Generating barcode can be used to scan the generated barcode from the printed Purchase Orders or Orders and it would deliver the Purchase Order or Order number to the device that it is connected to.

Note: The scanner and all the back end works related to converting the barcode into a readable form will be done from the customer end, our work is only to generate a barcode that represents a Purchase Order and Order number.

For Instance: Let us consider the Orders App. We will learn to generate the Order number as a barcode.

Steps to generate a Barcode

  • Log in to the Apptivo and access the Orders App from the universal navigation bar.
  • Navigate to Settings in the app header bar of the Orders App.


  • Choose the “Print/Web Layout” from the “Customize App” dropdown.
