How to connect the iPad and printer

Steps to connect the iPad to the printer so visitors receive an ID label when signing in.

Once you have ensured your printer is connected to the wifi network, follow the below steps to connect your printer to your iPad.  

  • Ensure you are running the latest version of the SwipedOn app and open this on the iPad.

  • Log into the SwipedOn app using the device ID associated with your SwipedOn account and located within the 'Devices' tab of your SwipedOn web dashboard.

  • Open the hidden menu by tapping three times on the SwipedOn logo on the top left of the SwipedOn app.

  • Select Printers.

  • If connecting to a printer on the Wi-Fi network, tap on 'Search for printers'.

  • This will then search for any printers connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

  • Once found, tap on the green plus button to the right of the printer name to connect the printer.

  • Your printer will now display a blue tick to the left and a red disable button to the right which means that it is connected.

  • Tap ‘Test print’ to confirm that the printer is working.

You are now ready to print and use SwipedOn! 😃
