Color Code

The Color Code is a feature that helps you categorize your cardholders in Producer. Click on the color to open the Color Picker and choose your own color. You can also copy/paste Hex Color Code, example: FF8000 for orange. Leave the description empty to remove the color from pull-down menu in Producer.

Content

We have two different types of objects we can place on a template in order to identify the category of the person on the card.

  • Rectangular shape with the background color of the Color Code.
  • Description of the Color Code Example: Manager or Volunteer.

You can associate 15 colors with 15 descriptions that will assign a security or other type of ID level to each type of card holder, as required. This may be useful when you have several different zones within a complex or building (or at an event), each requiring a different level of access (ex: manager, security, volunteer, media, visitor etc.). You can use the Color Code in many ways, see it as a pull-down menu for each card with the option to set a color.

Example: you can use only one 2 rows in your project: VALID and EXPIRED, leave the 13 others empty. Use green for VALID and red for EXPIRED. In Producer, when you want to revoke a cardholder card, select EXPIRED and save the card. Next time you scan the card you will see “EXPIRED” on your screen in red capitals.
