Creating a new asset in Barcoder

Barcode Solution

Normally, asset data is added through the Symantec Management Console and is downloaded to the barcode device. As you perform barcoding functions, the asset data is available for adding a barcode value or inventorying. If an asset has an unknown barcode or if it does not have a barcode, you can add it with Barcoder.

To increase productivity, use Barcoder only to add enough information to uniquely identify an asset. You can then use the Symantec Management Console to add the remaining data.

When you add new assets to the asset database, you can save time by preparing barcodes ahead of time. For example you can create barcodes for the name of the company and for common assets. You can then select the appropriate field and scan the value into the field rather than keying it in to save time and errors. If you regularly add certain computer models, you can create barcodes for your company, the computer company, and the models you buy. You can then scan the values into the appropriate fields.

This task is a step in the process for performing asset management tasks using Barcode Solution.
