The Search template lets you find and view any resource whose data classes correspond with the search fields. You can find a resource either by scanning a field or a barcode, or entering as much information as you want and selecting Find. You can do a partial search by name entering the first few characters of the name.
You can scan in a field as an efficient way of searching. Barcoder automatically triggers a search.
When a gray picker field is displayed and the device beeps when you scan a barcode, the field is automatically populated. For example if you are in the Search screen and you scan a location tag, the Location field gets populated with that location. Then, every tag that you scan until you scan another location tag gets its filter value set, but the asset is not updated.
When you select a resource on the Results screen, the View screen appears in the Associations category, showing associations information about that asset. To view other information about that asset, scroll to the category (tab) you want and select it. These categories (tabs) are found on the bottom of the View and Edit screens.
If you have a computer and you know what its barcode is, you can scan it from this screen and its asset information displays.
Suppose you have a computer that has a damaged barcode and you need to find its information another way. You can enable direct scan for a field (make sure that the cursor is on the field), such as serial number. You can then scan the computer's serial number and the information displays.
