This article will describe how QR codes can be used with Teamgo and the benefits you will get using this feature.
What is a QR code?
A QR code is a machine-readable code consisting of an array of black and white squares, typically used for storing URLs or other information for reading by the camera on a smartphone. In the case of Teamgo, a QR code includes information on a person to identify them in the system, specifically their Teamgo ID so we can authenticate the person and collect.
Who can use a QR code?
There are several types of users who can use the QR code feature. You may find different ways to use QR codes as you explore the Teamgo system.
There are two main types of users of Teamgo. Visitors and Teams (people external and internal to your organisation).
- Visitors (contacts, guests) can use the front camera on the iPad to scan a QR code on arrival. This will speed up sign in time and also remember the visitor so they do not have to go through the full sign in process. Visitor QR codes can be printed to visitor badges when the visitor signs in, printed from the dashboard (badge reprint) or issued to the visitor as part of visitor pre-registration.
- Teams (staff, teams, users, contractors) can have QR codes printed to badges from the dashboard. Staff can scan their QR code on the front iPad camera to sign in/out for various reasons, the main one is typically tracking staff time and attendance on site. Badges can be printed to the connected Brother label printer or you can print from the dashboard to your browser print option, meaning you can print a Staff badge to any connected office printer. Teamgo customers would typically print a Staff badge to a plastic card printer.
