Scanning Lot Numbers Into a Manifest

Until the state of Washington's traceability migration is complete and the new Leaf Data Systems platform is up and running (scheduled for January 8, 2018), Washington retailers will be required to manually enter lot numbers into Green Bits during the inventory intake process.

The Socket Mobile barcode scanner used with the Green Bits register can also be used to scan incoming lot numbers into the Back Office, saving you time and minimizing the potential for error.

Follow the steps below to set up the scanner in HID mode and pair with a computer.

Notes: 

Lot numbers can be scanned into a manifest using any Bluetooth or USB barcode scanner as long as it's compatible with your computer. There is no specific requirement to use a Socket Mobile scanner for this process.

Socket Mobile model 7Xi shown below. The same steps apply for all Socket scanners.

1. Un-pair the scanner from your iPad

From the iPad home screen, tap the Settings icon, then tap Bluetooth.

Under My Devices, find the Socket device, then tap the “i” icon:

On the next screen, tap Forget This Device and then OK:

2. Hold down both scanner buttons simultaneously

Listen for three beeps. This deletes the scanner's paired device memory and turns the scanner off.

3. Turn the scanner back on

Hold the small button down until you hear two beeps.

4. Scan this barcode

Scan the barcode above. Listen for multiple beeps. If you don’t hear any, try scanning from different angles, and/or from 1-2 feet away. This barcode resets the device to HID mode, which is the factory default. When this barcode is scanned successfully, the device will automatically turn off.

5. Turn the scanner back on

6. Pair the scanner with your computer

Mac:

Open System Preferences and click Bluetooth.

Make sure Bluetooth is turned on. Wait for your Socket device to appear in the Devices menu (it may also appear as "Keyboard"), then click the Pair button.

Wait for your computer to confirm the connection, at which point you'll see the device as "Connected".

Windows

Open Windows Settings and click Devices.

On the left side, click Bluetooth.

Make sure Bluetooth is turned on. Wait for your Socket device to appear in the Manage Bluetooth devices menu (it may also appear as "Keyboard"), click the device name, then click the Pair button.

Wait for your computer to confirm the connection, at which point you'll see the device as "Connected".

7. Scan lot numbers into a manifest

With the scanner now paired with your computer in HID mode, you're now ready to start scanning lot numbers into a manifest. Click the Lot Number field, scan the product's barcode label, and the lot number will automatically populate.
