WHAT IS THE BARCODES MODULE


You can now create barcodes in Delogue PLM based on the style number, colors, and sizes of your products. With this feature, you are able to import and export your own barcodes and overview the ones in use.


NOTE: Users need to have the special role "SKU - Barcodes" in order to have access to the barcodes feature.



HOW TO USE IT


In the Admin section, choose ‘General Settings’ from the left menu and select the ‘Barcodes’ subtab. Here you will be able to choose the format of the SKU and import barcodes. 

We will walk you through how to use it:


CHOOSE SKU FORMAT


There are 4 different parameters you can choose to be part of the SKU: 

  • Style number
  • Size
  • Size ID
  • Colors 

Simply click the checkboxes to select the options you want to use in the SKU. 



You can drag and drop the rows to set the order to use in the format of SKU. 


Additionally, you can use the option to set a delimiter to your SKU (max. 5 characters). 

Click ‘Set format’ to save delimiter. Here, two things will happen:


1) A warning message is displayed: "You are about to change the format of your SKUs this will make all old SKUs inactive and generate new barcodes next time you generate SKUs & barcodes on a Style - are you absolutely sure you want to do this?"


2) By clicking ‘OK’, a second message is shown: "You are changing the SKUs format are you sure you want to do this?"


3) Click ‘OK’ and the format will be saved.


NOTE: SKU format and delimiter can be edited later under the ‘Barcodes’ subtab in the Styles section.


IMPORT BARCODES


You can choose to import new barcodes and already used SKU and barcodes to Delogue PLM. To do so, simply click ‘Choose file’ and upload a CSV file with the first row named "Barcode".



The system will always show a counter of how many "free" barcodes you have left. This means the number will automatically be decremented by one - every time a barcode gets assigned to an SKU.


If you import barcodes that are already in use, the following message will appear: "Only [#] barcodes imported of the [#of total] in the file."


LOG OF BARCODE IMPORT


Just below the Import section, you will see a table named "Log of Import" this logs every time a CSV file is imported. 

This will help you keep track of the files imported, as well as when and who did it. The comments column will provide info about the file status and warning messages.
