Queue Mode

Queue mode allows you to add books in batches. You can add multiple titles and/or ISBNs to the search queue then search for them. Queue mode is the most efficient way to add books to your database. Combined with a barcode scanner app, it makes light work of even the largest collections.

  1. Open the Add Books Automatically screen by clicking top left blue “plus” button in your program.
  2. To enable queue mode, click the ‘Show Queue’ button.

With the Search Queue visible you can start queueing books.

  • Type the author/title or ISBN into the appropriate search field then click Add to Queue.
  • Once you’ve queued up your books, click Search All.
  • Once the search is complete, click on an entry in the queue (top panel) to view the results (bottom 2 panels)

You now have three options for adding your books:

Add Anyway: This will add the selected book to your database without any additional information, using only your author/title/ISBN information. This is useful if no results are found in our database. You can add the book title to your database then add more information manually.

Add Selected: This will add the book you’ve selected to your database. First, click the book in the Search Queue, select a result by clicking on it or checking the box next to it then click ‘Add Selected’.

Add All: This option will remain gray until you click a result from the Search Queue, then select a book from the Search Results. You can use the check box next to the book then move to the next book in the queue. Once you’ve selected a result for each book you can click Add All to add the books to your collection.
