What did you upload using Barcode?
I might have missed something with the new barcode solution in 7.1 but I could not find a way to get a list of the barcodes or serial numbers of the devices I just scanned and uploaded. Also, for some reason you can only scan to barcode, or scan to serial number. And, you can scan into the name field unless you change modes on the scanner. Every device gets uploaded with the same name like "new computer" what's that all about? that's three scans for one device.
Am I doing it wrong?
here is what I did, let me know what you think.
1, since most devices will use the serial number as the name until they get on the floor and an agent we have an import export job that simply looks for new assets named "new computer" and changes its name to the serial number. same with monitors.
2. As I said, I cant find a report of the barcodes, or the serial numbers on the last upload. You can get a count but you cant see the device serial numbers or barcodes. for some reason the report for last barcode scan doesn't report uploaded devices.
2.2 so I cloned the report, "barcode Uploads' stripped out the sql but left the all the report perameters. I replaced the code(which is crazy long) with the following.
select vAsset.[Serial Number], vAsset.Manufacturer,vAsset.Model, Inv_Barcode_Scanner.LoadDate from Inv_Barcode_Scanner
join vAsset on Inv_Barcode_Scanner._ResourceGuid = vAsset._ResourceGuid
datediff(%Period Type%, Inv_Barcode_Scanner.LoadDate , getdate())>=0
and datediff(%Period Type%,Inv_Barcode_Scanner.LoadDate, getdate())<=%units%
order by LoadDate
So this gives me the upload data. The question is, Does anyone have a better plan? or are we just doing it wrong? What are you doing.
