Of course, you need to add your RFID tag IDs to the system. You can either do this through an Excel import, or by going to any item, clicking Edit, and filling in the Identification Number field:

3) Now, simply scan your labels! The TSL 1128 RFID Reader is a dual reader, meaning it scans both RFID tags and Barcodes. You can long-click the trigger to scan RFID tags, and double-click to scan Barcodes. All the scanned items will show up on the screen instantly.
