The Find Subject Barcodes
Applies to: All programs
Finding a subject by scanning a barcode is one of the quickest and safest ways to find a subject. The barcodes can be used in many areas of the software including:
- Details Mode
- Images Mode
- Poses Mode
- Form Packs Mode
- Match Mode
Two barcodes are available..
- The /%S barcode that finds a subject in the currently open job by their unique field
- The /%K barcode used in Version 4 that finds a subject in any job by their subject key
Either of these barcodes may be added to a template with the Add barcode object
The /%S barcode
The format for the /%S barcode is:
Let us assume you are a school photographer and the students in your job are uniquely identified by their ID number. This number is included in a field called ID.
The barcode is therefore encoded ..
The /%K barcode
The /%K barcode may only be used in Version 4. It finds subjects by their subject key which is unique across all subjects in all jobs. Therefore when using the /%K barcode it is not necessary to have the subject's job open. In fact it is not necessary to have ajob open at all.
The format for the /%K barcode is:
Since the subject key is quite long (eight characters) ensure the barcode object on the template is sufficiently wide to avoid truncating the barcode
