Manual StudyID Entry When QR Scanner is Down in the Field

What is the problem? Please be detailed.
Hi, I'm using ODK Collect on an Android Nexus 7 (Android version 6.0.1). In the field (Zambia), the barcode scanner occasionally will not work, so I cannot use a "yes" required function in the survey. Is there a way to use relevant/constraint so that if the barcode "type" question is skipped (when the scanner is not working) that a field for manual study ID entry comes up?
Thanks! Amy

What ODK tool and version are you using? And on what device and operating system version?

What steps can we take to reproduce the problem?

What you have you tried to fix the problem?

Anything else we should know or have? If you have a test form or screenshots or logs, attach here.

Probably you want something like attached XLS barcode.xlsx (8.6 KB)
