Print ID Badges

The Print ID Badges screen is used to customize and print student ID badges. The customized badge also displays for students logged into the mobile app in the Virtual ID Badge screen.

If the local ID student field has a value in it (student field with the alias local_id), the local ID and its corresponding bar code will display on the badge instead of the student ID.
