I'm new at this, but for now it seems that in my Survey123, the barcode scan function , is very slow, the image is wobbly ... Te tablet is brand new (Panasonic FZ-B2) android 6.0.1 on kernel : 3.14.55.
What could be the reason, or how can I solve this ?
What type of barcode format are you attempting to scan?
One option might be for you to uncheck the formats that the field app is enabled to look for. You can do this after opening up your barcode question, and then selecting the hamburger menu on the top right. You will see 'Barcode Types', followed by a list of the barcode formats. Uncheck those barcodes types that you do not need and see if that leads to any results.
I have to scan (in 1 survey):
- normal 2d standard barcode
I have unchecked "all barcodes" and the image is less unstable and the good news is I have now a result when scanning a test code (at home) ... I'll keep you posted when testing outdoors .... hope this works .
Thanks for the support
now that I have your attention; would it be possible to use a external barcode reader on usb cable and/or on bluetooth
Great to hear that there were some performance improvements after unchecking the irrelevant barcode types. As for the use of bluetooth scanners, they should be able to fill in barcode fields. However, they also take over the keyboard of the device; currently the on-screen keyboard does not display when the scanner is connected.
