    Hi there,

    we are running property management service for residential. We would like to stick a QR code on the wall that consist some of the basic information for tenant to scan on once they open the JotForm.

    I have setup the tenant self-serve form, with the QR code reader as the first question.


    my question will be:

    1) how should we setup the QR code so that it populate some information that Jotform can read and pre fill the form? e.g. QR code with address and property ID. And each resident can scan it to get these data pre-fill when they fill in the form.

    You can find my form "Tenant Self-Service Form" at: https://form.jotform.com/210391339479058


    2) after they scan it, the property ID and address can display on the second page and let tenant to select their requested service.

    3) the address will display at the notification form and relevant enquiry will be answered by different department.


    I was using some QR generator website to create the text, but wasn’t able to make it talk to the QR code reader and pre-fill the relevant data.

    Thank you for the help


    Kind Regards,

    Alan Ha

    Greetings,

    Kindly share the QR codes that you've generated so we can check them here. I've tried the following website to generate the QR code and it worked instantly.

    2) after they scan it, the property ID and address can display on the second page and let a tenant select their requested service.

    The QR data can not be populated in the address field however, you can use the short text field and conditions to pass the QR code field data to the short text field.

    3) the address will display at the notification form and relevant enquiry will be answered by different department.

    I'm not sure which form are you referring to here.
