How to scan text with your camera to Forms, Assets, and Services

When completing Forms, creating Assets, or answering Service questions, you can speed up data entry and avoid mistakes by capturing serial numbers and other information through text recognition with the camera in your ServiceM8 App.

  • If there is a barcode, it is easiest to start by scanning it.
  • If there is not a barcode but there is a label or other identifying information, you can scan an image and ServiceM8 can extract the text.

To scan images to text:

  1. Tap Text from Camera.

  2. If the text captured is appropriate for the field, tap Insert. The information will now be captured in the field.
    • If there is too much information captured and you need to narrow it down, proceed to step 4.
