How Do I Login With a Barcode?

What is barcode scanning?

Barcode scanning systems help businesses track an amazing amount of information which, in turn, increases productivity and efficiency. You can improve your business’ process (saving time and money) by quickly scanning a barcode to login.  

vWorkApp v4.12 (and later) includes a button on the login screen that says "Scan barcode to login".

Why use barcode scanning to login?

Most of our customers assign jobs to people, but some of them need to assign work to a specific vehicle and it doesn't matter who is driving.  In this case, you can either mount a phone permanently in each vehicle or force the driver to re-login with their vehicle details whenever they start driving.

This is intended to allow workers who drive multiple vehicles to quickly login and see all the jobs assigned to the vehicle they are currently driving.  

How do I set it up?

1.  Ensure that each one of your vehicles has an email and password set up in the vWorkApp User Admin page. You need to insert this information when creating the barcode.

2.  You can create a QR code online for free here: http://www.barcodesinc.com/generator/qr/

3.  In the box labeled "Text to embed in QR Code:" insert the following: {"email":"insert your email address here","password":"insert your password here"}

4. Click "Create QR Code", you should see an image that looks like this:

5. If you are logged out, you can scan this image from the login screen on your phone to automatically login to vWorkApp as this user.

6.  Save the image to your computer for later use or print it out, laminate it and stick it to the dashboard of the vehicle.

That's all there is to it, please let us know if you have any problems.
