We are looking at setting up asset tracking and want to utilize the barcode capabilities of Qbase. This is probably a dumb question but does anyone have any advice on the best method to print the codes? We will use portable printers but does anyone have experience or knowledge on how to do it; is it as simple as buying a portable barcode printer, connecting your phone to it and printing directly from the record where the barcode has been generated?
