Within the "Drivers App", the driver will be able to read the barcode belonging to any stop from the application.

The driver will be able to mark as completed the tasks that have barcodes by scanning them from his terminal.

How to enable this functionality?

  1. Enable Tasks by accessing from Project Settings > Tasks.

  2. Once you have completed step 1, enable Barcode.

How do barcodes work?

Within a stop, we create one or more tasks and enter all the information: name, barcode and comments. Learn how to create tasks clicking here.

Once we send the link to the drivers, inside the Drivers, confirm the stop. Next, the usual screen will appear with comments, signatures, images, etc. We click on Scan codes. Now, select the type of code with the drop-down menu (the type of barcode will be stored in the driver's terminal so that you will only have to make this selection the first time.) And bring the code closer to the reader.

It will read the codes automatically: it will go from one barcode to the next one automatically, without the need for us to do anything.

Once the code is read, the task is automatically marked as completed and is circled in green.
