership barcodes. Set barcode validity and scanning intervals for shows. This is a required task if you are scanning tickets. Define barcode scanners. This is a required task for all scanning. Define ticket scanning rules. This is a required task if you are scanning tickets. Define membership scanning rules. This is a required task if you are scanning memberships. Prepare for membership ticket scanning. This is a required task if you generate ticket records when scanning membership cards for access control. Configure ThePatron Edge to scan the default 15-character Raiser s Edge membership barcode. This is a required task only if your organization uses membership cards generated from TheRaiser s Edge with the default 15 character format. Configure user profiles for scanning. This is a required task for all scanning. Configure wired scanners. This is a required task for all scanning.

14 10 CHAPTER 1 Configure prefix and suffix settings for your scanners. This is a required task if your scanners cannot be programmed for compatibility with the default prefix and suffix. Activate Barcode Scanning In preparation for using barcode scanning, you must access the Company Table in Administration and set the value for System Barcode Activated to Yes. This enables the program to generate barcodes when tickets and memberships are purchased. Activate barcode scanning 1. Access Administration and expand the System Set Up folder. 2. Double-click Company. The Maintain Company Table screen appears. 3. On the General tab, locate the System Barcode Activated option. 4. Mark Yes to activate barcodes in ThePatron Edge. If you mark this option No, the program does not generate barcodes for tickets and memberships, regardless of other settings. Note: The Barcode generation function field changes only when you implement program customizations. If you use the standard scanning functionality, you should leave the program default value, which is 1. This number identifies the stored procedure in the database used for barcode scanning. 5. After activating barcodes, click OK to save the setting. A confirmation message appears. 6. Click OK again. 7. To close the Maintain Company Table screen and return to Administration, click Back.

15 WIRED BARCODE SCANNING IN THE PATRON EDGE 11 Set Company Parameters for Generating Membership Barcodes If you are generating membership barcodes, you can set a company parameter in Administration that determine whether barcodes are generated only when membership cards are printed and whether new barcodes are generated when memberships are renewed. Set company parameters for generating membership barcodes 1. Access Administration and expand the System Set Up folder. 2. Double-click Company. The Maintain Company Table screen appears. 3. Select the General tab. 4. Locate the Generate Subscription Barcode On Printing field. This setting allows you to delay the creation of new membership barcodes until membership cards are printed. It is especially helpful if your organization solicits and processes renewals in advance of membership expiration. If you mark Yes, a membership barcode must be printed in order for it to be recorded in the Barcodes database table. If you mark No, membership barcodes are added to the Barcodes database table when generated and not as a result of printing. 5. Locate the Create new barcode on subscription renewal field. This setting controls whether a new barcode is created when a membership is renewed. To generate a new membership barcode with each renewal, mark Yes. To disallow the creation of new barcodes when memberships are renewed, mark No. 6. To save the settings, click OK. A confirmation message appears. 7. Click OK again. 8. To close the Maintain Company Table screen and return to Administration, click Back.

16 12 CHAPTER 1 Set Barcode Validity and Scanning Intervals for Shows For each show, multiple settings control the validity of a ticket barcode. In Administration, you can access each show and determine whether to allow ticket barcode scanning. If allowed, you can enter a specific number of days it is valid, a range of valid dates, and an expiration date. You can also designate whether the tickets should be scanned on the show or event level. If your organization generally sells reserved seating tickets, the By Event setting is typically used because the tickets are valid for a specific event performance. If you select By Event, the program ignores the Barcode Valid Days, Barcode Valid From, and Barcode Valid To Date fields. If your organization sells admission tickets, the By Show setting is typically used because the tickets are generally not tied to a specific event. Instead, they are used for admission and may be good for an extended period of time until used or they expire. There are many possibilities when setting the barcode validity by show or event. While we mention typical scenarios, we recommend reviewing your own business processes to determine the best setting for your organization. For example, although organizations with a general admission ticket would typically use By Show, they may need to configure By Event if they configures their admission by event. Some organizations may do this to control crowds and limit admission access during specific blocks of time. Additionally, you must designate scanning intervals to determine the amount of time a ticket can be scanned and validated prior to and after a show begins. These intervals are required whether you are scanning tickets on the show or event level. The default setting is 60 minutes before and after the show begins. Using the default as an example, if a ticket is scanned more than 60 minutes before a show begins or more than 60 minutes after it begins, the scanner displays an error message that reads Unable to Find Matching Event or Ticket Outdated. Set barcode validity and scanning intervals for shows 1. Access Administration and expand the Events folder. 2. Double-click Shows. The Administration- Shows screen appears.

