Badge Items #

Your pre-set badge design by default, will have The full name, company name and job title and QR code displaying. You have total control over all of these fields and can add to or remove any item you wish. Each Badge field’s content can be edited to pull in any default profile field you’d like to display (not including custom fields). To remove a badge field simply click on the trash can icon next to the field. Alternatively, you can edit each field by clicking on the pencil icon.

  • Customise information displayed on the badge such as Profile Fields, Profile Picture, Attributes, QR code, Image or Text Field.
  • Edit or remove fields as needed.
  • Control font, size, weight, casing, colour, text wrapping, margins, and alignment.
