Scanning Parts with Mobile Manager

Scanning Parts with Mobile Manager

Postby ricmorin » Sat Jun 24, 2017 8:11 am

I really love the ability to scan parts into an order using Mobile Manager. What I don't like is there is no 'scan now' button, but rather the software scans when it recognizes a barcode. That's great when there is one barcode in the visible window(like a VIN), but parts drawers don't usually work that way. I may have 16, 20 or 24 different parts in any particular drawer, all with a barcode associated. Trying to scan the correct one is a nightmare; nearly always scanning the wrong part. Could it be a simple matter of having a button to click instead of letting the software doing the clicking? Help.

Again another great point!
I will put it in to development to see what they can do.
I know what you mean about the parts drawer and bar codes.
I need to communicate this to the developers. Can you send a picture or two to my jburkhauser@boltontechnology.com address so I can share it?

Thanks

Here is a typical parts drawer with multiple barcodes.