17 WIRED BARCODE SCANNING IN THE PATRON EDGE In the grid, double-click the show that will use ticket barcode scanning. The Shows-Edit screen appears. Note: The settings you enter in the Barcode Valid Days, Barcode Valid From, Barcode Valid To Date, and Barcode Check Level fields are generally determined by the types of shows and events for which your organization is scanning, as well as your business processes. 4. In the Barcode Valid Days field, enter the number of days for which the barcode is valid, starting from the ticket sale date. If this show is configured as admission to a museum or similar venue, typically the value of this field would be a fairly long period of time, for example, 90 days. If you do not support barcode scanning for this show, enter In the Barcode Valid From field, enter the date the barcode is effective. The default value is the current date. If you prefer not to set a valid range and would rather the barcode be effective as of the ticket sale date, enter 01/01/1900 in this field. 6. In the Barcode Valid To Date field, enter the barcode expiration date. The default value is the current date. If you prefer not to set a valid range and would rather the barcode expire after the number of days entered in the Barcode Valid Days field passes, enter 01/01/1900 in this field. 7. In the Barcode Check Level field, select By Show to set the barcode validity dates according to the above parameters. This option is useful for tickets not associated with a specific date, such as admission tickets to museums or exhibitions. Select By Event to indicate that a barcode is effective only on the day of the respective event and the program ignores the preceding parameters.

18 14 CHAPTER 1 8. In the Interval before event field, you must enter a specific number of minutes prior to the start of an event that tickets can be scanned and validated. This field applies only when By Event is selected in the Barcode Check Level field. For example, if you want to start scanning tickets two hours before an event starts, you would enter 120 in this field. The default setting is 60 minutes. If a ticket is scanned outside this duration, the scanner displays an error message that reads Unable to Find Matching Event. Note: If you selected By Show in the Barcode Check Level field, any duration entered in the Interval before event field is ignored. 9. In the Scan After Event Starts field, you must enter a specific number of minutes for which to allow tickets to be scanned and validated after an event starts. This field applies only when By Event is selected in the Barcode Check Level field. For example, if you want to allow tickets to be scanned and validated for up to an hour and a half after an event has started, you would enter 90 in this field. The default setting is 60 minutes. If a ticket is scanned outside this duration, the scanner displays an error message that reads Ticket Outdated. Note: If you selected By Event in the Barcode Check Level field, the number of minutes you enter in the Scan After Event Starts field must be less than or equal to the event duration. If you selected By Show in the Barcode Check Level field, any duration entered in this field is ignored. 10. To save the setting and close the show record, click OK. Define Barcode Scanners During this process, you access Administration and identify each scanner with a unique ID and description. Typically, you associate individual scanners with locations in your building or venue. For example, you may have scanners at each sales point and each entry or access control location. Define your barcode scanners 1. Access Administration and expand the Scan & Validate folder.

In the Show field, select a show to permit the scanner to validate. To permit the scanner to validate all shows, select All. If you intend to create ticket records when a membership card is scanned, you must select a specific show. 7. In the Event field, select an event to permit the scanner to validate. To permit the scanner to validate all events of the selected show, select All. This drop-down list includes only events belonging to the selected show. 8. In the Enabled From and Enabled To fields, you can specify a date range for which membership cards can be scanned. This is typically used for general admission organizations that configure shows and events as admission to their building. Note: If you create a ticket record when scanning membership cards, we recommend you also add a unique member tickets user name, sales point, and membership ticket price type to ThePatron Edge for reporting purposes. For more information, see Prepare for Membership Ticket Scanning on page To determine whether the program creates a ticket record when you scan a membership card for admission to an event, access the Create ticket record field and select Yes or No. Creating ticket records is available only for admission events and shows. If you select Yes, the program adds a record to the Tickets database table that captures the member s attendance. You must also designate a specific show or event for scanning. If you configure membership scanning for all shows and events, ticket records are not created regardless of the setting in the Create ticket record field. 10. To save the rules and return to the Administration-Membership Scanning Rules screen, click OK. The record of the rules you created appears in the grid. Prepare for Membership Ticket Scanning If you generate ticket records when scanning membership cards for access control, we recommend that you add a unique membership ticket user name, sales point, and membership ticket price type in Administration. By adding unique membership ticket characteristics, you can report effectively on tickets generated and processed from membership card scans. For more information about reporting, see Barcode Scanning Reports on page 71. Once you add the unique membership ticket characteristics in Administration, you must access the engine configuration screen and designate the member tickets characteristics to use when generating membership tickets.

