Specifying a Membership Type for Membership/Pass Entry Scans

In Gate Control, you can create a Membership Entry that will allow you to scan Membership Cards or Passes for access and entry to your event.

1. Open Gate Control Folder.

2. Create your Gate Control Batch(s). For instructions on how to create a Gate Control Batch, click here.

3. Once you have the Gate Control Batch(s) open, select the Event Batch that you want to create and add the Membership Entry.

4. In the Membership Entry field, right-click and select New.


5.The Gate Control Batch Membership Scan window will appear.

6. In the Membership drop-down, select the Membership or Pass Program.

7. The Buyer Type should be pointing to Gate Control -Scanned Entry, the User should be pointed to one of the scanners for your organization, and the Tier should be pointed to the Tier Level that you want the inventory to pull from.

8. Select the correct Ticket Type for entry.

9. In the Inventory Group drop-down, select the Inventory type that you want the inventory to pull from.

10. You can Choose a Payment Method if applicable, but most organizations keep None Selected as the default.

10. Once all information has been completed, click Apply and then OK.

NOTE: At this point, you should run a test by scanning a Member Card or Pass to make sure that the permissions are set up correctly. If the test scan is successful, you can then move to the next steps to copy the permissions to additional Gate Control Batches. 

11. If there are more than one Gate Control Batch, you can copy the completed Membership Scan to all the remaining batches. Right-click on the Membership Entry and select Multi.

12. Click on the radio button next to Copy.

15. Click OK once the copy process has completed.
