Sometimes you just need to quickly print a nametag or change some info for a nametag. Student Manager's Nametags on the Fly routine will take care of that for you.
From Reports > Registrations > Nametags check the Nametags on the fly box.
Click "OK" and you will get the Query List screen. Choose your query. In this case we are using course number begins with. You will then get the ON-THE-FLY Name Entry screen.
Depending on what you want to do will determine which of the options you choose.
For example Standard Cursor (w/Data) will give you a screen with all the registrants and the ability to edit or add information.
So, if you needed to quickly add a salutation to registrants' nametags, you would use the Standard Cursor and add the information to the blank Nmsalut field.
Finally, click done and the nametag report will run and the salutation will be on that person's nametag.
The Standard Cursor does not require you edit the fields on your name tag other than adding any fields that are not already there. For example, if you do not have Nmsalut on the nametag report then you must add the field to display the data.
The next 2 options require you to make some changes to your nametag report. Both the Quick Entry Style (w/data) and the Empty Quick Style (w/data) do not respect functions. So if you are using either of these you need to modify the nametag report to remove any functions and replace them. Most often you will have the namer function on the report. You can replace this with the individual nmname1, nmname2, nmname3 expressions.
So for editing existing records your best choice is Standard Cursor, but if you just need a name tag for someone - you don't need to register them in the course or event - you just need to quickly generate a name tag then you would use the Empty Quick Style.
After running your query you would choose Empty Quick Style.
Add the info you want for the name tag.
And here is what we get:
So when you just need to quickly generate or edit a nametag the nametags on the fly routine is the way to go.
