Application Description of Barcode Generator

You are here:

Though Barcode Generator provides sample reports that can be used as-is, it is primarily a developer tool that requires the prerequisite ability to develop and deploy reports or report extensions in Business Central. It is not intended as a beginner or end-user tool. To use the built-in reports as an end user versus developing new reports, switch to the Business Manager role center to see the Barcode Generator menu, or use the search function and type “barcode” to view all the barcoded reports and tools. For development, the KB includes documentation on how to add the appropriate code/logic to reports to add barcodes, as well as the code for sample reports.

Barcode Generator makes it possible to add linear (Code39 and Code128) or 2D (Data Matrix and QR Code) barcodes to reports in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, seamlessly integrating with existing hardware and third-party applications. You can also modify existing reports such as invoices, order confirmations, and production orders to include barcodes, or you can create new reports with barcodes.

There are numerous sample reports are included that you can use as-is or create modified layouts. To add barcodes to your reports, you will need to use the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central development tools to create a Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central extension.

Another addition is the ability to create a predefined list of barcodes, categorize them for bulk barcode print jobs that are done often, and scan these barcodes in Tile View.
