Some users have asked us if it is possible to add a bar code scanning feature to the Limesurvey Android app OfflineSurveys . We did a little research and found the ZXing ("zebra crossing") library which support various bar code formats (see documentation at their Github page).

Bar code scanning is available for our OfflineSurveys app since version 1.15 (release date 2016-05-07) and uses the device's camera to scan any bar code/QR code and converts it into text which is then stored in a Limesurvey "short text" question.
It is another of the additional Android multimedia questions the app offers. For all of these special question types we have created sample questions which you can directly import at your Limesurvey surveys, see www.offlinesurveys.com/add-android-multimedia-question .

We are happy about any feedback and background information about how you may be using this feature.

Please make sure that your survey matches the requirements mentioned at www.offlinesurveys.com/required-limesurvey-settings . Usually caching a survey fails because the survey isn't set to use all in one mode or it uses tokens or the welcome screen is shown.

Feel free to post a link to an activated test survey that matches the requirements so we can try to cache your survey (see www.offlinesurveys.com/add-new-survey for details about caching a survey).

Thank you for your reply.

The barcode question is working properly now in the android device.
Is it possible to prevent participant to scan/enter duplicate barcode? like an ID, once a barcode ID is save, no one will be allowed to use that ID to the whole survey?

Thank you.

Technically that isn't possible because for security reasons you can't check answers from other survey sessions at your own survey session.

None that I can think of since this is a technical limitation at Limesurvey.

The only solution would be to code such a feature for a custom PRO version of your OfflineSurveys app. If you are interested in a cost estimation please describe your requirements in details and drop us a note at Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist vor Spambots geschützt!

Hello,

I have survey with 2 groups, both groups has a barcode question and the participant must scan the same barcode ID for both question. Is there a way to stop the participant if the barcode ID are not the same?

The idea is same mention in this lnk: www.limesurvey-consulting.com/how-to-val...esses-at-limesurvey/ (Interrupt a Limesurvey survey if email addresses don’t match) but when i tried it on android device the participant can submit the data even if the ID don't match.



will scan same barcode

You can use conditions and a question of type text display with a warning which gets placed after the bar code question. Set a condition like this at the question's "relevance equation" field to show a warning if codes don't match:
bar1.NAOK!=bar2.NAOK

Hello,
I am attaching a workaround for unique barcode question...

This question will
- Query the existing LimeSurvey responses table to validate uniqueness every time you scan a new barcode (requires internet connectivity and read_response permission)
- Enforce the user to sync response before a new one (the data has to be fresh to ensure uniqueness)
- Disallow partial responses (any offline data will break the uniqueness)

Drawback: this question ensures uniqueness during the barcode scan, not during data sync (between the time a barcode was scanned until this barcode is synced with LimeSurvey, there's no way still to ensure uniqueness)

Please give it a try and let us know if you have any suggestion for improvement
