From http://www.stdtime.com This video answers the question of what to do with product serial numbers when barcoding in Standard Time. You have serial numbers on the products you are manufacturing. They are pre-printed, and permanently stuck onto each unit. Now what do you need to do to start barcoding them? What needs to be set up in Standard Time to use them?
The answer depends on how long you’ll need the barcode labels for time tracking. If you’ll use them for a long time, you should create a project in ST. But if you’ll only use them for hours or days, then consider creating tasks instead.
After you have created projects and tasks to represent the serial numbers, you can begin scanning in ST. Just press the F4 key to open the barcode scanning window. Scan your label and ST will recognize it.
