Improve QR Code form functionality with the in-built calculator

Beaconstac's QR Code-based forms come with an in-built calculator to improve form functionality.

The calculator allows you to assign a score or price based on the answers. You can then use these scores to enhance logic jumps.

This is ideal for creating form-based quizzes, shopping carts etc.

For the purpose of this tutorial, we'll create a Covid-19 form that denies access to individuals who say yes to any 2 of the following:

  • Are experiencing Covid symptoms

  • Have come into contact with someone who has tested positive

  • Have been quarantined in the last 14 days

To do so, we have to create a logic jump that adds 1 every time the user replies with yes. If the total score is 2 or above, they will be denied entry.

Step 1: Create form

Create the QR Code-based form from the Beaconstac dashboard.

Add the questions above to the form. Ensure that the response type is objective.

NOTE - The calculator will only be able to assign scores to objective response types. Eg. MCQ, Yes or No, etc.

STEP 2: Click on ‘Calculator’ to assign a score

Select the three dots on the right of the question you wish to assign a calculation to and select 'Calculator'.

Next, click on ‘Add a calculation'.

We will add 1 to the total every time the user inputs 'yes' for any of the above questions. We'll assign this calculation to all three questions.

STEP 3: Set up the logic jump

Head over to the last question and select 'Logic jump' from the three-dot menu on the right. Next, click on the 'Add logic jump' button.

If the score is equal or greater than 2, it implies that the user has said yes to two or all of the above questions, making them a safety concern. We'll redirect them to the 'Access denied' page.

For all other cases (the user saying yes to one question, or saying no to all questions), the user is considered safe, and can be redirected to the 'Access granted' page.
