Posted: July 30th, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: General, QR Codes For Education, QR Codes Use Cases | No Comments »

Google Sites is a free website builder that lets you effortlessly create and share web pages for your campaigns and projects. This tool makes it easier for a user to lay out the pages without the need for coding. Helpful for educators, small business owners and entrepreneurs as well, Google Sites is one of the most effective ways to launch your online presence.

Once you have the web page created, a QR code can be used to redirect your readers and followers to your site. It can be used for an event, interactive learning or landing pages. Simply use QR Stuff’s Web Page URL data type and see it live upon scanning the QR code.

How To Use Google Sites

The new Google Sites makes the website building task a whole lot easier, letting you 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, whether it be text, images, videos or even entire presentations. Share it with your clients, followers and readers.

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 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.

Posted: January 17th, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: General, QR Codes For WiFi Network Sharing, QR Codes For WiFi Network Sharing, QR Codes Use Cases | No Comments »

At QR Stuff we make it super-easy to connect to a wireless network by simply scanning a QR code – and you can make your own WiFi Login QR code for free.

At work or at home, WiFi Login QR codes allow you to quickly and easily connect to your wireless network, and at WiFi hotspots in coffee shops, restaurants, and stores QR Codes can be used to connect instead of typing in the login credentials or having to ask a staff member for the password.

These Wifi Login QR codes work seamslessly and automatically on all Android devices, and any iPhones or iPads running iOS11. If your iPhone is running iOS10 or older then the WiFi login credentials will be displayed on screen so you can manually copy and paste them in.

How To Make A WiFi Login QR Code

  1. Go to www.qrstuff.com and select the “Wifi Login” data type from column 1. WiFi login QR codes are one of 23 data types available to free users, however if you become a paid subscriber you will also have access to our new Attendance Tracking QR codes, as well as QR codes for PDF documents and image files.
  2. In column 2 enter the SSID/Network Name, Password and Network Type for your office, home or in-store wireless network. This information is normally printed on a sticker on the back or the bottom of your router, or you can ask your IT person or service provider.
  3. You’re done! Just click on the “Download QR Code” button below the QR code preview image to save your finished WiFi Login QR code, then print it out and display it for anyone to log in to your wireless network.

Wireless Network QR Code

Important: In step #2 you need to select your Network Type (encryption standard) and the options are WEP, WPA, WPA2 or No Encryption. You must select the correct Network Type for your wireless network otherwise your WiFi QR code won’t work. You can read more about wireless network encryption standards here.

Print A Sheet Of Labels

Need to print a heap of your WiFi Login QR codes to have in convenient places all around your office or store? Creating sheets of QR code labels is another free standard feature at QRStuff.

Instead of clicking the “Download QR Code” button below the QR code preview image, move down the page to the “Output Type” and choose “Print”.

You will then be taken to a page where you will choose from a selection of common Avery label template layouts in either Letter or A4 size. If you are using generic labels then the Avery code that your labels are compatible with should be shown on your box or packet of label sheets. The sticker label layouts shown will print correctly on label sheets based on that Avery product code.

Once you’ve selected the label template you need, click “Download” to generate a preformatted printable PDF file containing multiple copies of your QR code sized and arranged to print onto the label sheet you chose above. The label template PDF can also be printed on single sheets of plain or adhesive paper, transparency film, or even iron-on transfer paper.

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

Using QR Codes With Surveys

Posted: October 3rd, 2017 | Author: | Filed under: General, QR Codes Use Cases, Using QR Codes With Surveys, Using QR Codes With Surveys | No Comments »

QR codes are a great way to connect your off-line survey participants to an online survey or questionnaire. Simply add a link to your survey to a QR code and print the QR code on your posters or flyers, in your print-based customer mail outs, or in your catalogue or brochure.

Just follow the simple steps shown below to make a free, non-expiring QR code for your survey at QRStuff.com.

Get Your Survey Link

We’re assuming you’ve already created your survey so now you’ll need to find the URL of your survey so that you can use it in your QR code. We’ve included some instructions for the two most popular DIY survey platforms – Survey Monkey and Google Forms – but the process will be similar with other services as well.

If you’re using Survey Monkey:

  1. Go to the “Collect Responses” section of your survey.
  2. Choose the “Web Link” collector type.

  1. The default survey link will look something like https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/P58B9BX, or like https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MySurvey if you’ve created a Custom link.
  2. Copy this link to use for your QR code (more on that later).

If you’re using Google Forms:

  1. Open your survey and click the “Send” button in the top right corner of the page.
  2. Choose “Link” (and optionally shorten the URL if you like).
  3. Copy the displayed link to use for your QR code (more on that later).

Create Your QR Code

  1. Go to QRStuff.com to create a QR code for your survey or questionnaire.
  2. Select “Website URL” as your data type in column 1.
  3. Paste your survey link (from the steps shown above) into the box provided.
  4. Select whether you wish to make a static or a dynamic QR code (more info about this here).
  5. QR code styling is available for paid subscribers however free users can change the foreground colour of their QR code in column 3.
  6. Click the “Download QR Code” button to download your finished QR code.


Don’t Forget – Our Free QR Codes Don’t Expire!

The free QR codes that you make with us at QRStuff.com, like these survey QR codes, are fully functional, aren’t time-limited, and don’t expire – no 14 day cripple-ware here, just the QR codes you need to get the job done.
