Set up a QR code poster

Learn how to set up a QR code poster. Employees, service providers, and visitors can all sign in by scanning the QR code with their smartphone. You must have the Administrator user role to access these settings.

Add a QR code poster

The setup process for a QR code poster is largely the same as a sign in/out kiosk. You can choose who can use the kiosk, configure arrival notifications, set up badge pass printing, set up any custom questions, and more. The only major difference is the poster layout and mobile sign in settings.

If you need to print badges and you’re going to display the poster at an entry point away from a printer, you may like to set up a welcome greeting directing guests to the reception to collect their badge.

Once set up, you can download the full formatted poster using WhosOnLocation's template, or if you'd like to use your own custom design, just download the QR code.
