Scan QR code to create IP - FSA Windows

Scan QR code to create IP - FSA Windows

We need capability on FSA App to scan QR Code to create Installed Products. We realize that there are a lot of errors on the Serial Numbers entered by the FSR and causing issues data quality issues.

FSA Windows does not support QR/Barcode scanning now. Laptop FSA should support this feature as most of the laptops come with a camera.

What is the underlying problem do you intend to solve with this idea?

What would this look like? Would it be a new IP creation but you would want field engineers to be able to scan in the serial number?

Hi Joseph

I think we have 2 use cases here

1 - add serial number to an IP that has been created - to update the record

2 - Create a new IP

Hello Cathy Asher​. For the first item you want to achieve, the FSA Android and iOS applications currently have the functionality to scan in QR codes. You can read more about it in the FSA User Guide page 217 (except below). For the second item, I would build a Create IP from Location SFM, then upon creation within the SFM screen, the Engineer could scan the barcode using the application.
