    One of your customers recently contacted us hoping to use our barcode scanning access control app (codeREADr). They need a barcode or QR code in an email after the attendee registers and pays.  

    You can do that with our barcode generator API (or use third-party open source code). But finally the ticket IDs (or email addresses) will need to be posted to our server for validation at the event, whether through the API, Zapier or CSV export.

    With whom should I discuss this use case? Many clients would like a similar solution.

    We have already a widget that will generate a QR code dynamically, you can take a look to it on the next link: http://widgets.jotform.com/app/dynamic_qr_code 

    However, we do not have a bar code generator. 

    I will forward this thread to our second level as a feature request, though we cannot ensure an ETA or if this would be implemented we will make sure to let you know about this if there are news. 

    I will also provide the email address you used to post this thread as contact as well as the link to your app.

    Thanks. Kevin. That dynamic QR widget is fine, you don't also need a barcode generator. What would be very valuable is to have the value embedded in the QR code posted to our server with an API upon registration. Can Zapier be set up to do that? I can set up an account on codeREADr and give you a Zapier invite if you want to test.

    I think this will be possible, for example, you could set up a Webhooks link where the info will be sent, then you could capture code sent in the QR Code, for example, when using the widget I shared above it will result as an input like this in the submissions: 

    This can be captured on your custom code, I'm not sure if Zapier will allow an integration between codeReadr and JotForm, but if you could  get the data I think this can be processed on your end. 

    Here're some links also about Webhooks and how to set it up in a JotForm:

    Here's also some other information that may help you: Send-POST-Data-From-JotForm-Using-PHP-in-Custom-Thank-You-Page

    However, I think this will only work with fixed data, I mean, this could be developed so far only to work with one user so far, if an integration as such is required then this needs to be developed in a deep way getting the info from the user's profile in JotForm and codeREADr as well. 

    If you would like to get more info also about our API, that will make possible to connect JotForm and other services, I would suggest you to visit this page: http://api.jotform.com/docs/ 

    And also there's the email to our API team where you could send your comments or questions and a developer should help you: api@jotform.com
