Scanning External Bin Tickets
In this article we cover how you can scan non-Hectre bin tickets and enter them into Hectre.
This is a super helpful feature of Hectre's Harvest Management Module and useful if you work with a packhouse that provides you with their bin tickets to use on your bins. You can scan their bin ticket and attach their barcode number to the Hectre bin record on the Picking screen, enabling you to use Hectre as you normally would, while using the external barcode. With Hectre integrating in this way, it makes it easier for you to work with all of the different parties you need to work with.
Accepted barcodes can now be scanned into the Hectre Picking module for smooth record keeping with your existing bin ticketing system.
Note: If you activate this function in Hectre, you will not be able to print a new bin ticket from the app (because you've told the app you want to scan a ticket). Instead, Hectre will use the external bin ticket barcode number and will use that number to record the rest of the information such as; pickers, rates, location, QC etc.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to turn on this function for your business.
Barcode types that Hectre supports:
- Aztec Code
- Code 39
- Code 93
- Code 128
- Data Matrix
- EAN-13 // UPC-A
- QR Code

We'll be using this function in the Picking module. (Check out our article on Recording Picking Jobs)
When creating a new bin record:
- Enter bin details such as; Orchard, block, variety, piece rate etc.
- Assign pickers to the bin
- Click Scan Bin Ticket
- Scan the barcode of the bin ticket.
A green scanner line will run up and down the screen to scan the barcode on the bin ticket you hold out in front of the camera
If the barcode is damaged in some way and can't be scanned click Input bin id to manually enter the details (see Optional Step 3 below)
Optional Step 3
- Type in the bin ID as you see it on the bin ticket
- Click Save
If you have any questions about how this will work for your business, or you're keen to start using this function, please contact email@example.com.
