- We suggest AGAINST using the Ticket Label for customer work, since you will need to cover up the label with a new label for every repeat job with the customer - and it will be highly confusing for tracking a job if that label is ever not up to date. Typically the labels aren't easily removable, so if a computer comes in a few times in a year - it could start to get really ugly.

The system works with any barcode scanner that sends the results as a regular text input device.
To set it up, just plug your USB scanner into your computer. A driver should be automatically installed. Scan your labels into the "Search all the Things" search box or another search field. If you have any trouble scanning, it's typically an issue with the label material. To troubleshoot:
1. Copy a label onto plain printer paper
2. Try scanning that barcode into a text editor
3. If the scanner is able to scan it, the problem was likely a matter of the reflectivity of the label material.
