Happy scanning πŸ‘‹

Import and export Triggers





Triggers are a great way to add custom functionality to your sheet, from showing and hiding fields to breaking apart barcodes and sending notification as data changes.

To make them even easier to work with, we've added the ability to import/export to Excel.

Here's the triggers used in the Medical Device Tracking template to extract data from GS1 barcodes into separate fields:

And the same triggers exported to Excel:

Hope this helps!

Use column values in Triggers





You can now use the value of columns in your triggers πŸŽ‰

Let's say you have a stock list with Barcode, Name, Quantity and Min Stock level (the ideal amount you would like to keep in stock):

You can use the value of the Min Stock within a trigger to say: "send me an email to reorder this item when its quantity drops below the min stock level":

With that trigger in place, if the Quantity drops below Min Stock for any of your products, an email notification will be sent asking to reorder the item:

To use a column value in a trigger, simply wrap the column name in square brackets [Min Stock].

Hasta luego πŸ‘‹

Send SMS messages using triggers





Emails notifications are great for things that need attention eventually, but what if something needs attention right-away?

You can now send an SMS message to up to 10 people per trigger (with asset information) the instant something happens:

You can also send email notifications to multiple recipients now too πŸŽ‰

Until next time πŸ––

Track your assets on a map





As requested, we've added the ability to view the location of your assets. Just click the map button at the bottom of your sheet:
