I WANT TO GENERATE BARCODE LABELS. IS THAT POSSIBLE WITH NBS?
Please note that NBS is not a barcode generator. NBS is asset management app with barcode scanning capabilities.
However, you can utilize Google Sheet’s barcode generating feature with NBS app and here’s how:
First, open the google sheet, enter barcode numbers on first column and enter formula ="*"&barcodecolumn&"*"
For example, if the value on A2 is 12345, then enter ="*"&A2&"*" on B2
Choose ‘font’ (default Arial) on horizontal navigation bar and click ‘More fonts’ under drop-down menu.
In the Fonts search pop-up, enter ‘barcode’ and you can see the types of barcode fonts offered by Google Sheets. Choose ‘Libre Barcode 39’.
Now just print this sheet, cut the labels and use the app to scan codes.
