To scan assets

  1. On the barcode device, click Start > Programs > Symantec Barcoder.

  2. On the Home screen, click one of the following:

  3. Scan the barcode.

    The Barcoder Handheld application supports the following scanning modes:

    Auto Scan

    Auto Scan is enabled by default for both standard templates and custom templates and lets you scan a barcode regardless of the current field selected. It automatically updates the selected values for association pickers based on the type of the resource that was scanned. For example, if a Location association exists on the template, scanning a location barcode automatically updates the Location field with that resource.

    Direct Scan

    Direct Scan lets you scan directly in the currently focused field. To enable Direct Scan, click Menu > Scan Mode > Direct.

  4. Repeat this procedure until all of the assets are scanned.