To save the information and return to Administration, click OK. Configure The Patron Edge to Scan Raiser s Edge Membership Barcodes If your organization prints membership cards generated from TheRaiser s Edge using the default 15-character format, you can configure the ThePatron Edge to recognize the barcodes. To enable this recognition, you must configure several settings in ThePatron Edge and your database. This process should be completed by a system administrator with working knowledge of SQL Server. The configuration process involves several tasks: Note: For more information about membership cards generated from TheRaiser s Edge, see the Membership Cards section of the Mail Guide for The Raiser s Edge. Verify that you have the required DLL files needed to enable ThePatron Edge to scan and process barcodes generated from TheRaiser s Edge using the default 15-character format. The required DLLs are TIX_REValidation.dll and PEBarcodeScanning.dll. By default, these files are located in the following directory where they should remain: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Blackbaud\The Patron Edge\Objects. Configure the scanning engine to recognize the default 15-character format Raiser s Edge barcodes. Configure the scanning engine for Raiser s Edge barcodes 1. Access Administration and expand Scan & Validate.

Configure Wired Scanners Wired barcode scanning in ThePatron Edge works with any PS/2 compatible barcode scanning device.

27 WIRED BARCODE SCANNING IN THE PATRON EDGE 23 Generally, you install a wired scanner by connecting it to your machine s keyboard PS/2 connection port. This PS/2 port is traditionally purple and is located on the back of your PC. To install the scanner, you unplug your keyboard and plug the scanner into the PS/2 port. You then plug the keyboard into an extension input on the scanner cord. After attaching the scanner to your machine, you must program it to recognize the default prefix (~~) and suffix (~). If your scanner is hard-coded with a prefix and suffix and is not programmable, you must add a new prefix and suffix record in Administration to enable compatibility with ThePatron Edge. For information about adding a new prefix and suffix record, see Configure Prefix and Suffix Settings for Scanners on page 23. These are general configuration steps that may not apply to your scanner. You should refer to the manufacturer s instructions to install and program your particular barcode scanner. Configure Prefix and Suffix Settings for Scanners For a scanner to successfully read barcodes, it must recognize both a prefix that signifies the beginning of a scan and a suffix that signifies the end of a scan. In ThePatron Edge, the default prefix is ~~ and the default suffix is ~. If you scanner is programmable, you can simply program it to use these default settings. However, if you have a scanner that is hard-coded with a prefix and suffix that cannot be changed, you will need to add the specific prefix and suffix for the scanner in Administration. Once added, the scanner will work in ThePatron Edge. You can add multiple prefix and suffix records to meet the needs of all scanners used by your organization. Configure prefix and suffix settings for scanners 1. Access Administration and expand the Scan & Validate folder. 2. Double-click Prefix/Suffix Configuration. The Administration-Prefix/Suffix Configuration screen appears. A record containing the default prefix ~~ and the default suffix ~ is displayed. We recommend that you leave the default prefix and suffix record intact and add new records for additional prefix and suffix configurations.

28 24 CHAPTER 1 3. To add a new prefix and suffix, access the toolbar and click the New button. The Prefix/Suffix Configuration- Add New screen appears. 4. In the Scanned Code Prefix field, enter the prefix your scanner uses to recognize the beginning of a scanned number. 5. In the Scanned Code Suffix field, enter the suffix your scanner uses to recognize the end of a scanned number. 6.

With Access Control, you use compatible wireless devices to scan and validate tickets and membership cards. You can also set a membership scanning rule to create a ticket record for each membership card scanned. Due to the technical requirements involved with installing this module, implementation services are required. If your organization is interested in Access Control and wireless barcode scanning, please send an information request to The installation and configuration information contained in this document is intended for reference use and is designed to complement implementation services.

