How can I add a QR code to my Autoresponder and ensure that the amount of QR codes generated will be the same as the amount of tickets purchased

    Hey Jotform Family,

    I just created an event form for a client. Just wondering if there was a way to add a qr code to my auto responder to use as a check-in the day of the event?

    For example, the guest will show up at the door with their ticket in hand. The staff would then scan the QR code just to keep track of the amount of people in the building? However, we would need the same amount of QR codes as the amount of tickets purchased?

    Fingers crossed.

    Hey there too @RightHandMrs - If you will use a static QR code with predefined values, then use the QR Code Widget. Otherwise, if you need it to be dynamic, or based on the answers filled out by your respondents, then use the Dynamic QR Code Widget.

    However, we would need the same amount of QR codes as the amount of tickets purchased?

    Since you will be adding the QR Code to your Autoresponder Email, there will be no chance to get a different amount of QR Codes generated VS the number of tickets purchased. No one will receive your Autoresponder Email unless they submit the form first so the amount of tickets purchased will always be equal to the amount of Autoresponders triggered (which in turn applies the same to the number of QR codes generated).

    If the sole purpose is to only show it on your Autoresponder, I recommend you hide the QR Code from your form and only add it to your Autoresponder. Any field can be hidden by right clicking on it > then select HIDE.

    Hey Jim_R,

    This was very helpful. I successfully added the Dynamic QR Code with the Full Name.

    Thanks again. I'm sad that I can't get multiple QR codes for the number of tickets purchased though. I'm really trying to create a true Eventbrite alternative.

    I'm off to brainstorm some more.

    Thanks again,

    Hi Oneka

    Were you able to come up with a solution to get multiple QR codes for the number of tickets purchased?

    I'm looking for the same solution so that each ticket has a QR code that we can scan at the entry gate>

    @MGEL, it is not possible to generate a QR code for each amount of tickets purchased.
