Mobile app client : work as dedicated bar code scanner.
Is it posible to set the mobile app into a forced "bar code reader" state?

In this state the phone will turn into a dedicated bar code reader so anything you scan will be inmediatly sent to teamdesk database without asking for additional user input.

The application is for employee assitance records. When they arrive or leave the office they just pass the QR code to a dedicated phone that will register their ingress or egress of the building. Today they have to turn the phone on, click teamdesk app if not already open, request the action and then select the barcode input field to activate the camera.

Without changing a lot here is what we can do. If

1. it is a create mobile action and
2. if there is a sole barcode field -

then when action is selected

* we navigate directly to scanner
* on successful scan simulate send button
* and run the same action again - until you navigate back.

At some point in time we can extend create mobile action with a general purpose "save and new" flag.

Sounds great. Would love to test this. Will it be available soon?

Hi Kirill - We could really use this right now. Any idea when we could look at testing this?

Keeping it on the radar, but so far we are trying to reach zero crashes in both Android and iOS apps.
