Why are Operator Prompts not covered in the manual? Follow
I need to generate a GS1 Data Matrix barcode, with a lot number. The operator enters the lot number in the Print form, and the GTIN is already on a field in the label so the operator doesn't need to enter it.
The Getting Started Manual did not even cover this basic scenario. I was just shocked when I didn't even see a screen shot showing how to take a field form an input form and put it into a GS1 barcode. There's really no help for the labeling I need to do.
I'm so glad that this is not our main labeling software, we have a vendor who is trying to figure out how to make a barcode too, and he is completely mystified.
Even using the GS1 AI wizard, it won't let me refer to the named data variable for the input prompt that I JUST SET UP, it only allows Database fields or embedded data. No, I need an input prompt or named variable or something. Can this even be done in Bartender? The Wizard will not produce a usable barcode from a field already on the label!
If this is hard to follow, that is exactly my point that there's nothing usable on the "Getting Started" page in regards to this.
Not eve a list of usable graphic formats in the manual. Really?
The manual also needs:
- -- lists of supported barcode symbologies
- -- how to use the barcode wizard
- -- how to set up user prompts for Lot number etc.
I'm not using Bartender for our regular labeling software, but I still have to figure it out so our vendors can produce the labeling we need for our products.
