Scanning one or more bar codes in mobile app

    Asked on June 18, 2019 at 10:19 AM


    I want to create a form where the user will have to scan one or more bar codes.  Is there a way to add a button to scan a second barcode or something?

    This is for proving delivery of packages.  So the delivery guy might have anywhere from 1 to 15 packages to deliver for each customer.  And in each delivery we want to show one signature from the customer instead of having to sign for each package. 

    Any thoughts on how to set this up?

    I have checked your POD APP form. You can add 15 different barcode scanner widgets and show them according to a dropdown which shows the number of the packages. 
    Please look at these steps:
    1. Add a dropdown and set options. 15608731686.png15608731987.png
    2. Add 15 different barcode scanner widgets. 15608732138.png
    3. Create these conditions. We will show the barcode scanner widgets according to the dropdown. 15608732459.pngYou need to make this for all options. 156087326110.pngThis is my demo form.
    You can clone it and customize.

    Many thanks!
    If the barcode scanner does not work (ie the barcode is damaged) can the
    user just manually type in the number in the same field? Or does that need
    to be a new field?

    You need a new field for that. Just add a textbox for all barcodes and add a question if they want to fill in barcodes manually and show the textbox so they can type the barcodes.

    Ok. That is what I figured!
    Just hoping it was built into the widget.
    I've used barcode scanning on phones before and often we have to type in
    due to smuges. Would be a good addition to the widget.
