Accessing History

You can access History by clicking on the word "HISTORY" on the top bar of the VeriScan mobile app. Here you will find a searchable list of all the IDs you have scanned. You can access individual profiles by clicking on an individual's name.

To search, click the magnifying glass, then select which category you wish to search by. Then select the text bar and begin typing your search parameter.

As you type, different options will appear that match the information you have typed in. When you find the person you wish to select, tap on their name and to access their individual profile inside your device's history. 


Automatic Data


Once you have selected a person in your history, a profile page will appear like the one pictured here. On this page, you can see many different data fields that have been read by the scanner, including the following:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Group
  • Sex
  • ID#
  • Expiration Date
  • Date of Birth
  • Age
  • Address
  • City
  • Zip Code
  • State

Manual Data

You can also click the pencil icon next to the Contacts Field to manually enter in other data such as phone number and email address. You can also add comments to the profile to keep track of all other forms of data that do not have their own data fields.
Be sure to click ✔ Accept to save manually entered information and comments, or click X Decline to cancel and discard the information. 


Assigning a group

Once you have accessed a person's profile page via History, click the large button that says "Group" at the top center of the screen.

From here, you can set it to a default group (VIP or Banned) or any group you have created by tapping the group name

Creating a New Group

To create a new group, tap the new group icon from the "Select Group" menu. From here you can enter the group name.

Editing an Existing Group

To edit an existing group, tap the pencil icon from the "Select Group" menu.

From here you can change the name of an existing group by clicking the pencil icon next to the group you wish to edit.

You can also delete a group by clicking the trash icon next to the group you wish to delete.

Note that deleting a group does not delete the scan history of members of that group, it will simply assign them to the "none" group and leave your scan history intact.
