  5. If you have the app on a different device than the one where the dashboard is opened: click on the "Enlarge" link next to the QR code in the dashboard, then use the Keyboard Wedge app to scan the QR code.
    If you have the app on the same device than the one where the dashboard is opened: click on the "Copy" link next to the QR code in the dashboard, and then paste it in the "Enter setup code manually" field in the app.
  6. The Keyboard Wedge will then guide you to through the necessary settings changes on your phone to enable scanning into any application. . If you do not get the instructions, you can enable the Scandit Wedge Keyboard in Settings > Language and Input > On-screen keyboard > Manage Keyboards.
  7. When prompted to "Switch Inputs", select the Scandit Wedge keyboard.
  8. Once you have finished all steps, the Keyboard Wedge will now be present whenever the keyboard is open. Click on the keyboard icon of the keyboard (bottom right) to switch between keyboards.
