PhotoCard Digital ID cards provide a cost-effective way for people to prove their membership. Members can display a photo identification card directly from their phone. Once saved, they just tap an icon on their phone to display their PhotoCard ID. It even works when the phone doesn’t have a data plan or isn't connected to the internet.

For the public: How to display your own PhotoCard
If your sports club, association, or school has allocated you with a PhotoCard Digital ID you can access your PhotoCard through the mobile app for your organisation. So the first step is to install the mobile app on your phone if you don't already have it.
Once you've installed the mobile app on your phone, set it to the name of your organisation (you only need to do this once). You should see your organisation logo. If your organisation subscribes to PhotoCards, then a PhotoCard button will be visible:
Tap the PhotoCard button and enter your name and date of birth as they would appear on your membership registration record with your organisation, then tap Search.
Your PhotoCard should appear. If it does not appear, then check with your sports club, association, or school that they have enabled a PhotoCard for you, and that the name and date of birth they have for your membership record is the same as the details you enter into the search fields. Note that you only need to do this once each year. From then onwards, the mobile app will remember your PhotoCard and automatically display it whenever you tap the PhotoCard button.
Note: If you wish to return to the home screen of the mobile app or clear the PhotoCard from your phone, then tap the three vertical dots at the top right of the screen to display a menus that enables these options:

For administrators: How to set up PhotoCards for your members
Administrators at sports clubs, associations and schools control who gets a PhotoCard. The first step is to ensure that your organisation subscribes to PhotoCards from www.photocard.co.nz
Then you can turn on any of the online registration databases in your Sporty.co.nz dashboard to enable PhotoCards for all or any people within that database. For example, clubs would typically turn on PhotoCards for their player registration database for the current season, and the would typically create an online registration form for general members such as parents and supporters.
To turn on a form/database for PhotoCards, login to Sporty and go to your Dashboard, then click the Online Registrations tile:
Then click the pencil button beside the form/database you want to enable for PhotoCards:
Then click the orange Advanced Options button to expose these options and tick the Allow PhotoCard checkbox and the Save the form:
For PhotoCards to work, the form must have the minimum fields of First name, Last name, Email, Date of Birth field and Photo. The Date of Birth field must be set to be mandatory.
When you tick Allow PhotoCard you choose whether to have the PhotoCard automatically enabled as people register (Registration is completed option), or, where you would manually enable each PhotoCard (Manually set option). If the Photocard is enabled on a National database, there is an additional option that allows you to only enable Photocards when you have accepted the player as a registered player for your organisation, and registration status is changed from Pending to Active (Registration is set to Active).
The default option is Registration is completed.
If you enable PhotoCards on an existing form that has already had people register, you will need to manually tick on PhotoCards on for people within the database associated with that form. To do this, click the name of the form from the Online Registrations area to view the people in that database. Then tick the checkbox to the right of a person's name to enable or disable their PhotoCard:
Display of PhotoCard
Your PhotoCards automatically format with your organisation name and logo. It includes each person's name, date of birth, and photo as they appear in the database that you have enabled for PhotoCards. Each PhotoCard includes a unique bar code for each person that is a machine readable version of their registration transaction number (E.g. SP2397199).
Display of Expiry date
If you want an expiry date displayed on the PhotoCard, first add a Custom Field to the registration form named Expiry Date. Then, when an expiry date is entered into that field this will display on the PhotoCard. Typically the Expiry Date field is set as an Admin Only field so the site administrator controls the date entered.
