There are two options for assigning barcodes to families:
Under Maintenance, select the Families tab. At the top of the screen (next to 'Families') you will see an option titles 'Edit List', select this option. This will take you to the 'Edit Families' screen, locate the bar code column and click in the field so a flashing cursor is displayed. Once the cursor is in the correct field, scan the barcode you wish to assign to the family. The information will automatically be saved when you select the next field, or by pressing the tab button on your keyboard.
The second option will allow you to add a barcode only for one family. You can locate the family again using the Families tab, under Maintenance. However, this time, locate the specific family you wish to edit (for example Smith). Once they have been located, under the 'Actions' column, select the 'Edit Smith' button. This will bring you to the 'Smith Family' screen, at the top select the 'Options' tab, then select the 'Bar Code ID' field so the flashing cursor is in this field. Next, scan the barcode you wish to assign to this family (it should automatically appear in the field once scanned), then select the 'Save Family' button at the bottom of the screen.
