We are very excited we released barcode scanning. By using barcode scanners you’ll prevent human errors while handing out or taking back your products.
To help you get started we wrote a quick walthrough on how to use barcodes with Booqable.
Adding barcodes to products
You can add barcodes to a product or stock items by clicking “Add barcode” in the product inventory screen.
Product barcode: The product barcode identifies a product. It’s used to start/stop products in bulk or plan products in advance of which you don’t know the stock items you’ll be handing out.
Stock item barcode: The stock item barcode is used to identify a stock item. You can use this barcode to plan stock items in advance and if you setup a product to be trackable you need to scan this barcode while starting/stopping products on an order.
Generating or adding existing barcode
Select the type of barcode you want to add and scan an existing barcode to attach it to a product or stock item. When you haven’t labeled your products with barcodes yet you can leave the field blank to let Booqable create a barcode for you.
Currently we support the following barcode types:
Let us know at email@example.com if your type of barcode is not supported and we’ll add it as soon as possible.
