Barcode pool management is a powerful tool for advanced users to retain full control over how barcode numbers are issued to tickets within the system.
With barcode pools, you upload a list of valid numbers to a ticket type, and whenever a ticket is created within the system (whether it be an import, API call, added via the UI, or onsite with our check in app) a number is removed from the pool and assigned to the ticket, making that barcode number a valid scannable ticket.
Barcode numbers in the pool are not valid, scannable tickets, until they are assigned to a ticket.
Example use cases
- You have an external scanning system such as a turnstile that requires valid numbers be uploaded to it in advance
- To reduce API integration complexity if you require certain barcode numbers to be used for your tickets
- You are allocated specific ticket numbers to use for your tickets, and want to make assigning those numbers to tickets done automatically
Alternatively, you can always import tickets with specific barcode numbers pre-assigned by using the “Barcode” column in your ticket import.
