If you have sold General Admission tickets, you will want to use the Door Entry Management app built within the Ticketing solution.
The Door Entry application has been created for the iOS operating system. Therefore, you will need either an iPhone, iPad or iPod to manage Door Entry. The Door Entry application will be supplied by Edutrak Software.
It is best if you use the recommended scanner in conjunction with this Door Entry app. It will allow much faster door entry. However with the latest release, it is now possible to use the built-in iPOD camera to scan the tickets receipts. This would be great for a backup or if you need additional help scanning tickets at the door.
The image below shows the Door Entry program displayed on an iPod.
Before you open the Door Entry program, it's a good idea to check the iOS settings that the bluetooth Mobile Socket Scanner is connected to your iPod.
Now, tap on the Door Entry program to open it.

Scanning with iPod Camera
Below is an example of a bar code ticket printed with the mPOS app ticket printer. You can also scan a barcode receipt from a customer's device such as an iPhone or the customer's e-mail receipt. You can also very easily enter the ticket number manually, just in case the scan isn't successful for whatever reason.
When scanning with the camera, you will see this on your camera. Move the camera so the red line is appears on the bar code. When it is focused, it will automatically scan the ticket.
When that scan is successful, you will see a screen similar to the one below.
At first, you'll see the ticket number in the top section, but it moves very quickly. When it's completed scanning, you will see an image like the one above. You can also enter the ticket number manually by clicking in the Ticket Number box and entering the ticket number.
If the ticket is for another date, you might see a screen similar to this.
