    How to Autofill A Database

    With our Autofill feature, you can create a set of generated barcode values in seconds. Typically, this is only to be used in niche cases where the barcode values are not determined or have yet to be made, and need a value assigned to them in order to be made. The string of characters we generate will auto-populate the database and be matched with any response value we might want to associate with this group.

    Autofill Demo
    1. Click the ‘Databases’ tab on the Navigation Bar near the top of the screen and choose the database you want to fill.
    2. Click the AutoFill tab
    3. Customize your values using the different tools in the Autofill page (as explained below)
    4. Enter the number of values you want to fill the database with
    5. Choose whether these values will scan as Valid or Invalid
    6. Click AutoFill database and you will see the message below.
    7. Refresh the page in about a minute or so and you will see the values that the Autofill feature has added to your database. You can now view and download images of these generated values for your use.

    • In the first option for these values, if you select Sequential, the values will be created in a sequence (i.e. 0001, 0002, 0003 etc.) If you select Random, the values will be created randomly (i.e. a4Fd, 6HM7, kbR4, etc.)
    • Selecting Numeric means your values will only contain numbers, while selecting Alphanumeric means your values will contain both letters and numbers.
    • In the dropdown, you can choose how long your values will be, 10 means your values will be 10 characters long.
    • In the first text field, you can enter text that will be incorporated into the value with an underscore
    • Below that, you can choose whether to incorporate the text before (text_abc123) or after (abc123_text) the value.
    • Lastly, you can enter a custom response that will show up every time you scan these values.
