Can anyone explain how to use the Bar code scanner feature with Yulelog for Hallmark and if there are any other scanners that work other than an Ipad or Iphone?

Thank You in advance.

My friend used the barcode scanner option with her iPad a couple of years ago. I don't have an iPad to use, but I would imagine you would use the same functionality you use for scanning a QR code. Is that enough information to help you?

As far as I know Sean only offers the feature for iPads and iPhones. He hasn't done anything for Android devices.

New member here. I have both an iPhone and a newly-purchased bar code scanner. I haven't tried the scanner yet because I'm still trying to figure it out. I actually purchased it to help me inventory my books and CDs.

Following the instructions in the Help Manual, I was able to scan ornaments into the Filemaker software on the iPhone. However, I was never able to figure out how to upload the database from the iphone to the computer.

You have to use the iTunes program on the computer to do the transfer. The items don't sync authomatically. I think iTunes has been updated several times since the instructions were written and the old directions are inconsistent with the new iTunes program. I gave up and just entered the items manually into Yulelog. Fortunately, I had only done a few.

Also, the database only works with ornaments beginning with Year 2014. Since a large part of my collection is before that date, I think it's going to be easier for me to just enter all of them manually.

Yes, the bar code option has only been added to Yulelog in the last couple of years.

I don't know that all of the years since 2014 have had the barcodes added. I believe there was a year or two when none of them got added.

If you want to use the form found in the Contact section of this board (from Yulelog.com choose Contact) and you can enter the information for the ornament and provide Sean with the barcode. It won't help you unless you want to wait until the next update is available but it will help others. I've been trying to give Sean the barcodes as I send him information on missing items.
