Allow identification numbers to contain special characters
Identification Numbers are also used for barcodes in EZOfficeInventory. If you have a an Identification Number associated to an item and you scan the barcode with the exact sequence, this item is pulled up. Similarly you can generate barcode labels.
If your sequence numbers have special characters, you can add a custom field called e.g. ID and track them using this filed. Custom fields can be configured from Items → Custom Attributes
Can you send a close picture of the barcode that you're attempting to add? (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org)
Barcodes don't have special characters in them expect the - separator, which is already supported in Identification Numbers.
If I add a custom field as you suggest, would I be able to associate it to a barcode? My guess is no. Therefore, it would be nice if the Identification Number field accepted special characters so that the scan barcode functionality could be used.
