Configure Scanner for Business Central SaaS

You are here:

A handheld scanner needs to be provisioned before it can use Warehouse Insight.


The Warehouse Insight desktop client should already be configured and functional before configuring scanners:

Connect Warehouse Insight Desktop Client to Business Central Cloud

Part A – Download CAB files

  1. Make sure the scanner is charged up and connected to Wifi. You should be able to at least navigate to or any other internet websites. If that needs to be setup, see:

DataLogic Falcon WiFi Configuration

  1. In Business Central, search for the “Device Configurations” report or browse to Warehouse Insight Report >> Device Reports >> Device Configurations.
Device Configurations

If the links in this report are not working try the barcodes listed at the bottom of this document.

  1. Open Internet Explorer (or any browser you have) on the scanner, clear the address barand scan the WMDM barcodeinto the URL Bar.
  2. With each scan, accept the download and install to the default directory.
  3. Repeat for the other two barcodes only for Falcon (Windows Embedded) scanners. Other scanners (Windows CE) only require the WMDM CAB.

You can use the MyMobiler to connect the scanner with your desktop/share the screen of the scanner. (Only for Windows Embedded)

(If you are able to connect the scanners to the desktop through USB, then you just drag and drop the files.)

Part B – Set Decoding Format

1. Set decoding format on the scanner.

Set prefix to <

Set suffix to >

Leave data separator blank

Steps for Falcon Scanners

Go to Start > Settings > Systems > Decoding > Configure > General > Formatting

Steps for Skorpio Scanners

Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Decoding > Configure > General > Formatting

*Depending on the scanner you have, the path of the setting will be different.

Configure > 1D/2D Bar Codes > [barcode type]

Part C – Configure Scanner

Print out barcodes for scanner configuration. Or manually type it in one the WMDM Configuration screen.
