I am looking for a module that will automatically print an ID badge or card for each employee. Does that exist anywhere?

This feature was added at version 10 (both editions).

1. Employees --> Employees

2. Open an Employee (or select many from the list view) and from the Print menu, select "Print Badge"

The barcodes on the badges can be scanned via the Attendance App through a kiosk mode page allowing employees to sign in and out.

in the release notes it says:

Tablet UiPut a tablet at your company entrance, and manage attendees with badges or code.

I managed to print the badges, but how does the actual scanning happen?

Do you need a scanner attached to the tablet? or will the build in camera suffice?

You have posted an answer to a question that was already answered, but it actually a new question. I am not sure if people will find your question - because the original question isn't really related to your question. If you don't get answers here, maybe you can repost as a new question?
