Scan a bar code within a Rise course

Aug 27, 2021

I'm creating training for retail workers. Is there a way to insert a bar-code reader on a Rise page that links to an external database?

Ideal state would be to scan a product, and have the correct answer to a question tied to a cell in the database (e.g., What color is it? would be the question, and the correct answer would be conditional depending on the content of the cell that displays the item's color. Or even, "Is it green"? but still would be conditional on whether or not the database cell states "green.")

Another use would be to pull up a web page based on a scan of the barcode, so that our online store's page for that product would display and then the user could either continue using the online store for research or to help a customer, or close it out and return to the Rise course.
