QR Codes For Event Sign-Up Pages

Posted: August 17th, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: General | No Comments »

Conducting an event soon? Whether you’re having a school fair, sporting event or a gathering that needs an RSVP from attendees, it is important to have participants register. Traditionally, registrations are done on paper. But what if participants use QR codes to let them sign up for these events?

Google Sites is a free website builder that lets you effortlessly create and share landing pages with your customers. This tool makes it easier for a user to lay out the pages without the need for coding. With QR Stuff, you can connect the page you created using Google Sites through the use of QR codes.

How To Create Event Sign-Up Pages In Google Sites

The new Google Sites makes building your landing page a whole lot easier, allowing you to accomplish more projects in the long run. It provides a ready-made platform that consists of a drag and drop feature for all the materials you need for your event.

Event pages often need to have sign-up forms in the layout to collect important information from participants. Google Forms can be embedded in your website, which can then be linked through a QR code.

1. Create Your Site. To get started on Google Sites and begin creating the website, click the plus sign button located on the lower right-hand corner of your screen. You’ll be directed to an Untitled page, so you must enter a unique name to keep track of your site. This site document name is only viewable by you, and by others after you have published the site. Take note that you need to have two or more pages in your website for the site name to appear.

2. Select A Theme. The appearance of your website means a lot. Select from any theme in the Google Sites gallery, which goes along with adjusting font styles, colours and backgrounds.

3. Add Content. Click “Insert” or double-click on the portion of the page where you want to add content. You can add forms, text boxes, URLs of other web pages, photos, videos, documents and files from Google Drive or Google Embeds.

4. Publish Your Site. Click “Publish” and be re-directed to a pop-up box where you have to enter a unique name to the end of your URL. The URL is editable anytime, provided that no other users have registered those particular words in the web domain. Preview your site’s URL to confirm that your site published correctly. There are more functionalities on Google Sites waiting to be explored.

Using Google Forms

To include the sign-up page for your event, it is highly recommended to use Google Forms. First, log in to your account and once signed in, click the plus button and wait to be re-directed to the template. Or, you may choose from other existing templates on the platform.

Place the title of the form and add questions as you would like. Questions can be in the form of multiple choices, checkboxes or a drop-down. You may also choose to format the answer in a short statement, an entire paragraph, or in date and time.

Once done, the sign-up form you just created is automatically saved on Google Drive so you can add the Google Forms sign-up to your Google Sites as you connect them with your QR codes.

How To Create A QR Code For Events Using Google Sites

1. Go to QRStuff.com and select Website URL as your data type in Column 1.

2. In Column 2, enter the Google Sites URL for your event page. Make sure that the URL contains the sign-up you earlier created via Google Forms.

3. Select the foreground colour for your QR code in Column 3. If you’re a paid subscriber you will also be able to set the image size, resolution, output file type (PNG, JPG, TIF, EPS, SVG, PDF or DXF) and error correction level. Paid subscribers can also choose a QR code template from a variety of available designs in the gallery.

4. Click the “Download QR Code” button and your landing page QR code is ready for use.

Make It A Bit Fancy

While free users can change the foreground colour of their QR code, paid subscribers have the ability to also change the appearance of the QR code image and embed a logo or image in its centre. Just use the steps outlined above to create your Website URL QR code for your event registration page, and then, before you download your finished QR code, click the “Style Your QR Code” button to change its appearance.

Here is an example that shows what could be done to the Website URL QR code created above using our QR Code Styling feature. Our styling interface allows you to make your QR code more visually distinctive and, by embedding a suitable image, perhaps more intuitive as well.

QR Codes For Free Landing Pages

Posted: August 2nd, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: General | No Comments »

QR codes can be used for your websites. A good landing page is one of the secrets to digital marketing success. Landing pages encourage customers to sign up for a deal, participate in a promotion or subscribe to offers. This is known as a “call-to-action” (CTA).

Google Sites is a free website builder that lets you effortlessly create and share landing pages with your customers. This tool makes it easier for a user to lay out the pages without the need for coding. With QR Stuff, you can connect the page you created using Google Sites through the use of QR codes.

