To use a bar code scanner effectively in ConnectNow, please access the attached document. The documents has the manufacturer, Zbaus Inc (aka ZBA) contact information and the bar codes for one, two, and three carriage returns (aka “enters” on the keyboard).
Zbaus Inc (aka ZBA) is the company probably more than half of our parishes using bar codes have gotten their bar code scanners from. They are responsible for setting up the bar codes, even though these bar codes should work with any brand of scanner as the font the codes are made from is a standard font & doesn’t have anything to do with the brand of scanner.
In the Posting screen, one “enter” is needed to go from the envelope number field into the amount field. After the amount is put in (either by manually typing it on the keyboard or by scanning a bar code of that amount which our desktop user guide for bar code scanning had), have them scan the three carriage return bar code in the attached file which will take them to the check number, memo, & Save fields so they are back in the envelope number field.
Here is how the process should work to enter contributions using the barcode:
- Scan the barcode.
- Enter the amount.
- Scan the triple carriage return.
- Repeat steps 1-3
Here’s the visual for what is going on:
