How to scan a barcode

  • Hold the barcode two or three inches beneath the scanner so that the red line emitted by the scanner horizontally bisects the barcode.
  • If the scan is successful, the scanner beeps and computer displays a popup window showing the results of the scan.

  • If an incorrect status is shown, simply scan your barcode again, to toggle to the desired status.
  • To sitout one or more tips, set your status to 'Absent'.
    Set your status to 'Ready' when you wish to dance again.