How To Create Landing Pages In Google Sites

The new Google Sites makes building your landing page a whole lot easier, allowing you to accomplish more projects in the long run. It provides a ready-made platform that consists of a drag and drop feature for all the materials you need for your digital marketing campaigns.

Landing pages and their layouts depend on the type of web page being created. A landing page can either be a CTA to subscribe, a sign-up form or an invitation to a specific promotion a business offers. We used the first option as an example, a CTA for a subscription.

1. Get Started. To get started on your Google Sites landing page, click the plus sign button located on the lower right-hand corner of your screen. You’ll be directed to an Untitled page, so you must enter a unique name to keep track of your page.

2. Select Your Theme And Add Content. Select any theme in the Google Sites gallery. You can also choose font styles, colours and backgrounds within the theme. Then, click “Insert” or double-click on the portion of the page where you want to add content. You can add text boxes, URLs of other web pages, photos, videos, documents and files from Google Drive or Google Embeds.

3. Lay Out The Page. For this example, the layout shows different portions of the page divided into various sections. The header image is separate from the introductory text, main features of the subscription, pricing and further details about the product. It is a blend of text, images, and links.

4. Create Your CTA Link. One of the most important elements of a landing page is the CTA link, and this is what makes it different from other websites out there. An effective landing page contains a single CTA link that users can click on when they are ready to take action. Using Google Sites, this can be created as an image, a block of text, or maybe even a video, that hyperlinks into the subscription page.

5. Publish Your Site. Click “Publish” and be re-directed to a pop-up box where you enter a unique name to the end of your URL. The URL is editable anytime, provided that no other users have registered those particular words in the web domain. Preview your site’s URL to confirm that your site published correctly. There are more functionalities on Google Sites waiting to be explored.

Students Attendance Tracking QR Codes

Posted: July 19th, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: General | No Comments »

QR codes can now replace the old style of using pen and paper, or a roll call in class to check student attendance. Create an attendance tracking QR code using QR Stuff for tracking attendance in class in a modern and organized way with Google Sheets and Google Drive.

It is very easy to create and to make use of this QR code especially with the built-in features on QRStuff.com. Using the QR code generator ensures integrity as the website also provides information about the device used for scanning.

This data type is a standard part of the QR Stuff paid subscriber feature set and is available to all full subscribers. Become a paid subscriber now.

Create Your Students Attendance Tracking QR Code

  1. First up, choose the Attendance Tracking data type from column 1.
  2. In column 2 click on the “Google Sheet Name” field. You will then be asked to log into your Google account which will give us the authority to create the tracking spreadsheet in your Google Drive, and then update it on your behalf as each scan event is recorded. (Please note that this access authority is limited exclusively to the tracking spreadsheet only and doesn’t give us any other user or access privileges for your Google account.)

  1. In the “Google Sheet Name” field enter the name you would like to give your tracking spreadsheet, and complete the 3 fields for “Location”, “Action” and “Event Description” – these 3 fields will be recorded in your spreadsheet. For example, if you’re having a class lecture in Room 101 and you’d like to record student attendance, you would enter Room 101 as the Location, Attendance as the Action, and Lecture Class as the Event Description.
  2. At this stage, you can download your completed QR Code by clicking the “Download QR Code” button.

Scan And See It in Live On Google Sheets

Now that you have the Attendance Tracking QR code ready, students can scan the code, which may be displayed in front of the room, posted on the bulletin board or sent to them via email. Once the QR code is scanned and their name is filled out, they will appear present on the Google Sheet that you provided when you generated the QR code earlier.

However, before students are entered into the attendance roll, they have to key in particular information requested by the system. When the QR code is scanned by the student, the location, action and event description details that you specified above are displayed, and the person scanning the QR code is asked to enter some details to identify them. Clicking on “Go” confirms their attendance check-in and records their details in your Google Sheet.

For instructors and administrators who want to access the master list of students who are in the class, perhaps for random calling of names during recitation, they can log into Google Docs at https://docs.google.com using the Google Account that you specified in Step 2 above. The spreadsheet you authorised us to create and update on your behalf will be displayed in the list of available sheets. Further information on this access can be found here.
