Leaf Barcodes - How To

 We have updated our system so the proper barcode is automatically filled in when you receive a manifest.

Any barcode changes made before February 19th at 10:30pm PST will stay the same. All barcodes moving forward will automatically fill correctly.

Any incoming inventory received before then will need to be updated per the steps below.

Before starting, we need to figure out if the physical barcodes are in the new Leaf Data Systems format or in the the legacy system format.

Leaf Data Systems Barcode

If the physical barcode is in the new format, WAJ416406.IN4ADA in the example below, follow these steps:

1. Find the product: https://secure.greenbits.com/products

2. After clicking into the product, head to Inventory > Actions > Edit

3. Edit the Barcode field to match only the characters after the period from the lot number and save the page. For the example below, the Barcode has been updated to read "IN4ADA"

4. On the iPad, exit the Register app and open it back again

5. Scan the barcode

The new barcodes are too long to be read by the scanner at this moment. Green Bits is working to take this into account and will be fixing it in future releases.

16 digit - legacy barcodes

If the physical barcode on the item has a 16 digit barcode, you'll need to update the product.

2. After clicking into the product, head to Inventory > Actions > Edit

3. Edit the Barcode field to match the physical barcode and save the page

4. On the iPad, exit the Register app and open it back again

5. Scan the barcode

More Info

There is a lot of information flying around right now related to barcodes, labeling and the new format for lot numbers in Washington. I just wanted to share a few important points so that we’re all on the same page as it relates to Green Bits software and how it works in the retail stores:

Retailers can scan any barcode they want to sell a product on the Green Bits register. It can be the FULL global ID, partial global ID or even a completely random SKU. The only requirement is that the barcode is unique across all inventory items within Green Bits.

If a retailer receives product on a manifest and the barcodes have the FULL global ID, those products will be scannable on the Green Bits register as soon as you accept the manifest. This is because Green Bits anticipates and matches the barcode to the full lot number received from Leaf Data Systems.

If a retailer receives product on a manifest and the barcodes have a partial global ID, those products WILL NOT be scannable on the Green Bits register automatically. In order to make these barcodes scannable, the retailer will need to change the barcode. They can do this easily on the manifest page, but not from the register. The retailer can do this with the help of a simple corded USB scanner, or they can just manually type in the partial global ID. Click HERE for a short video that shows what it looks like to scan a barcode into the barcode field.

If a retailer receives product on a manifest and the labels don’t have any barcodes, those products WILL NOT be scannable on the Green Bits register. However, the Green Bits system comes equipped to do print 2" x 1" barcodes. It is 100% possible to print the FULL global ID, partial global ID or even a completely random SKU using our system without any effort from a processor.
