    Barcode scanner that can be used on mobile devices

    Asked by Karen  on October 28, 2016 at 10:54 AM

    I need a way to have a phone (iphone or android) scan a barcode, provide the number that the bar code represents, incorporate this input into a form, have some additional fields on the form to allow additional user information, and then send that form to a common email address.

    Is this doable in jot form?

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately, we currently do not have a field or a widget that would let you scan a bar code and put it on the form. We have one, but it is flash based and cannot be used on a mobile device.

    Let me request this to our developers. We can't promise any timeframe for this, but if there are updates, you should know it through this thread.
