Bulk Barcode scanning on the mobile

  • 1.  Bulk Barcode scanning on the mobile

    Posted 20 days ago
    I am needing to scan a pallet full of barcodes into an inventory system .. does anyone else have experience with doing this using the mobile app?  So far, I can only figure out a 3-tap minimum solution of tapping into the field, tapping the barcode button, then tapping save / next.  With 300 barcodes to scan, per pallet .. I'm thinking I might just be better off buying a barcode scanner.

    Unfortunately, I think it is going to be a 3 tap minimum. In order to do bulk bar code scanning, then I think that you're going to want to buy a barcode scanner, and then use it to input into a spreadsheet, and then bulk upload the barcode data into the table.

    I believe that the last pipelines demo call I attended with QuickBase staff they demonstrated an amazing method of using an inexpensive barcode scanner handle attached to an iPhone / Android phone and they were able to do multiple scans going into a big Text field. Then the user would hit enter and I think the demo of the pipeline was to iterate over those records and create individual records. 

    I will bet that was recorded and maybe someone here remembers who did that pipelines demo.   If you can get hold them them they could have some ideas for you.  If I recall correctly they might've needed to have a bit of crazy code to do that parsing but somebody has already thought this through.

    The organizer of that Zoom call a couple of weeks ago  was was Matthew Birsch.  So I would guess his email address is mbirsch@quickbase.com.  It was also probably recorded.

    @Malcolm McDonald 

    After you watch the video can you post back and show the time of when they talk about that quick scan method?  And obviously confirm that the video covers what I remembered? That part was near the beginning of the presentation I believe.  ​

    Hi Folks –

     

    Also found a talk by Scott Burday in Empower 2022 -- https://university.quickbase.com/empower-2022/1235622

     

    Starts getting into examples / demos at the 20:00m zone

     

    On the zoom recording; Matt starts to talk about barcode scanning bulk scans into a scan staging table at around 49:00. He didn't finish his thought on the pipeline build unfortunately .. but it's enough to know it'll be possible!
