Creating dynamic QR codes in bulk is just a few steps away using Beaconstac's Zapier integration.
Zapier is an online automation tool that connects over 1,500 apps. You can create custom workflows so that when one action is triggered, an automated task starts running in the background. And, you can do all this without any coding or relying on developers.
Once you've set up your Zapier account you can get started with your bulk QR code uploads. This article will address how to upload QR codes that direct to URLs.
Step 1: Connect Beaconstac to Google Sheets
Connecting Google Sheets to Beaconstac will allow you to create a trigger that is activated when you enter a row in a Google Sheet. The new row will prompt Zapier to create a new Dynamic QR code in Beaconstac.
Step 2: Set up a trigger on Google Sheets that activates QR code creation
After you've connected Google Sheets to Beaconstac, you can set your trigger. The bulk QR code creator can be triggered when you create a new row in the sheet of your choice:
Step 3: Connect your Google Sheets account
Select the Google Sheets account that you want to connect to Beaconstac.
Step 4: Select the spreadsheet where you will input your bulk QR codes
After you've connected your Google Sheets account, you can search for the name of the document and worksheet you want to pull the data from.
Below is the template for a spreadsheet that you can use to input your dynamic QR code information. The template consists of three columns - Name, website URL, and Frame text (optional).
Step 5: Set up Zapier triggers for new rows
When you add a row to your spreadsheet you can select the additional row in the 'Test Trigger' section. In this example we've added a second row to the spreadsheet and are telling Zapier to trigger when Row B has been added to the spreadsheet:
You can test out the new row to see if it creates a dynamic QR code on Beaconstac by selecting 'Test & Continue':
Step 6: See your new QR codes in Beaconstac
When the test is successful, Zapier will show you which account the QR code has been uploaded to and the URL for the code:
After the test is successful, you can Turn On Zap.
Note - You can further customize the QR Codes created by this process using the template feature. To begin, create a template for your QR Codes on Beaconstac. Next, head over to the 'Create Dynamic QR code' action in your Zap and select the template you wish to use in the 'Set up action' section. All QR Codes created by this zap will now adhere to this template.
