About the Quick Scan template

Barcode Solution

The Quick Scan template lets you update assets quickly by assigning new values to selected fields whenever the assets' barcodes are scanned.

See Performing asset management tasks using Barcode Solution

You can edit the following fields:

  • Name

  • Barcode

  • Location

  • Status

  • Cost Center

  • Owners

  • Manufacturer

  • Model

  • Comment

You can use this template when your assets have changed location. After the assets have been physically moved, you can use Quick Scan to scan the new location and all assets at that location. You can do this procedure by scanning Location barcode and then scanning all of the assets at that Location.

For example, if each office on a floor has both a location barcode and an owner barcode then you know the following information about an asset:

  • The location barcode tells you which floor the asset is located on.

  • The owner barcode tells you the owner of the office.

To scan all assets on the floor, you can begin at an office and scan the location barcode. The Location field autopopulates. Then select the correct status from the status list. Scan the owner barcode. The owner field auto-populates. Select Create new asset on unknown barcode. Then scan all assets that are in the office. All of the assets are automatically assigned to the owner and location that you scanned. You can then go to the next office and repeat this procedure.
