Data that is collected using your Symbol MC3090 is hot-synced directly to your TIPWeb application data. Those records, which cannot be processed or added to your data, are held for you under the Manage TIPWeb Mobile Errors icon.

Quick Data Entry allows you to use your attached/connected reader to distribute and collect textbooks directly to your TIPWeb application data through a scanning process. You can see the information you are scanning, and in the case of distributions, you can print a receipt as soon as you have distributed all of a student's or teacher's textbooks.
Print Book ISBN & Accession Bar Codes allows you to print the bar code labels which you adhere to your textbooks. In some instances the district office prints the majority of the labels for you. However, some districts allow you to print all of your own labels. Regardless of where the majority of your labels come from, you will, from time to time, need to be able to print your own labels. You may want to distribute books which your district level is not tracking, or you simply need to replace a defaced label. TIPWeb provides the ISBN and accession bar code on one label. You simply select the title for which you need labels, indicate the number of labels needed, and select to print.
