I would love to use Retool for inventory management, only thing holding me back is barcodes. I use my camera for scanning barcodes currently, would be great if there was a button to simply open the camera app & scan. Any chance this is an option with Retool?
Hi Jon! One easy way to get this functionality to work is to use a custom keyboard that supports barcode scanning.
• Here’s a link to an Android keyboard that supports this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tecit.android.barcodekbd.demo&hl=en
• And for the iOS equivalent https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/scankey-barcode-ocr-keyboard/id1356206918?mt=8
Do you think that might work for you @jon ?
Let me try and I’ll get back to you, thanks for the response!
Alternatively, could one insert a custom React component to do this?
As far as building internal tools go, if retool had a feature to do this, it would open up a whole new world.
I agree, need to have a built in web cam feature to capture images.
