Cool new stuff arrived to do barcode scanning. It is really fast. Have a look on this inventory scanner app.
this app is a further development of the app shown in this post
Somebody might have hoped for a QR code scanner - but I’m sure this will arrive soon as well (hope
I’m a bit sad about the number of barcode scans that can be made on pro subscription apps - only 1000/mo. Maybe Glide chose an expensive supplier for this functionality.
I wish it could read PDF417 barcodes.
That could be nice as well
Nice demo! Like the keypad layout as well. Minimalistically beautiful and efficient!
Very nice! Love the keypad as well!
yes, that scans/month limitation will keep us from using this unfortunately.
how many scan can use for a basis/ Pro app ?
10 scans for basic (so you can see what it does). 1000 for pro subscription. This is per month.
Ya…not enough scans for pro for sure. I have 500 students in my building alone. I was hoping to use this for student attendance (each student already has a barcode on their ID). They’d scan their ID when entering the classroom to automatically take attendance for that class.
So, each student would be able to scan for only 2 of their 5 periods that day and then not again until next month…
@Krivo I just tried to add this, however, nothing is getting entered to chosen column:
I added a button in a form
Attached an action workflow with 1 action - barcode scan
Barcode scan attached to a column (number column type)
When I scan - it goes green - says complete - nothing added to column
Is there something I’m missing here? E.g. a step? Or column type issue?
Or perhaps it’s an action workflow bug?
Thanks for any thoughts.
hmm, I wonder if that limit is actually enforced?
Easy enough to find out
After you easily scan 1001 items, let me know
Don’t even need to scan once to find out
Curiosity got the better of me, so I just had a peek.
And yes, it looks like it is being enforced.
@qb15 Have you tried to click on the screen with the green line. Sometimes that helps, I think
By the way - I haven’t been able to get bar code scanning working with Glide tables. The button doesn’t show up.
@mark is that expected?
And then it is time off for another month
Glide must have chosen an expensive subsupplier as the limit is 1000 for pro account.
@Robert_Petitto Inspiration also used for the calculator - and the barcode scanner could also be adjusted with the features from the calculator app
I made my calculator app copyable - so you can have a look under the hood.

If you feel llike it, try to use the barcode scanner of cellartracker app (or see below for a simple use). Looks very simmilar to the one in Glide. The scanner is lightning fast.
Also notice the text displayed on the scanning page.
Think I didn’t clarify clearly enough.
It shows success on the scan, but nothing is saved. So it’s a saving to tables problem by the looks of it.
