1. This Photo Postback feature has been replaced with the curated Table Builder service type which significantly improves the functionality.
2. The Webify option below continues to be a supported feature.
First, you can use the CodeREADr app to scan a barcode and take a photo, and capture associated data. Here, we refer to using it for ID verification. Also, you can use it to capture and view captured photos of any asset, location, and more.
With photo postback, the system auto-inserts the scanned ID into a cloud-based database. Also, it will store the corresponding photo in a special folder on your Dropbox account or FTP server. Then, it will directly link to the scanned barcode’s value (ID).
When you scan that ID again, the app will display the photo along with any other content you want to display to the app user at the point of service.
Because the ID is auto-inserted into the associated database, you can start with a blank database. We detailed the database building process here – Database Builder with Postback URL. You will need two services, both associated with the same database. The first service captures the photo and links it to the barcode value in the database. You can use the other service to show the captured photo when you scan that barcode value.
