Note 1: If you can choose the type of barcode to use, we highly recommend 2D barcodes for accuracy and speed, especially QR codes. However, CodeREADr can scan up to 50 different barcode languages. So we’ve got you covered!
Note 2: If you order QR Code labels from a printing company, be sure they use Model 2 (or later). Also, before deploying your 1D or 2D barcode labels, test scanning with the iOS and/or Android OS devices you plan to use.
Note 3: If you order pre-printed labels, FOBs, or cards you will likely want to order extra cards for future use. The barcode (or QR code) “value” on all cards should be numeric or alphanumeric, random or sequential. For example, if you are creating an ID card, the value might be “a_00001”. If you know the name of the person in advance, you can put that on the card, too. However, you don’t have to do that. Instead, in your uploaded CodeREADr CSV file, you could have the barcode value in column 1 and the person’s name and other personal info in column 2. In that way, the app user will see the name after scanning the barcode.
You can use Mail Merge to insert your exported images into documents, emails, etc. While there Mail Merge applications available for Excel, Word, etc., look here for instructions on how to Mail Merge with Gmail and Google Sheets.
Developers can use an API call to insert barcode values singularly or in bulk to databases on our servers and then use another API call to generate a QR code to display each value in electronic media, such as email, messaging, and web pages.
