ProTip: Speed Up Your Work with Barcode Scanning in Your Mobile Forms

Our Barcode feature allows you to use your phone or tablet’s camera to scan barcodes, and store them on your mobile forms.

Barcode Captured

To get started using our new Barcode field in your mobile forms, simply drag the new Barcode field onto a Template. Voilà, you are now setup to start scanning barcodes using the camera on your mobile device!

This field will look the same as any other text field on your form until…

Scan Barecode

You tap on the field to open the camera barcode scanner! Simply center the yellow line on the barcode you wish to scan and wait for the scanner to capture the data from the barcode.

Barcode Captured

Once you’ve captured the barcode, simply click ‘Done’ and see the data populated back into your form! If you have a QuickFill Lookup setup, it will automatically populate the appropriate fields on your form.
