Add Barcode Operation

 

Touch > Product, Add Barcode (#508) and Barcode Entry (#538) POS Keys.

 

Description

 

Used to add a Barcode, using the String Product/PLU or Add Barcode POS Key, or to enter/scan a Barcode to retrieve a Product at the SwiftPOS Touch terminal.

 

To Be Considered

 

  1. This feature does not work when:


    1. Products that do not exist in the SwiftPOS Back Office, ie. adding a Barcode to new Products.
    2. The Barcode scanned is already assigned to another Product.


  1. Given this feature can only be used during a sale at the SwiftPOS Touch terminal, and if it is being used to only add Barcodes (and not to sell Products as well), then make sure all items are credited to reverse the sale of the Products for which the Barcodes were added. This will ensure SOH levels remain the same.

 


Pre-Requisites

 

  1. Create a Add Barcode POS Key. This can be done by ensuring a Product POS Key, linked to the Barcode System PLU (PLU 19994) is added to the appropriate Layout using the Keyboard Designer. Also ensure the String PLU setting is selected for this Barcode System PLU. This will enable the entering of a Barcode.
  2. Ensure the Add Barcode & Barcode Entry POS Keys are added to the appropriate Layout using the Keyboard Designer.
