Scan barcodes with your camera while using Airtable Forms!
⚠️ Update

We have a new barcode scanner extension that is more capable. We highly recommend that you check it out.

With this extension, you can scan barcodes using your phone (or desktop browser) and then pass the scanned barcode to an Airtable form. This extension also supports an unlimited number of forms.

This tool is particularly useful if you’d like your employees to scan inventory and add it to your Airtable base without giving them access to the base.

Features

  • Supports scanning and pre-filling multiple fields.
  • Supports +10 different types of barcodes.
  • Supports having multiple scanner pages (up to 10 different bases/tables).
  • Now you can integrate this with our Client Portal extension 🆕
    (so you can scan a barcode and see an Airtable record as a result instead of filling a form)

Demo

The live demo uses this Airtable View. Note that the demo only supports UPC barcodes because a barcode type has to be selected for the demo, but the extension can be configured to scan any one of the supported barcode types.

Supported Barcode Types

• Code 128
• EAN, EAN 8
• Code 39, Code 39 VIN
• Codebar
• UPC, UPC-E
• i2of5, 2of5
• Code 93

Troubleshooting

Chrome on iOS isn’t scanning barcode, why?

Safari is the only browser that can have access to the camera on iOS devices. Apple doesn’t allow live scanning with third party browsers. Live scanning will only work in Safari. Unfortunately, it’s not possible to get around that limitation. Apple does not allow Chrome (or any other browser) to have that feature. So we recommend that you switch browsers. you can find full list of supported mobile browsers here.

The browser is asking for my permission to access my camera, should I allow it?

Yes, in order for the barcode scanner to work, you have to click ‘Allow’.

Do I have to click “Allow” every time? Is there a way save my answer?

Yes, in iOS Safari app click on the website settings icon at the upper left corner. Then click ‘Camera’ > ‘Allow’.
