    I understand that you want to get a QR code to be generated based on the answers in the form. Please take a look at the Dynamic QR widget that generates the QR Code on the form after filling the fields.

    Please Let us know if you are referring to something different. We will be happy to help.

    I am aware of the QR Code Widget that generates a QR Code. In my instance however, each user filling out the form will already have their own individual QR code, linked to my URL. Once they enter a 6 digit alpha-numeric code, the profile information they entered previously on my jotform and saved on a pdf file, will automatically come up.
    Thanks,

    I want the user to enter in their QR Code and have all their form information come up.

    I'm sorry that I was not able to get your requirement completely. Do you mean to get the information from the data which was already submitted through a JotForm? Is the 6 digit alpha numeric code provided as a unique code after submitting the form? Could you provide us with the URL so that we can better understand your requirement?

    Please provide us with an example or a screenshot so that we can provide you with necessary assistance. We will wait for your response. Thanks!

    I am looking to do this in reverse order from the norm. The pet owner will first get a pet tag with a QR Code from their Vet that we provide. They will then go online and fill out the jotform with the QR number on the tag to register the pet.
    Once this is done the pet will have its own individual QR Code as part of my URL link. If the pet gets lost, a Smartphone user can scan the tag and alerts and a GPS location goes to the pet owner. Also, if the pet owner wants to look up their pets records, they will enter my URL with their QR code into the jotform box, and the form they previously submitted pops right up.
    My URL is www.animarx.com

    Thank you providing additional information. I understand that you want the users to submit the form with the QR code on the pet tag to register the pet. Once the form is submitted, the submission will be having its own individual QR code to view the submission. This code can be entered by the user to search for the pet information. Unfortunately, it is not supported to search for the submission data from JotForm submissions at the moment. Also, the QR code widget can only generate an image based on a particular field to search for the submission data.

    However, you may consider submitting the form data to a MySQL database so that you can search for the records from the database. But, it requires some customization to the forms using its source code and require some PHP coding knowledge. You may hire a developer from freelancing webistes like upwork, elance, etc.

    Thank you!

    Would Dropbox be an option to store and access each users data?

    This would actually require a specific code to be programmed into your own website, so DropBox would not do.

    Only then would you be able to do this, but that would require you to follow the steps in the above guide mentioned by my colleague on saving the data to your Database, so that you can hire some developer to build you the look-up option.
