Bad Barcode

Evergreen v.2.7


Sometimes when an item is scanned in ItemStatus, CheckInItems, CheckOutItems, etc. a "Bad Barcode" alert will display. Typically this happens when the StrictBarcode option has been checked and the item being scanned is an older barcode. Strict Barcode tells the system to look for a specific type of code - however, these older barcodes use a different code. These older barcodes ARE compatible with Evergreen - simply uncheck Strict Barcode

Bad barcode alert

When Strict Barcode is checked and an older item is scanned, you will see this alert. To continue with the transaction click Accept Barcode.

Uncheck Strict Barcode

To prevent this from happening again, uncheck Strict Barcode. Once Strict Barcode is checked or unchecked, it will remain checked or unchecked every time the function is opened.
