Create a Service

You create Services with a custom workflow enabling your authorized app users capture and collect data exactly how you want them to. Each time your app users sign into the codeREADr app, they need to select one or more of the services you created. The following are the standard Service types.

Record Scans

We refer the barcode value scanned as a scan record. The scan record can include the Service Name, User Name, Timestamp, GPS location (option). Also, it can have as much data you want the app user to collect after each scan.

Validate Scans

When using a Validation service type, the system validates the barcode value scanned against a database online or offline. With secondary validations, you can extend validation to include checking the number of scans made during date and time periods.

These basic validations help your authorized app-users accomplish their assigned task. Also, these will cover access control, attendance, asset/inventory tracking, and more use cases.

Valid: The value has been validated against the validation database and in fact exists in the database. You can present the app-user with specific information relating to the barcode scanned. Then, collect new data specifically associated with it.

Invalid: The value does not exist within the validation database. You can present the app-user with prompts to collect new data specifically associated with the barcode scanned.

Invalid Duplicate: The value has been scanned before under the same service. The app user will see when that value has been scanned before and optionally present the app-user with a special response.

Advanced: Secondary, Conditional Validations allow you to set counts based on time, date and specified days. Look here for details on conditional validation.

Offline Services

Your app-user(s) must sign in while they have Internet connectivity, so the service you’ve assigned to them loads to the app. Also, they should select at least one assigned service and scan a demo barcode to ensure that the scan engine is activated. The barcode can be one you provide as part of your instructions. Also, it can be any barcode they can find.

Thereafter the app-user will not have to sign into the app with connectivity for up to 5-days. However, if you change any attributes for your services or make database changes, they will once again need Internet connectivity.
