    Would you like to populate a form by scanning a barcode with a barcode reader device, photo capture the barcode, or something else?

    Could you please provide us with a bit more information on your use case? Then, we will see if there are any options available.

    We have a tool that can generate bar codes (and print stickers) that can contain the customer info (name, phone, email, etc.) or rental item information (inventory tag, date purchased, etc.) and we would l to be able to scan the customer info and have the form auto fill from the scan. If possible we also like to add the rental item information (via scanning barcode) for quick checkout.  Basically a system similar to a library checkout process.

    Thank in advance,

    Hello Chase,

    Have you checked our "QR Code" widget already? It will create a mobile phone readable barcode. Do check and see if this fits into your requirement. 

    You may also like to take a look at our "QR Code Reader" widget as well.

    Please be noted that it is read the data from any external sources or form the previous submission data.

    Thank you!
