Print Barcode Labels From MS Word

It is possible to print barcode labels from MS Word. Watch the tutorial below to learn how.

Those labels can then be used to track time in ST. Just scan an employee name, a project name, and a task. The timer will start. Now go perform your task. When finished scan *STOP* to stop the timer.

All these barcode labels can be printed with MS Word. You can lay out a work order with the labels in the corner or bottom. Hand the work order to operators, and they can easily track hours for the job.
