QR code bulk upload is a feature available in Pro and Ultima plans that allows you to create multiple QR codes at once by uploading an Excel sheet with QR data.
Follow these steps to create QR codes in bulk using the bulk uploading feature.
Note: For this tutorial, we’re creating vCard Plus QR codes in bulk. You can follow these steps for all solutions that support bulk uploading. If a solution supports this feature, you’ll see the Bulk Upload toggle at the top.
Part 1: Adding the data
Follow these steps to upload the Excel file containing QR data:
Open the vCard Plus QR code page, and check the ‘Bulk Upload’ option.
Click on ‘Download Sample File.’ A sample Excel file will be downloaded.
Refer to the file to understand how to add data in an Excel file for bulk uploading. Now, create a new Excel file or edit the existing Sample File and enter the QR information.
Note: To add images, you can upload them to the File Manager and copy their URL in the Excel sheet.
Click on ‘Upload Data File.’ Enter a name for your QR code bulk upload, select a folder (optional), and click on ‘Save.’
Note: For solutions that aren’t dynamic by default, you can choose to create a static or dynamic bulk upload.
Select the data file and open it. A Map Fields popup will appear, showing the QR Fields and Sheet Fields. You can map QR fields to the Sheet fields if needed.
Note: Make sure that the Map QR fields and Sheet fields match.
Click on ‘Upload.’ A Validation Success popup will appear if the data is validated, and the bulk QR code batch will be added to the QR Codes Bulk List in your dashboard.
