    Hi Rag,

    first of all. Which versions (client, server, standalone/smp, etc...) are you running?

    E.g. if you refer to the latest ones, please refer to this scn post regarding scanning:

    Comments to your points:

    1. Well in former versions it is possible to enable the EQ number barcode "scan-able" with the win32 client on specific devices.

    If the EQ number is used as barcode label as well. If you have e.g. a different format like an EAN code and a EQ number. You have to provide a mapping. I did that in CT and partly in the objects itself to determine the EQ if the EQ number were not on the label. In fact the information has to be present somewhere.

    2. The question is where should it be recorded? In which standard object? Notification or Workorder? Is there a self implmented Object in the BE? Some more info could helpful. Creating a timestamp is not the problem. The real question is where this information is stored....

    3. This is possible, but you have to provide somewhere/somehow a mapping of this. In the global Application settings there is a switch tio achieve that. Please refer to Screenshot:

    To achieve your questions a prerequisite is that the scanning is supported and the mentioned capabilities mentioned above are supported as well in your specific version, but as I said please refer to this post

    Kind regards,

      Hi Rag,

      therefore you could extend the Notification Object in Java, Agentry and ABAP (therefore you will have some effort in the configpanel as well). As far as I remember the Notification Object do not have a timestamp information. As I understood you would like to have the information date and time when the EQ is scanned and keep this information somewhere (which means EQ + timestamp together). Well there are no standard fields for the date and time info for a particualar EQ.

      On the other hand you could achieve that by using workorders as well.....with the time confirmation you could have a timestamp in standard. But finally it depends on the process you would like to map.

      One thing in addition. You could put the timestamp into the longtext (by string concationation). But then you will have the problem that there is no reporting regarding the longtext. But that could be the quick and dirty way. As I said it always depends on what you would like to achieve....

      Kind regards,
