QR Barcode for User Login
Would you be able to generate a QR barcode assigned to a user? We would like to be able to scan a user barcode and the equipment/assets they are checking out in one shot. Or a QR barcode that would automatically log in a user. Please let me know if this is possible or a feature I overlooked.
This is possible. Here is how:
- There is a field called Identification Number with every member
- If your staff have ID cards with barcodes, you can enter the barcode sequence in this field. If they don’t you can add a unique number in this field and then create barcodes online for these number.
e.g. http://www.barcodesinc.com/generator/index.php can be used to make barcodes
- Now on the mobile app, when you’re checking out items, you can touch the camera icon on the ‘Checkout to’ field. This will invoke the mobile camera and you can scan the barcode of a member to checkout items to him/her
This will be the checkout experience on mobile:
Scan a bunch of items which you want to check out.
Then choose checkout from actions.
On ‘checkout to’ field, touch the camera icon and scan the barcode of the person you want to check out items to.
Hit checkout button and you’re good to go
Can you have a look at this post: http://blog.ezofficeinventory.com/label-scanning-shopping-cart-released-productivity-boost-alert/
Are you not seeing these options? And when you check-out items, do you see the 'Checkout to' field? It may be the case that you're logged in as a staff user. Staff users can only check out items to themselves. They've limited visibility as per your Company Settings.

I have downloaded the iPhone app and it is very limited. I am unable to located the "checkout to" field nor the camera icon associated with it. Is this an option in the android version if there is one?
