QR-Code or Barcode filter doesn't work

I am presenting a report this morning using the barcode scanning function. I tested everything on Monday to make sure it was good to go, and as of yesterday, the scanner brings up a report but won't filter the report. I've tried it on multiple different items, all in the report. I only have one column with barcode data. I didn't even touch this report after testing it on Monday, but the function no longer works. Anyone else having this problem today? Very disappointing.

Hi all,

I just have a quick question: Is the same barcode functionality available/will be available for QR Codes? I'd like a user to scan a QR code and get the report filtered according to the product they scanned.

Thanks in advance,

@v-shex-msft it looks like it may be. The report does recognize as a barcode and pulls up the report, but there is no filtering. Thank you!
