Links for multiple types

    Hi. Our warehouse has multiple types of bar codes. How do we get the links to search the proper code. I have tried q={GTIN-13}{UPC-A} but can't get it to work. Thoughts?

    Just to be clear, there is a difference between search based on barcode symbology (type) and data format.
    Barcode symbologies (ie: UPC-A, QR, Code-128, etc) encode or carrier data.
    Data format (ie: URL, GTIN, etc.) is the type for information encoded in the barcode.
    So a GTIN product code can be encoded into different barcode symbologies.

    If you want to search based on GTIN, then only specify the GTIN placeholder when creating a link.
    Specify the UPC-A if you want to search on that barcode symbology.
    If you need to search for multiple things, ie UPC-A or Code-128, or GTIN or ISBN, you'll need to create separate search links.