50 46 CHAPTER 2 Prepare for Wireless Barcode Scanning There are multiple tasks to complete when preparing to use wireless barcode scanning in ThePatron Edge. First, we recommend that you review your current business processes and examine how implementing wireless scanning will change those processes. For example, consider these questions. Will you use both ticket and membership scanning? What sales and access points should have scanners? For ticket scanning and access control, do you want to limit validation capabilities per event, scanner, and date range? Are your tickets and membership cards printed from ThePatron Edge or from an outside source? You must also acquire compatible hardware. The optional module Access Control is a browser-based solution that works with wireless devices capable of scanning barcodes and that are equipped with Windows Mobile (versions 2002, 2003, and 2005). During testing of this module, Symbol MC50 series scanners were used. In addition to reviewing your processes, considering implementation options and acquiring hardware, you must define barcodes and configure various Administration settings. For detailed information about defining ticket and membership barcodes, see Define Ticket Barcodes on page2 and Define Membership Barcodes on page5. Information about configuring wireless Administration settings is provided in this chapter. Install and Configure Access Control The installation process for Access Control involves multiple tasks, some of which are outside the scope of our software. These include installing IIS on the machine where Access Control will reside and installing a Wi-Fi ( b/g) access point on your network to allow wireless communication between the wireless devices, Access Control, and your database. Process Summary Checklist The following checklist provides a summary of the installation and configuration steps required to get wireless scanning up and running. If your organization is currently using wired barcode scanning, some of the Administration settings will already be configured. Make sure Internet Information Services (IIS) is installed on the computer where Access Control will reside. For more information about IIS, see IIS must be installed before continuing. Install the wireless scanning application. Before installation, confirm that the computer where the application will be installed is connected to your network and has access to the Patron Edge database. Configure the Administration settings for wireless scanning. These include activating barcode scanning, designating scanner IDs, configuring scanning rules, and configuring the scanning engine.

51 WIRELESS BARCODE SCANNING IN THE PATRON EDGE 47 Confirm that you have an existing b or g access point on your network. If you do not have an existing access point, you must add one to your network before continuing. Verify that IIS is accessible via the access point. Installing an access point is outside the scope of this documentation. Refer to the access point manufacturer s documentation for installation and configuration instructions. Configure your wireless device to connect to your wireless network. You will need to configure security, connection speed, and protocol settings as required by the specific devices you are using. Configuring wireless devices to connect to your wireless network is outside the scope of this documentation. Refer to the wireless device manufacturer s documentation for configuration instructions. Configure the barcode scanner on your wireless device. We provide instructions for configuring Symbol MC50 series wireless devices. If you are using devices other than the MC50 series, refer to the manufacturer s documentation for configuration instructions. Install the Wireless Scanning Application The process for manually installing this application is technical and should be completed by an implementation services provider or system administrator. The installation package described here is not included with ThePatron Edge. It is part of the optional module Access Control. The installation package includes the following three files: TIX_ScanEngine.dll (the scanning DLL). Default.asp (the Web page that should be accessed from the wireless device). Global.asa (the configuration file for the Web page). Install the wireless scanning application 1. Access the computer where you want to install Access Control. Make sure the installation package containing the three required files is accessible. 2. Open the installation package and copy TIX_ScanEngine.dll to your computer. 3. Register TIX_ScanEngine.dll. If you are installing the wireless application on the machine where The Patron Edge is installed, this file is already registered. 4. Open IIS and create a virtual directory. To open IIS, access the Windows Control Panel and double-click Administrative Tools. The Administrative Tools screen appears.

Set Session( Default_Scanner_Suffix ) to the default suffix value of the device s barcode scanner. b. If you want to change the suffix of a specific scanner to a value other than the default, change the value of Session("Scanner_[Scanner ID]_Suffix") accordingly. The suffix you enter should comply with the wireless device s configuration. An empty string is not allowed. The wireless scanner must send a suffix during a scan. c. In Session("ConnectionString")=, enter the encrypted connection string to the Patron Edge key service. To obtain this value, access the computer where ThePatron Edge is installed. On the Windows task bar, click Start and select Run. On the Run screen, access the Open field and enter regedit. Click OK and the Registry Editor screen appears. Next, copy the value of CSInfo from: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VB and VBA Program Settings\toptix\DataAccess\PEKeyServiceURL. Note: For more information about the key service, see the Payment Application Data Security Standards Implementation Guide for The Patron Edge. 15. Once you have entered the required information, save and close the Global.asa file. 16. The wireless scanning application is now installed and configured to communicate with your Patron Edge database. To verify that the scanning application is working correctly, from IIS, select the virtual directory you created.

56 52 CHAPTER Next, right-click on the default.asp file and select Browse. A browser window should open displaying the Web page used for wireless scanning and validation. 18. To confirm that a barcode will scan correctly, type a barcode number into the Manual Validation field and click Validate. This process manually simulates a barcode scan. If an error message appears, see Troubleshoot Wireless Barcode Scanning on page 68. Once the wireless application is installed and successfully tested, The next step is configuring Administration settings for wireless scanning.

