How to create a Barcode

Barcode Generation


The TrackVia mobile app provides the ability to create barcodes.  To enable this setting, you will need to edit a text field's settings on a form.  




Available only on mobile, any properly formatted text field can become a QR, UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN 8, EAN 13, Code39, Code93, Code128, Aztec or ITF. Each barcode type has certain standards which are honored by TrackVia. See below for instructions on formatting fields. 

QR Codes are recommended, as they are fast and easy to scan on both curved and flat surfaces. Here is an image of a QR code on the TrackVia iOS app:
