Ability to create a new inventory by scanning UPC

I would love to have the ability to create a new item and then scan the UPC instead of having to manually type it in.

    Hey @ridehousecycles

    This is possible as long as the item is not in the "new item" phase (as in, once a description has been added and the changes have been saved for the first time ). You can then scan-in the UPC when the cursor is in the UPC field and it will input the number.

    Hope this helps!

    The barcode scanner is effectively an automatic keyboard.

    If you have a UPC, or serial number that is a barcode, simply highlight the text box and scan the code.

    With any luck LS might allow the software to have the ipad cameras to scan barcodes soon.
