Print Flash Passes in the Flash App

Modified on Wed, 13 Dec 2023 at 12:19 PM


The Flash Pass is a prepaid Parking Pass that is typically set up to be purchased and printed from a Pay on Foot, serving as the customer's entry and exit ticket. However Flash also offers the option to print the passes from our Flash App. The Flash App is commonly used in conjunction with a Windows Surface Go tablet, and it allows for printing using any compatible personal printer. The Flash App is not end-user (parker) facing and only the Parking Operator will have access to print the Flash Pass.



You can download the Flash App onto a Windows-based PC, bypassing the need for a Surface Go tablet. However, it's essential to note that Flash cannot offer support if you download the application on a device other than the Surface Go tablet we provide. To proceed with this alternative, a signed waiver is required.




Requirements

  • A User account with Bulk Validations enabled to log into the Flash App. (Contact Flash Support for User Account setup)
  • A Validation Account with Bulk Validations/Passes enabled and must have one or more Flash Passes selected.
  • Flash App ver 1.0.5.2 or later.


Flags enabled at the Validation Account



How to Generate Bulk Flash Passes


1. Click on the “Flash Pass” tab.


2. From the validator account field, click on the search icon.

11. Set the Name of the file to be downloaded and click “Save”.


12. Open the downloaded file.

Dynamic Bonus Load in Bulk Flash Passes

Dynamic Bonus Loads can be applied to Flash Passes in bulk or individually as you're issuing the pass at the moment of purchase. The Flash App will enable a custom field called Dynamic Bonus Load where you can enter any bonus amount you want on the passes. The bonus load amount is applied on a per-pass basis.



How to Print

Follow the same process listed above for generating Bulk Passes.

These are the things that should happen when selecting a Dynamic Flash Pass in the Flash App:


  • The Quantity field is set to 1 by default.
  • The Dynamic Load field is enabled (Does not accept $0, you are required to enter a Bonus Load Amount).
  • You will not be required to select a Tender Type. This is because no transaction will be processed when generating these passes.
  • Once you print the passes, the Validation Account will remain selected and the Quantity field will reset back to 1.


The Flash Pass Load Report will register the Load amount as $0 and the correct Bonus Load entered on these passes.