57 WIRELESS BARCODE SCANNING IN THE PATRON EDGE 53 Configure Administration Settings for Wireless Scanning Before you can scan tickets, membership cards, and coupons in ThePatron Edge, you must activate the scanning functionality and configure administration settings for the scanners you use. For ticket and membership barcode scanning, you must also define specific scanning rules. If your organization is currently using wired barcode scanning, some of the Administration settings will already be configured. Some tasks do not apply to all organizations, for example, you must configure non-program barcodes only if you generate barcodes outside of ThePatron Edge and TheRaiser s Edge. Each preparation task appears in this section along with procedures. Note: Before configuring Administration settings, make sure your organization has already defined ticket and membership barcodes. For detailed information about defining ticket and membership barcodes, see Define Ticket Barcodes on page 2 and Define Membership Barcodes on page 5. Activate barcode scanning. This is a required task for all scanning. Set barcode validity and scanning intervals for shows. This is a required task if you are scanning tickets. Define barcode scanners. This is a required task for all scanning. Define ticket scanning rules. This is a required task if you are scanning tickets. Define membership scanning rules. This is a required task if you are scanning memberships. Prepare for membership ticket scanning. This is a required task if you generate ticket records when scanning membership cards for access control. Configure ThePatron Edge to scan the default 15-character Raiser s Edge membership barcode. This is a required task only if your organization uses membership cards generated from TheRaiser s Edge with the default 15 character format. Configure user profiles for scanning. This is a required task for all scanning. Activate Barcode Scanning In preparation for using wireless barcode scanning, you must access the Company Table in Administration and set the value for System Barcode Activated to Yes. This enables the program to generate barcodes when tickets and memberships are purchased. Activate barcode scanning 1. Access Administration and expand the System Set Up folder. 2. Double-click Company. The Maintain Company Table screen appears.

58 54 CHAPTER 2 3. On the General tab, locate the System Barcode Activated option. 4. Mark Yes to activate barcodes in ThePatron Edge. If you mark this option No, the program does not generate barcodes for tickets and memberships, regardless of other settings. Warning: The Barcode generation function field changes only when you implement program customizations. If you use the standard scanning functionality, you should leave the program default value, which is 1. This number identifies the stored procedure in the database used for barcode scanning. 5. After activating barcodes, click OK to save the setting. A confirmation message appears. 6. Click OK again. 7. To close the Maintain Company Table screen and return to Administration, click Back. Set Barcode Validity and Scanning Intervals for Shows For each show, multiple settings control the validity of a ticket barcode. In Administration, you can access each show and determine whether to allow ticket barcode scanning. If allowed, you can enter a specific number of days it is valid, a range of valid dates, and an expiration date. You can also designate whether the tickets should be scanned on the show or event level. If your organization generally sells reserved seating tickets, the By Event setting is typically used because the tickets are valid for a specific event performance. If you select By Event, the program ignores the Barcode Valid Days, Barcode Valid From, and Barcode Valid To Date fields. If your organization sells admission tickets, the By Show setting is typically used because the tickets are generally not tied to a specific event. Instead, they are used for admission and may be good for an extended period of time until used or they expire.

59 WIRELESS BARCODE SCANNING IN THE PATRON EDGE 55 There are many possibilities when setting the barcode validity by show or event. While we mention typical scenarios, we recommend reviewing your own business processes to determine the best setting for your organization. For example, although organizations with a general admission ticket would typically use By Show, they may need to configure By Event if they configures their admission by event. Some organizations may do this to control crowds and limit admission access during specific blocks of time. Additionally, you must designate scanning intervals to determine the amount of time a ticket can be scanned and validated prior to and after a show begins. These intervals are required whether you are scanning tickets on the show or event level. The default setting is 60 minutes before and after the show begins. Using the default as an example, if a ticket is scanned more than 60 minutes before a show begins or more than 60 minutes after it begins, the scanner displays an error message that reads Unable to Find Matching Event or Ticket Outdated. Set barcode validity and scanning intervals for shows 1. Access Administration and expand the Events folder. 2. Double-click Shows. The Administration- Shows screen appears. 3. In the grid, double-click the show that will use ticket barcode scanning. The Shows-Edit screen appears. Note: The settings you enter in the Barcode Valid Days, Barcode Valid From, Barcode Valid To Date, and Barcode Check Level fields are generally determined by the types of shows and events for which your organization is scanning, as well as your business processes. 4. In the Barcode Valid Days field, enter the number of days for which the barcode is valid, starting from the ticket sale date. If this show is configured as admission to a museum or similar venue, typically the value of this field would be a fairly long period of time, for example, 90 days. If you do not support barcode scanning for this show, enter In the Barcode Valid From field, enter the date the barcode is effective. The default value is the current date. If you prefer not to set a valid range and would rather the barcode be effective as of the ticket sale date, enter 01/01/1900 in this field.

