How to Build the QR Scanner Feature


The QR Scanner feature is a useful tool that can scan any QR code your users come upon. A QR code is essentially a scannable URL. They're commonly used for promotional & informational purposes.

Great for these industries:

  • Conferences or Fundraisers
  • Restaurants

Monetization ideas:

  • Sell opportunities to post QR Codes that lead to sponsors' front-end websites.
  • Sell space in pamphlets or brochures with QR codes that lead to front-end sites.


Navigate to the Build tab to begin the setup process, then follow the steps below.


2. Choose the QR Scanner feature from the menu, then click SELECT.

3. Name your feature, then click ADD. Your new feature will now appear in the left-side menu.

4. Click on the feature to expand its menu. From the left-side menu you can:

  • use the checkbox to delete the feature.
  • click and drag the arrow icon to rearrange.
  • edit the feature icon by clicking it, then selecting a new image from the fly-up menu.
  • toggle on/off the feature.
  • jump to a specific section (i.e. Content or Custom Design) to adjust the feature settings.


Here you can rename the feature.

1. Under Screen Info, change your Screen/Feature Name or leave as-is. This is the name that will appear in the app's feature menu (e.g. "Scan Now" as opposed to "QR Scanner").

2. Click SAVE at the top right when you're done.

Custom Design

If you'd like create a custom design for this feature instead of using the Global Design, you'll do so here. Skip over this section if not. See here for more info.
