TIPS

  • Tip 1: If you already entered mice and scanned them but do not see the colored square on your Mouse List, you need to:

1.  Select all mice from your Mouse List and click Edit Mice

2.  On the Group Edit Mouse page, select all mice again and click Save+Back


You should see the squares now. The reason they weren't showing before is the tags were scanned in prior to the RapID Tags setting being enabled on your preferences - so they weren't recognized as being RapID Tags. Going forward, the squared will show immediately after scanning and saving.
