Here's how you can get started with QR codes in the Beaconstac dashboard. After you sign up, you will be able to start creating QR codes. 

How to create dynamic QR codes

1. Choose the type of QR code

For the purpose of this tutorial, we will create a Website QR Code.

2. Enter the relevant details

For a Website QR code, you must enter the URL.   

If you have multiple language versions of your website you can enable Multi-language support. When enabled, this tool will allow the QR code to detect the language the user has on their phone and will direct them to the corresponding website that you set in the platform. If the user has a language on their phone that you have not created a link for, it will send them to the Default website that you've selected (in this case English is the default language).

3. Customize the QR Code

You can customize several parts of the QR code, including the colors, the eyes, the pattern, and the frame. You can also add a background color or image. 

To change the color of the QR code, click on the dropdown (if you are using a gradient click 'color start' and' color end'). You can add a hexcode or choose a color from the palette. 

We have a ton of other customization features. Make sure you check out our step by step guide to create designer QR Codes

To add a logo, you can either drag and drop an image or choose one from your gallery. You can also choose one of our pre-set logos. You can adjust the logo size from 0 to 100 - the logo below is set to the largest possible size.

The QR code creator will inform you of how scannable the code is along the way, but ideally we recommend using your smartphone to test the QR code to make sure the colorful QR code is scannable as well, particularly if you are using a background image. Learn how to scan your QR code on iOS and Android here.

You can also add a custom frame with the color and text of your choosing. If you want to remove your frame simply click 'Remove'.

Finally, you can also choose to secure sensitive information linked to your QR Code using a password. To do so, click on 'Show advanced settings' at the bottom of the customization page.

Find the switch under 'Password protection' and turn it on. Next, enter the password you wish to use for the QR Code. Keep in mind that the password must be at least character in length.

Users will then need to enter the password every time they scan your QR Code to access the information it contains.


4. Save or download the QR code
You can either save the QR code for later or download it in PDF, EPS, SVG or PNG format. You can also print the QR code. 

5. Edit the QR Code

Dynamic QR codes are editable. Even if you've printed out the QR code, you can still go back and change the URL. 

Click on 'QR Codes' in the left hand panel and you will see a list of all the QR codes you've created. 

Click on 'Edit' and follow steps 2 through 4 to customize your QR code.
