Can I use app sheet with an external BarCodeScanner?


I created an Inventory, but instead of scanning the Bar Code with the phone camera I want to scan it with a scanning machine I have, how can I scan using the machine and not the camera?

Here is an image of what I mean by scanning machine.

Thank you

A barcode is just a string of numbers. These scanners typically just input that string of number like a keyboard. You don’t have to use the “scanning” functionality in Appsheet, just have a text field, click into it, then use the scanner.


Hello Marc,

Thank you for your answer. So I can use the scanning machine that I have? And I would have to connect the scanner to the Phone or iPad right?

I’d think it easy enough to just try.
