I am pleased to announce that starting AgilePoint NX 7.0 SU2, AgilePoint NX mobile apps will include a new feature of scanning Barcode and QR code images, which allows the scanning and reading of Barcodes and QR Codes directly in eForms on iOS and Android apps for AgilePoint NX.
This has been a highly sort after feature among customer base specially the ones who have technicians working in the field or shop floor.
To enable barcode scanning in your mobile eForm, you’ll need to use the textbox control and check the checkbox called “Enable Barcode Scanner In Mobile App“. Once you open this form in AgilePoint NX mobile app, it shows a scanner icon which once clicked invokes the camera and scans the Barcode/QR code and populates that value in the corresponding textbox.
The following are some of the Barcode formats are supported as of today.
QR Code (Mobile/Smartphone)
HIBC LIC Aztec
HIBC LIC Data Matrix
HIBC LIC PDF417
HIBC LIC QR-Code
This list keeps growing so please check AgilePoint documentation for the up to date list.
Here is a short video on how this feature works.
