    QUESTION #3 - In some cases, we will be using bar codes with our inventory.  As such, we would like to input the bar code into the form.  We will be giving our workers "bar code guns / devices" and will laser capture the bar code.  Currently we use a bar code device and it automatically fills our google sheets.  If we use your JotForm, will the JotForm receive the bar code similar to how google sheets receives the bar code? IE: if your JotForm capatable with bar code entries from a bar code device?

    Unfortunately it is not possible to use a barcode gun to autofill the fields in jotform. You might need to hire a programmer that can connect the form with the barcode gun, then allow the form to perform a database lookup that will autofill the fields whenever a bar code is scanned by the gun. You will also need to download the full source code of the form so your programmer can add the necessary codes. Regards.
