  Tips and Tricks  


Adding Client Barcodes to Diary forms

Barcodes are a great way to quickly access your client records. By adding these to your diary forms you can increase the speed and accuracy of your client care. For example after a client has filled in a new client or address confirmation form you may need to update the client details in HAIRLINKSQL. If the form has a barcode just scan and the client record will open straight away. No need to search or get confused where clients have similar names.

  1. At the top of HAIRLINKSQL, click 'Options' > 'Setup (Username)'.
  2. Log in on this page by clicking on the padlock button or clicking 'Log In/Out' in the top menu.
  3. Click on 'Diary' > '3 : Diary Forms' and click the form you want to add a barcode to for example New Client Form.
  4. Move the cursor to where you want to insert the barcode and click 'Insert Merge Field' in the top left of the edit window. This will open the Mail Merge variables window.
  5. Double click on the field you want to insert, in this case 'ClientBarcode'.
  6. Highlight the text that was inserted. It should look something like this '<< ClientBarcode >>' and change the font to Code39-Demo. This will change the text to blocks, however when it is printed it will display as a barcode.
  7. When you print the form from the diary it will display the barcode, ready for you to scan.
