How to search for an item by barcode

Rather than scrolling through a large inventory to access and update an item’s information, you can fire up your tool’s details’ page by simply scanning its barcode or Asset ID tag.

To search for a barcoded item in your One-Key inventory:

1. From your inventory screen, tap the “Barcode” icon, located next to the search bar on the right-hand corner of your screen. This will open your phone’s camera.
