Barcode Scanning

Launch the mobile app and login with your Google account on your mobile device. When you open the app on your mobile device, press "Click here to scan" and start scanning barcodes.

Form Input via Mobile
To fill out the required fields, users input text in various formats. Once they have finished entering their information on the form, they click on "Submit Changes". This action records the data into the app's database, which corresponds to your GEAR Google Sheet. ​
Multiple Barcode Recognition
​ By using the secondary barcode function from the form's dropdown menu, users can locate multiple barcodes within a single row on the Google Sheet that tracks inventory.

When the creator of a form clicks on the “Complete and Save” button, the form is automatically published, generating an NBS spreadsheet in the Google Drive of the associated Gmail account ​

Locating your Spreadsheet
To properly view the spreadsheet, make sure you are accessing it on the same Gmail account that was logged in to when designing the form.

Sheet Tabs
The GEAR NBS Spreadsheet has asset tabs at the bottom.

  2. History Tab: [Your Form Name History]
    With the "FORM NAME History" tab, you can see all scans histories. This tab stores the records of scanned items. On an initial scan, input a barcode number as "Insert". If the same code is rescanned, the system detects it as an existing item and updates the corresponding row. This provides much more detailed tracking than what's provided in Barcode Scanner tabs.

The most common error in NBS is a submission error: please confirm that the form name, fields, and orders match.

Form Tab

The name of the form, the fields in the form, and the order of the fields in the Google sheet should match. If you need to add columns manually, you can do so. Additionally, you can utilize 'Version history' feature in Google Sheets to revert to a previously working version.
