In the recent releases (197 and 198) of the Tulip platform, we have fixed several issues that have been found in the platform. In addition to fixes, production release 198 of Tulip brings a new feature: generating barcodes in Tulip apps.

New Feature: Render Barcodes

You now have the ability to generate Barcodes in the app builder under the embedded menu. This replaces the need to use an external tool. Once you select a barcode, you can drag and drop to resize it, and adjust the positioning in your app. The data source for the barcode can be pulled from a Variable, Static Value, Table Record.

Check out the video below to see this feature in action:

In this video, we used prebuilt modules from a Job Module app and added a barcode for the selected table record. Adding a barcode to the app can enable an end-user to scan a terminal to select a job and pull up information about that job on their own mobile device. An end-user could pull up work instructions for a complex assembly, or locate parts for picking.
