In addition to the feature, where you app-users can see within the app what has been scanned and unscanned, on the CodeREADr website’s Databases page, there is an Advanced Search option for administrators which has some powerful features:
A – You can search by Scanned values (accounted for) and Unscanned values (unaccounted for) and see the results directly on the Database page. The results (a ‘Disposition List’) will update in real-time from all app-user devices, providing the device has Internet connectivity. Simply refresh the page to update that view.
The scanned/unscanned status is based on the Service you selected. If the tasks performed for these Services repeat daily, then you will need a new Service for each day. Therefore, this feature may not be appropriate for repetitive tasks unless you are willing to use the ‘duplicate’ option on the Services page to duplicate the Service daily or for a week in advance.
Note: Under Advanced Search, you must select the service to check against and then scroll down the web page to see the results.
B – If you create a password-protected Share Link, you can view the status from any web browser without signing into CodeREADr.com.
Importantly, you can share this link with your app-users, team members, and clients. Simply, issue them an app username and password for the specific Service you created.
Note: Share Links are only helpful if you want to share the Disposition List. Those with access will be able to view the list, but not edit it or download it. A good practice would be to name the Share Link after the specific task or the Service selected.
To filter the result the app user can search by all, search by barcode value, and search by the response. This is an important feature because users can search within the database for unscanned values filtered by a specific parameter.
For example, if your response text looked like this “Order A, Route 1”, “Order B, Route 1″, Order C, Route 2”, “Order D, Route 2”, etc. you can use the filter to find out how many items still need to be delivered for Order A or for Route 1.
Note: Searching for scanned/unscanned values needs to be a Validate Scans service type. When the service is used only once, duplicate scans should be set to Valid. When the service will be used repetitively (hourly, daily, etc.), you should have duplicate scans set to Invalid and reset accordingly (hourly, daily, etc.).
Scan links are web links using a custom URI scheme that define the scan value the app should receive when the link is visited. It’s normally used for replacing the app’s default Lookup view. We allow this by displaying a URL you provide in its place.
Simply, create web pages with links using the custom scheme. When an app-user clicks a Scan Link, the app will handle it as a scan submitted to the currently selected service. To enable:
