Barcode Scanner App Triggers Email and SMS Alerts
Trigger email or SMS alerts with a barcode scanner based on the content within the scan record
Send all scan records
There are two standard options.
All uploaded scan records are sent to a specified email address. Generally this is used when uploading bulk scan records at the end of a day, shift, etc. You can find this option on the Advanced step when creating or editing your task’s workflow.
Send when certain conditions are met
Uploaded scan records are filtered before sending a formatted email to a specified email address or SMS recipient upon meeting specific conditions. The alert is sent when the content of a scan record meets pre-set conditions.
The conditions can be based on the barcode value, app-user, task, ID/asset description and any other data collected by the app user after each scan (e.g. text entry, menu choice, timestamp, GPS coordinate, address, secondary barcode scan value, etc.).
For this option to auto-alert, you will need to use the Zapier API connector. Step-by-step instructions. [SMS alerts may not be supported in your country.]
Custom option – use Google Sheets scripts
For custom alerts you can use the Zapier API connector for automated alerts or you can use Google Sheet’s IMPORTDATA option and create your own triggers. There are many Google Sheets consultants that can help you set up wide variety of alerts.
