    Is there a way to create bar code through JotForm without using third party?

    Asked by Mary on October 14, 2015 at 02:23 PM

    Dear sir,

    we often organise events, and we need to check and trace attendance. So, we Created a event registration form and used "unique ID" this widget provided by jotform to creat an unique ID on the registration form. Registers will receive a confirmation email/autoreponder email with barcode image. So, when they attend the event and show us this barcode on the confirmation email, we can use a scanner to scan the barcode to check and trace the attendance in order to know how many people attend the event. It just like the above sharing, we need to use 3rd party to generate the URL of barcode and copy and paste it on the confirmation email. Does Jotform has a way or widget to generate a URL of barcode instead of using 3rd party's barcode generator .

    based on our need, does Jotform has another way to accomplish it?

    Thanks a lot.

    If you are OK with QR codes you can check out the following widgets:

    QR code

    Dynamic QR code

    QR code reader

    These would allow you to avoid 3rd party and simply use JotForm widgets.

    Do let us know Mary if that would work for you.

    Dear Ben,

    Thanks for your reply and help!

    Well, how can I do to have QR code on the confirmation email? As I need to scan the QR code to check the attendance when registers show their confirmation email prior to the event.

    Once you have added the QR code widget to you form, it will appear under form fields for the email notifications.

    When sent it will be delivered as an image
