Scan QR/Bar Code Code to for Entries (Text, number etc)

Scan QR/Bar Code Code to for Entries (Text, number etc)

July 24, 2019 at 6:11pm
Hi. Scanning QR codes are very popular. This feature can be used in event, class, or company check-in attendance, shop inventory check-in/out, equipment rental
I'm building an app for self check-in and would be very helpful. Consider an user want to drop off an item at a warehouse. They scan the QR code equipment and QR code of the warehouse and the warehouse's owner can just confirm the "transaction".

I would like this for checking-in attendance

Very interested in seeing your app! I know several volunteer organizations that would certainly be able to make good use of such a mobile app.

So do I but my idea for the application is based on scanning a QR code. So, until this is not possible I cannot develop the attending app

Id like to +1 this request. Working on several apps for teachers to maintain their classroom inventory, it just makes sense... that being said, while we wait for the developers to get to this, there is such thing as a keyboard wedge for your mobile device. For iOS I’m using a free one called ScanKey. Worth a shot.

So is the idea, as in your example, is that the equipment would have a QR code sticker on it. There would also be a QR code placard at the warehouse. The app user would use his Glide app and open an input form call maybe "Deliver Equipment" . There would be two inputs, one for the equipment code and one for the warehouse code. You want the Glide app to have access to the phone camera and have it recognize the QR codes. Did I get that right?

yes you are right! stickers with QR codes will be printed on equipment. QR code also be printed and place at a warehouse or location. by just scanning QR codes, users do not need to manually input the code of the items or places. That also improve the security.

I created 2 apps base on 1 google sheet: ayacup.glideapp.io (users) and ayavendor.glideapp.io (for vendors). Our project AYA cup wants to eliminate single-use plastic cups. We lend out reusable cups at coffee shops, users place a deposit for each cup. Users can request to borrow cups, use it and return it any any location. User can operate transactions and vendor can verify them through aya apps. The current user flow is: go to a coffee shop, ask for the code of the shop, input the code of the shop, input the number of the cups that they want to borrow or return. It would be great if users can just scan QR code of the shop.

So bottom line (edit: didn't finish my thought) You would like Glide to somehow enable input via QR code. This would obviously have to be done by Glide somehow interfacing with the phones camera.

We're working on an inventory management template at the moment and was just saying this to the other day. It would be cool for QRs to populate multiple columns to make user input super easy.

That would be so helpful. QR codes have been very popular in this side of the world (Asia - yeah).

I would like to +1 this. I'm working on a shopping list app, it would be super convenient to scan barcodes off items instead of typing in manually

as such, I can't do it by just snapping a picture

I too am wanting to create an app that my technicians can use to deliver equipment back to a customer. They would scan the barcode and check it back in to the customer. Here's to hoping there is a solution soon that works with both QR and barcodes.
