Hybrid Method to Validate Tickets

Hybrid validation technology verifies ticket authenticity and stops duplicates both on-device and online simultaneously. If the scanned ticket ID is not in the synced on-device database, the mobile app automatically also checks the online database for that ID. This method ensures no tickets bought on-site are turned down.

Counted Quantities Verified Based on Pre-Selected Margins of Error

Use a simple, Google Sheets “Cycle Count Extension” to show physical counting errors. Cycle counting errors are automatically highlighted in a worksheet based on a percentage of errors or a specified error quantity. Errors can be double-checked for accuracy. The quantity can then be adjusted or accepted as counted for re-importing as an updated inventory database.

Nov 11 2022

Custom Question Feature Enables Dependent Questions with HTML

The Custom Question feature is very popular, especially when complex data collection is required. Let’s take dependent questions, for example. The selection of certain answer options from one “parent” question might prompt the app-user to be presented with another set of answer options for a “child” question depending on the answer to the parent question.  The answers to these questions and further dependent questions all can become part of the scan record.

April 30 2019

Photos Saved to Dropbox or FTP Servers Now Include Barcode Value Scanned for Easy Indexing and Search

In the past, when a photo was taken as part of a scan record, a URL was created that allowed administrators to directly view the photo on CodeREADr’s Scans page as well as export scan records including a clickable link to those photos. We now also include the barcode value when photos are stored in your Dropbox account or on your FTP server. In that way, you can easily index and search for photos based on the barcode value associated with the photo.

Another New “Databases” Feature: View Scanned and Unscanned Totals and Share Report via a Web Link

On the Database page, the Advanced Search option shows totals for Scanned and Unscanned values against a specific Service and now also allows you to share that data using a password-protected web link.

This is helpful in the ‘live events’ business, especially for capacity considerations. This feature is also very helpful for asset tracking, security patrols, facility maintenance, and other applications where management and clients (option) can see the current status and take appropriate actions as needed.

Nov 19 2018

New “Databases” Feature: Sort by Scanned and Unscanned Values for a Specific Database and Service

On the Database page, you can now use the Advanced Search option for Scanned and Unscanned values against a specific service (task). This is very useful for attendance tracking (who’s there, who’s not there); mustering (who’s been accounted for, who’s still missing); asset tracking (what’s been accounted for, what’s left to track); and facility/security patrols (what’s been checked, whats not yet checked). Soon we will also launch an option to share those reports via a web link with any authorized person.

Oct 12 2018

Barcode Scanner Modes and Smart Scan Launched

The iOS and Android mobile CodeREADr apps and CodeREADr web service have launched sophisticated barcode scanning technology. Here are some of the highlights:

Administrator-defined “Scanning Modes” improve the speed and accuracy of data capture.
* Batch Mode – read up to 100 barcodes in seconds in a single camera view
* Framing Mode – resizable frame only reads a barcode within the frame
* Targeting Mode – resizable aimer only reads a barcode when it touches the target barcode
* Selecting Mode – read all barcodes in the camera view and select the right one(s)

Advanced “Smart Scan” technology auto-captures the right barcode(s) in a camera view.
* Administrator defines scanner profiles
* Create filters to match barcode type(s) and characteristics (prefix, suffix, etc.)
* Create sets of filters and matches when the context changes

Sept 28 2018

Custom On-Device Validation Launched

The new Custom On-Device Validation (COV) feature allows you to change the status of and response to a scan based on context.

Examples include:* Changing the scan status (e. g. Valid to Invalid) based on the answer submitted to an app-user prompt; or when certain text is detected within the scanned value or response
* Handling encrypted barcodes
* Custom A/B compare to indicate matches
* Custom configurations are hosted for you

You can write the script or we can write it for you. An important benefit is the script is hosted on our server, so you don’t need your own server to enable custom validations.

July 19 2018

Encrypted QR Codes Decrypted In-App

An encrypted QR code (or barcode) can now be decrypted in-app by the CodeREADr – the enterprise barcode scanning app – to show authorized app users decrypted content and for administrators to view reports with decrypted content. Whereas when a consumer barcode or QR code scanning app reads the same QR code the content will be encrypted. Encryption is particularly useful when IDs, badges, or other electronic or printed media could expose personally identifiable information not allowed under GDPR and similar privacy regulations.
