Manage External QR Codes [Badge Reference]

How to manage external QR Codes or barcodes

When configured correctly in the CMS external QR codes or barcodes can be used with the Entegy Suite.

This may be required when name badges are printed from an external registration provider, or registration tickets with external codes are used to:

  • Print badges from a Kiosk
  • Scan for Lead Capture
  • Scan for Attendance Tracking

Before external codes can be used by the Entegy Suite, the CMS must be configured to read the data format (Regex Expression) of the external code.

Once configured in the CMS external codes will be recognised by the Entegy Suite, alongside any CMS generated QR codes.

To configure your external code in the CMS:

  1. Navigate to Badge Creator > Settings > Advanced from the Navigation Menu
  2. Select the appropriate Regex Expression

When a custom Regex Expression has been configured the external code data needs to be imported into the CMS.

Import external code data into the CMS:

When importing your profile data, ensure the column containing the badge reference is assigned the ‘QR Code’ option from the CMS Field name drop-down.

When external code data is successfully imported into the CMS it will display in an attendee’s profile data as their Badge Reference.

Here is an example of a Badge Reference from an imported external code:
