Hello @BIRD_PLACE 

While there is no dedicated spot to record barcodes for my clients who want a record of it I use one of the Custom Fields that are available.  This is the type of info they are meant for. See this MYOB help article.

Hi,

 

I am sure it would be very beneficial to many users if you were able to have a second lookup field for items.

 

This could be used for the products barcode so you could either scan a barcode or type a description to enter the same item into a sales window.

 

@Haydes did mention this in March 2019 but his brilliant suggestion seems to have been overlooked and forgotten about.

 

I know Retail Manager had it and so does Advanced and EXO along with a competitor Jim2 and several others.

 

The fields are called "Barcodes or Alternate Codes" in the other packages.

This is an absolute no brainer.  I am looking around at other packages. Does anyone have suggestions?

cheers

Hi everyone, 

 

Having barcodes in the app is a pretty nifty idea! We'll toss it into the suggestion hat for potential future updates.

 

Feel free to create a new thread if you require any other assistance.

 

Thanks,