60 56 CHAPTER 2 6. In the Barcode Valid To Date field, enter the barcode expiration date. The default value is the current date. If you prefer not to set a valid range and would rather the barcode expire after the number of days entered in the Barcode Valid Days field passes, enter 01/01/1900 in this field. 7. In the Barcode Check Level field, select By Show to set the barcode validity dates according to the above parameters. This option is useful for tickets not associated with a specific date, such as admission tickets to museums or exhibitions. Select By Event to indicate that a barcode is effective only on the day of the respective event and the program ignores the preceding parameters. 8. In the Interval before event field, you must enter a specific number of minutes prior to the start of an event that tickets can be scanned and validated. This field applies only when By Event is selected in the Barcode Check Level field. For example, if you want to start scanning tickets two hours before an event starts, you would enter 120 in this field. The default setting is 60 minutes. If a ticket is scanned outside this duration, the scanner displays an error message that reads Unable to Find Matching Event. Note: If you selected By Show in the Barcode Check Level field, any duration entered in the Interval before event field is ignored. 9. In the Scan After Event Starts field, you must enter a specific number of minutes for which to allow tickets to be scanned and validated after an event starts. This field applies only when By Event is selected in the Barcode Check Level field. For example, if you want to allow tickets to be scanned and validated for up to an hour and a half after an event has started, you would enter 90 in this field. The default setting is 60 minutes. If a ticket is scanned outside this duration, the scanner displays an error message that reads Ticket Outdated. Note: If you selected By Event in the Barcode Check Level field, the number of minutes you enter in the Scan After Event Starts field must be less than or equal to the event duration. If you selected By Show in the Barcode Check Level field, any duration entered in this field is ignored. 10. To save the setting and close the show record, click OK.

61 WIRELESS BARCODE SCANNING IN THE PATRON EDGE 57 Define Barcode Scanners During this process, you access Administration and identify each scanner with a unique ID and description.

If you select Yes, the program adds a record to the Tickets database table that captures the member s attendance. You must also designate a specific show or event for scanning. If you configure membership scanning for all shows and events, ticket records are not created regardless of the setting in the Create ticket record field. Note: If you create a ticket record when scanning membership cards, we recommend you also add a unique member tickets user name, sales point, and membership ticket price type to ThePatron Edge for reporting purposes. For more information, see Prepare for Membership Ticket Scanning on page To save the rules and return to the Administration-Membership Scanning Rules screen, click OK. The record of the rules you created appears in the grid.

65 WIRELESS BARCODE SCANNING IN THE PATRON EDGE 61 Prepare for Membership Ticket Scanning If you generate ticket records when scanning membership cards for access control, we recommend that you add a unique membership ticket user name, sales point, and membership ticket price type in Administration. By adding unique membership ticket characteristics, you can report effectively on tickets generated and processed from membership card scans. For more information about reporting, see Barcode Scanning Reports on page 71.

Configure The Patron Edge to Scan Raiser s Edge Membership Barcodes If your organization prints membership cards generated from TheRaiser s Edge using the default 15-character format, you can configure the ThePatron Edge to recognize the barcodes. To enable this recognition, you must configure several settings in ThePatron Edge and your database. This process should be completed by a system administrator with working knowledge of SQL Server. The configuration process involves several tasks: Note: For more information about membership cards generated from TheRaiser s Edge, see the Membership Cards section of the Mail Guide for The Raiser s Edge. Verify that you have the required DLL files needed to enable ThePatron Edge to scan and process barcodes generated from TheRaiser s Edge using the default 15-character format. The required DLLs are TIX_REValidation.dll and PEBarcodeScanning.dll. By default, these files are located in the following directory where they should remain: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Blackbaud\The Patron Edge\Objects. Configure the scanning engine to recognize the default 15-character format Raiser s Edge barcodes. Configure the scanning engine for Raiser s Edge barcodes 1. Access Administration and expand Scan & Validate.

67 WIRELESS BARCODE SCANNING IN THE PATRON EDGE Double-click Engine Configuration. The Engine Configuration- Edit screen appears. 3. In the Ext.

