    This is a great feature for onsite sales at an event. However, I wish there was a way to create QR codes for pre-event sales that would link to their submission. That way, the event host can scan the attendee's code and it shows us their submission on the spot without having to search for it or having tons of spreadsheets. Just a suggestion that I would love to see regarding QR codes. The QR widgets that are currently available do not have that capability. #eventbritealternative

    There's a workaround to achieve that. Simply embed the code in your thank you page. This would generate a QR code that links to the user's submission 

    <img src="https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?chs=150x150&cht=qr&chl=https://www.jotform.com/submission/{id}&choe=UTF-8" alt="Your unique QR code" width="150" height="150" />


    Here's how:

    1. Go to Settings > Thank You Page

    2. Paste the code

    As a result:

    So when you scan the QR code, it would link to the user's submission data.

    Example: https://www.jotform.com/submission/3969747947677164312

    Hey EltonCris,

    I'm excited to see how I can achieve this workaround. However, how would I ever see the thank you page of the person submitting the form in order to scan their QR code? In other words, why not copy and paste this same code onto the autoresponder instead? Could that possibly work? This way, they can print the copy of the autoresponder in the form of a ticket, bring it to the event and we could scan the QR code then, onsite.


    Waiting to hear your thoughts.

    Your users can actually print the thank you page within their browser by simply pressing Ctrl+P or Command+P for Mac users on their keyboard.

    Anyway, it is also possible to put the code in the autoresponder too. You must paste the code into the source code editor in the autoresponder.

    Here's how:

    So as a result:

    Hey EltonCris,

    DROP THE MIC. IT WORKED.

    YOU NEED A RAISE.

    THIS IS A GAME CHANGER.

    I have been requesting this solution for a loooooooong time. Everyone at Jotform kept telling me this couldn't be done. You have made them all out to be a liar. You need to teach a session on this. If not a session, this needs to be discussed in tomorrow morning's meeting. This needs to be a blog post. You have just changed my business in a HUGE WAY. OMG. 

    Thank you, thank you, thank you.
