Searching for a barcode value helps you ensure that the asset has not already been added or that the barcode value is not already in use by another asset. Search for the barcode of an asset before you add its value to any existing asset or create a new asset.
You can enter as much of the name as you remember in the Name field. If asset is named 'Asset', searching for 'as' shows the required asset, but if you search 'set' the result does not display the asset.
If the barcode is not found on the barcode device then you can create a new asset. Ensure that you check Create new asset on unknown barcode before you scan the barcode. Once you have created the new asset you can use the barcode device again.