The scanning engine is now configured. Configure a Wireless Device for Barcode Scanning The optional module Access Control is a browser-based solution that is compatible with wireless devices capable of scanning barcodes and that are equipped with Windows Mobile (versions 2002, 2003, and 2005). Before continuing, make sure your hardware meets the compatibility requirements. Compatible wireless devices contain a barcode reader application that must be launched before you can successfully use Access Control. For example, the Symbol MC50 series of devices contains the barcode reader application ScanWedge (ScanWedge.exe). We recommend that you configure the barcode reader application to run automatically when the wireless device is powered on.this is typically done using Microsoft ActiveSync, which is the synchronization software included with Windows Mobile-based devices, and a host computer. When synchronized, you can explore the device on your computer, create a shortcut to the barcode reader.exe, and copy it to the Application/Startup folder. Once complete, the application will start automatically when the device is powered on.

68 64 CHAPTER 2 The configuration information provided in this section applies specifically to Symbol MC50 series wireless devices. The configuration of other devices may differ slightly. We recommend that you review the manufacturer s documentation for the wireless device you are using. Configure a wireless device for barcode scanning 1. Power on the wireless device to configure for use with Access Control. 2. Launch the installed barcode reader application. For the Symbol MC50 series of devices, this application is ScanWedge. 3. On the Start screen, click the barcode icon located in the bottom right corner. If the barcode reader application has not yet been launched, no icon is displayed. A menu appears. Tip: We recommend that you configure the barcode reader application to run automatically when the wireless device is powered on. 4. Select Config and then Setup. The configuration screen appears for the barcode reader application. 5. Mark Send barcode data.

69 WIRELESS BARCODE SCANNING IN THE PATRON EDGE In the Suffix to send after barcode field, enter the correct suffix to use. The suffix should comply with the value established in the Global.asa file. This is a required setting. The wireless scanner must send a suffix during a scan. 7. Mark Send ENTER key after suffix. 8. To save the configuration settings, click OK. Use the Scanning Application Because Access Control is a browser-based wireless scanning solution, it is accessed from your wireless device by launching a Web browser, which in this case is Internet Explorer. You then navigate to the scanning Web site, which you previously configured, and scan ticket and membership barcodes for access or validation. Note: If you are scanning event tickets, the barcode information is validated against either the Events or Shows table, depending on the Barcode Check Level field setting in Administration. To check this setting, access Administration, expand Events, double-click Shows, and open the show you want to review. In the Check Barcode Level field, you can select either By Event or By Show. Scan ticket and membership barcodes with a wireless device 1. Access the wireless device you are using for barcode scanning. 2. From the Start screen, launch Internet Explorer and access the Default.asp page you previously configured. 3. If this is the first time you have accessed the site using this device, a Scanner ID screen appears. 4. In the Scanner ID field, enter the number of the scanner you are using. This is the ID defined on the Scanners List in Administration. For more information about defining scanner IDs, see Prepare for Wireless Barcode Scanning on page 42.

70 66 CHAPTER 2 5. Click Submit. The main scanning page appears. 6. In the Ticket validation mode field, select the default mode to use when scanning tickets. When scanning membership cards, validation mode is always used, regardless of the setting in this field. Note: To create a ticket record for each membership scan, you must configure the membership scanning rules in Administration. For more information, see Define Membership Scanning Rules on page 59. Select Ticket Check to verify the validity of a ticket without further action. Select Ticket Validation to validate a ticket and register it as used. Once you scan and validate a ticket, you cannot validate it again. 7. To view or change the current scanner ID, click Set Scanner ID.

71 WIRELESS BARCODE SCANNING IN THE PATRON EDGE You can now use the device to scan tickets and membership barcodes. Before scanning, make sure the application s window remains open (not minimized) and active (in focus). After a barcode is scanned, the screen displays a specific result message depending on the scanning mode selected and the validity of the barcode. Note: If you opt to print the corresponding numbers with the barcode on each ticket, you can perform a manual scan by entering the barcode numbers in the Manual Validation field and clicking Validate. This is helpful if the scanner has difficulty reading the barcode. Default messages that can appear include: Note: You can customize the various result messages by accessing the Barcodes_ResultMessages database table and manually changing each. Success - This message appears when you scan a ticket or membership card and validation is successful. The text is displayed in green to help quickly identify a successful validation. Ticket is already used - This message appears when a ticket has already been validated. The text is displayed in red to help quickly identify an unsuccessful validation. Membership is expired - This message appears when you scan a membership card and the program finds it expired. The text is displayed in red to help quickly identify an unsuccessful validation. Scanning for this event/show is disabled at the moment - This message appears when you scan an applicable card, but the program cannot complete the validation. Wrong scanner for the show/event - This message appears if you scan a card with a scanner not permitted to scan cards for the corresponding show or event. For more information about setting scanner permissions, see Prepare for Wireless Barcode Scanning on page 46. Code not found - This message appears if you scan a card, and the program cannot find the barcode in the Barcodes database table. 9. No action is required after you scan a membership card. You simply continue scanning tickets and membership cards as needed.

