Per default, each location has its own individual scanner code in the form of a QR code, which (optionally) can be customized from the location editor if needed. The system then lets you export the codes allowing you to print and place them on your various locations.
The video below will show you where to find the scanner code in the location editor, how to customize it and how to export it.
The scanner codes can be used in three different ways:
- As a question type in checklists
- As a filtering option under ‘Assignments’ and ‘Checklists’ in the mobile app
- As a shortcut to the location in the ‘Location Overview’ in the mobile app
When adding a scanner question to a checklist, you have to select which type of validation that should be used to answer the question.
- None: The user just has to scan any scanner code, and this code will then be showcased in the report
- Location: The user has to scan the scanner code of the location he/she is currently working on
- Specific: The user has to scan a scanner code that matches the specific code created for the question
The video below will show you how to add a scanner question in a checklist and how it is answered in the app:
Note: When selecting the ‘Specific’ validation option, you have to enter the value of the code that should be scanned to answer the question.
The generated scanner code will show next to the entered value. Click on the scanner code to open it in a separate window, from where you can print it or save it as an image:
Exporting all specific scanner codes from a checklist
In case you have added multiple specific scanner code questions to a checklist, it is easier to export these in one go. Simply select the checklist and click the "Export Scanner Codes" button:
Filtering option for checklists and assignments
When using filters to get a better overview of either your list of checklists or your list of assignments, you can use the scanner option as a location filter. Simply scan the code on a location and click ‘Apply’ for the list to only show checklists or assignments connected to that location.
Shortcut to location in the Location Overview
The ‘Location Overview’ in the mobile app is a great way to get an overview of the statuses and details of the location groups and locations that the user have access to. The scanner code enables the user to quickly jump directly to a certain location. The user simply scans the code on the location to access the relevant location data.
