How to confirm badge QR codes for scanning
In order to ensure QR Codes are scanning, badge requirements will need to be confirmed. These include the overall badge design and ensuring any external QR codes or barcodes are going to work.
CMS badge codes
If using the Badge Creator and CMS-generated QR Codes, QR codes will read automatically. The only requirements to be confirmed will be the badge template.
External badge / ticket codes
If using QR codes or barcodes from an external system such as Eventbrite or iVvy, a new badge reference will need to be selected for the Suite to recognise the external QR codes, even when using the Badge Creator in the CMS. To confirm your external badge reference:
- Navigate to Badge Creator > Settings from the Navigation Menu
- Click the Advanced tab
- Select the relevant Regex Expression (badge reference) from the drop-down
- Click Save
Note: If using a custom Regex Expression, this will need to be configured separately.
