Understanding and using the Barcode element

The barcode field allows you to scan or manually entry a bar code or a QR code on your form. You work in a paper mill and you're responsible for processing orders. The barcode field will help you to scan products quickly. If in addition you join your bar code field to a referential list you will save time! This combination will help you automate the completion of fields linked to bar codes.
