  • 1.  Launching form with a QR code (App-to-App Call)

    Posted 11-11-2021 15:48

    Looking for an alternate way to launch a form and maybe pass some pre-defined answers into the form? Why not have your users scan a QR code?? 

    QR codes can be generated to include a ton of valuable information and more specifically, you can include a URL. Using a QR code and an app-to-app call, you can launch the app, open a form and fill in answers with a quick scan. 

    Without getting into the nitty gritty details about app-to-app calls (because that can be found here) an app to app call will allow you to interact with the ProntoForms app in a different way.

    See a very basic sample below, when scanned will prompt you to launch the ProntoForms app. The QR Code below has the URL of: prontoforms://x-callback-url/open which will open the app. 

    Using this same technique, you can expand on your app-to-app call, create a few different QR Codes for different sets of forms or questions.

    Have you ever thought about using QR Codes to launch a form? Are you using it now?

    It had seemed to me that QR codes never really got the foot hold in North America that you saw in Europe and even more so in Asia until just recently.  I've been seeing them everywhere now, especially with all the changes businesses have made with Covid.  In the past year I've used QR codes to get access to restaurant menus, to fill out health forms, to make donations to charity, as well as for e-tickets for movies and shows, and of course to show my proof of vaccination.

    I'd love to hear how others are using QR codes and even if you're a fan of them or not just in your personal routines in addition to using them with ProntoForms!