72 68 CHAPTER 2 Troubleshoot Wireless Barcode Scanning This section lists common error messages that can appear when wireless scanning is not working as expected. Possible causes and solutions (when applicable) are provided. Error - Code not found Possible Causes - If this error is displayed, the scanned barcode was not recognized or found in the database, which is typically due to one of the following issues: The scanned barcode is an invalid barcode number The scanned barcode is not found in ThePatron Edge database If you are integrated with TheRaiser s Edge and scanning a membership number that was generated with the default 15 character format, this error means the application is unable to locate the corresponding constituent in The Raiser s Edge Error - Server:CreateObjectFailed Possible Causes - If this error is displayed, it typically means a DLL is not registered properly or there is a problem with the scripting runtime. To correct the issue, try the following:

73 WIRELESS BARCODE SCANNING IN THE PATRON EDGE 69 The TIX_ScanEngine.dll is not registered on the machine running IIS. Try manually registering the TIX_ScanEngine.dll file on the machine running IIS and try again. This error could also be due to a problem with the scripting runtime. Try manually registering scrrun.dll (by default, located in C:\WINDOWS\system32) and try again. Error - Cannot initialize object of DataAccess2.clsoAdo Possible Causes - If this error is displayed, the default.asp page associated with the virtual directory you created during installation is unable to access the database. To correct the issue, try the following: Check the Global.asa file and make sure the encrypted connection string for accessing the database is correct. For more information about the encrypted connection string, see Install the Wireless Scanning Application on page 47.

74 70 CHAPTER 2

75 chapter 3 Barcode Scanning Reports Scanned Ticket Data Non-Scanned Ticket Data Membership Ticket Data ThePatron Edge provides multiple reports you can use to analyze ticket and membership scanning data for both reserved seat and general admission organizations. Using these reports, you can review data collected when tickets and membership cards are scanned. Additionally, you can run reports that provide information about tickets that have been purchased but not scanned.

76 72 CHAPTER 3 Scanned Ticket Data To report on tickets scanned, you can run the Event Tickets Scanned by Hour (General Admission) report and the Event Tickets Scanned (Reserved Seat) report. With each report, you determine the specific parameters for the ticketing data returned. The parameters you can select include event, event date, event group, show, and show type. These reports are located in Administration, within the Custom Reports category.

77 BARCODE SCANNING REPORTS 73 Non-Scanned Ticket Data To report on tickets purchased but not scanned, you can run the Event Tickets Not Scanned (General Admission) report and the Event Tickets Not Scanned (Reserved Seat) report. With each report, you determine the specific parameters for the non-scanned ticketing data returned. The parameters you can select include event, event date, event group, show, and show type. These reports are located in Administration, within the Custom Reports category. Membership Ticket Data If you use membership scanning for access control and create a ticket record with each scan, you can configure a unique sales point and price type for membership tickets. You can then report on the sales point or price type and membership scans using reports in ThePatron Edge that provide sales point and price type data. Common reports you can run to review membership ticket data include the Sales Point Sales report, the Sales According to Sales Point report, and the Event Sales report.

78 74 CHAPTER 3 The Sales Point Sales report provides sales data for a specific sales point that you designate. To report on membership scanning tickets, run this report and select the unique sales point you added for membership tickets. For a broader view of sales point data, you can run the Sales According to Sales Point report, which provides a view of sales across all sales points for the dates you enter. With this information you can effectively review and compare member attendance versus non-member. To review transaction data broken down by sales point you can run the Transaction Count By Sales Point report. You can also run Ticket Count By Sales Point report to review ticket count information by specific sales points.

79 BARCODE SCANNING REPORTS 75 In addition to sales point data you can, report on ticket records generated by membership card scanning with several reports in ThePatron Edge that provide price type data. However, to use these reports, you must have a membership card price type defined. A common report to use in this capacity is the Event Sales Report, which provides sales information according to price type by default. Additionally, to provide a view of membership tickets generated for events, you can run the Ticket Count By Price Type report. For more information about running reports, see the Reports Guide for ThePatron Edge.
