Navigating the Scan Page:

There are four ways to scan students:  Scan and Qualify,  Scan, Manual Entry, and Offline.

‘Scan and Qualify’

  1. Barcodes will scan as soon as they are in the camera frame.
  2. The scan chime and vibration will confirm acceptance of the scan.
  3. Student data will appear on the 'Qualify Lead' screen for reference.  
  4. Ranking options are displayed for selection.
  5. ‘Rep Insights’ box is available for notes.
  6. The last scanned barcode will list at the bottom of the screen.


‘Scan’
  1. Barcodes are scanned as soon as they are in the camera frame
  2. The scan chime and vibration will confirm acceptance of the scan.
  3. Scans are saved immediately without the 'Qualify Lead' step. (Use this method when the table is busy).
  4. Qualify leads later via the 'View Leads' screen.
  5. The last scanned barcode will list at the bottom of the screen.
‘Manual Entry’
  1. Use to enter barcodes when lighting or the condition of the barcode prohibits the scan from capturing.
  2. Type in the number underneath the student’s barcode and hit ‘Accept’.
  3. The scan chime and vibration will confirm acceptance of the scan.
  4. The last scanned barcode will list at the bottom of the screen.


Offline Scanning:

Offline mode will activate if internet is spotty or unavailable for any reason. No student data will appear on the screen when scanning offline, but student data is still captured. ‘Rep Insights’ and 'Lead Rank' are still available. 


After scanning, be sure to upload the scans/leads with a Wi-Fi/Cellular Data connection. Related Article: How To Upload Leads
