How does ScanAnything work?

ScanAnything is a mobile app that runs on your iOS or Android phone or tablet.  When you start ScanAnything you login into the same Salesforce org as your Salesforce app.  After that if you scan a barcode or QR code ScanAnything looks up records in your Salesforce org that have the scanned value setup in a special field used by ScanAnything.  If ScanAnything finds a match it will open the Salesforce app with the matching record open.  ScanAnything stays running in the top left corner of your phone so you can tap ScanAnything and go back to scanning mode quickly.

I added a barcode field to an object but ScanAnything does not recognize it

There are two possible reason that this might be happening;

  1. Your field might not be setup correctly
    1. The field API name must be SA_ID
    2. The field must be set as an external ID
    3. The field must be set as unique
  2. You might need to clear cache on the ScanAnything app.  If you just added the field you will need to go into the ScanAnything app, tap the gear icon and select Clear Cache.  This will tell ScanAnything to re-read all the objects and look for new SA_ID fields.  You can also logout and login again.
ScanAnything Setup Guide

ScanAnything does require that your System Administrator setup fields that are used by ScanAnything.  It only takes a few minutes but it need to be done before you can use ScanAnything.  Use the System Administrators guide to learn how to setup the required fields and other configuration options.
