Passport scanning is available on the AgriWebb Web App through the use of a connected USB or Bluetooth bar code scanner.
What do I need to scan?
Passports contain one or more barcodes. In the case of the sample BCMS passport shown below, there are two bar codes.
The bar code in the top right corner contains just the tag number and the bar code. Whilst the one in the bottom left provides both the tag number and some additional information such as date of birth, sex, breed and optionally a version number.
In this example the bar code in the bottom left should be scanned.
Navigate to the Livestock tab on the Web App. Select Individuals from the top navigational bar.
Click Add Animal and then select the Scan passport.
A Scan Passport dialog will open as shown here:
Before initiating a scan, make sure your scanner is correctly configured to work with your computer. Scan the bar code on the passport you wish to import.
Note: It is important that the passport scanner is in HID mode, and the browser window remains in focus during scanning.
Once scanned successfully you should see the applicable animals appear in a list like below.
Note: For passports with multiple bar codes that split the tag number and data, for example in Irish passports, you will need to scan the codes sequentially before that animal will appear in the list. They will only display as partial scans until then.
Once all the animals have been scanned click on Add animals. You will then be returned to your Individual animals list - which will now show those newly scanned animals. See Individual Animal List for further information.
