How can I use a barcode scanner?

Barcode scanners can be used in all editions of inFlow to scan your items during sales or purchase orders as well as selecting them in most product tables. To use the barcode scanner to select your products you must first save the barcodes in the corresponding product record.

To save your barcodes:

  1. Open the product record.
  2. Select the Extra Info tab.
  3. Click into the barcode field at the top of the window.
  4. Scan your item.
  5. Click Save

To select your product:

  1. Open the sales order (purchase order, adjust stock window etc.)
  2. Click into the first cell in the table.
  3. Scan your item.
  4. Scan your next item, and so on until you are finished.
