There is an open issue with the current Android version of the 5-Star Students Manager app (19.0.2).
Camera scanning may not work correctly if a barcode contains 3 or less characters. Barcodes generated for students, staff, or community members may be affected by this restriction if their ID numbers are 3 or less digits in length.
We have been working with the software provider that provides our camera scanning capability to resolve this issue, which will be fixed in a future version to be released during September 2019.
If you are currently impacted by this camera scanning issue, please download the previous version of our Manager app from https://5starstudents.com/androidfix.
It's easiest if you access the location above directly from your Android device. Additional instructions for "sideloading" an app on your Android device are available here
