QR code generation

I use this platform to send out emails for letting people know about a small networking event and ask them to register. The registration process works just fine.

I am wondering, if there is a way to add a QR code to the name at the registration, which could be used later during the check in process.

Hi @iwc , thanks for posting on this community!

Could you give more details about how you would use the QR code: would it be a link to the registration form?

Hi!

Yes. I set up the registration form with a link in my campaign. When they fill out the registration form, they get a confirmation letter. (so far this is what I was able to set up). The extra that I would like to have is that the QR code would be linked/included/attached to this confirmation page. Then, when the event is, I could just scan their QR code which would immediately let me know who showed up at the meeting.

Ok I see, thanks. What about this:

  • once form is filled in
  • you send a confirmation email
  • and in this email, you include your QR code
    Could that fit your need?

Yes. This is exactly what I would like to have. Of course a further improvement would be if I could scan the list back directly into Brevo.

Thank you for considering my concern!

Ok perfect. Then I think you can do it, even though it is not natively supported by Brevo:

  • you create your link
  • you convert it to a QR code generator (you’ll easily find one on the web)
  • and you include this QR code image in your confirmation email

=> could that work for you?

Yes, I could. However, I have 90+ names, and in this case, I have to create a code to each name and then copy it to the confirmation mail. This is a ton of work. How can I automate this process?

Hmmm ok I see. Indeed, you can’t do this manually!

Unfortunately, I’m not aware of a feature like this in Brevo :confused:

I have exactly the same wish. :wink:
Interesting to know: there is a solution in MS Word that could solve the problem. You could use the serial letter / serial e-mail function and generate directly in the word document a qr-code that contains the e.g. the name and the e-mail of the recipient. The source would be an ordinary excel-file.
It would be absolutely great, if Brevo could give us a similar solution.
:wink:

Update:
Unfortunately, the creation of the qr-codes works really well, even the printing. But as soon as the data is processed as an email, the qr-codes are gone/invisible. :frowning:
