Question:

How do I get barcodes to print on mailing labels or envelopes?

I check the Barcode box on the Label/Envelopes report setup window, but they don't print.

Answer:

The short answer is—have your addresses CASS certified. CDM+ 8.1.2 will print barcodes only on addresses that have a current (not expired) CASS certification because without the certification, a barcode is incomplete and therefore wrong. An incomplete barcode may actually slow down your mail!

Perhaps you have just opened your church office toolbox—CDM+—for the first time and scanned the Welcome window. You’re amazed at the variety of ministry tools available but are unsure where to begin. Or, maybe you have used CDM+ for years and know it’s time to go to the next level. Or you’ve been handed an accounting or payroll mess to straighten out. Where do you turn for assistance?

Create the Right Setup for CDM+ Check-In/Check-Out

CDM+ Check-In/Check-Out was released 15 months ago and has generated great interest from our users. The flexibility of CDM+ Check-In/Check-Out was the subject of the lead article in the December 23, 2008 CDM+ Connection. Since that article, which encouraged thinking outside the infant nursery, we have heard from users exploring the use of CDM+ Check-In/Check-Out for worship attendance, at a soup kitchen, and for small group ministries, to name just a few examples.
