QR Codes

Can I create a QR code so that people coming to visit my stand can scan it and open my app to register interest?

Re: QR Codes

Sadly both no, QR codes are not supported (yet)

also on a exhibition random people will come to your stand, Powerapps is intended for company known use.

in other words, only people within you office 365 tenant can acces.

There is one exception, that is if you make an external users known in your tenant, for example a known customer of yours.

 

Random acces is not allowed at the moment.

Re: QR Codes

Hi @Rammy1957 

In the situation where you want to collect customer details at an exhibition, you can accomplish this by building a Portal App. A Portal App can provide access for anonymous users that are external to your organisation. To build this type of app, select the Portal option from the main page.

The Portal creation process will prompt you to specify an address. You can specify an address such as https://rammy1957.powerappsportals.com

 

When this process completes, you can create your app in the Portal. Next, you can visit one of the online QR Code Generators such as this one:

https://www.qr-code-generator.com/

 

From here, you can generate a QR Code that points to your Portal Address. Anyone scanning this QR code will be redirected to your Portal and from here, they can complete your registration form.

 

Note that this feature is still in preview and that it works only with the CDS. You can find out more through the help page here.

Re: QR Codes

Hi @Rammy1957  ,

 

You can try using MS Forms if you want users to scan a QR code and to register interest and capture all the responses.

Then build a Flow that save the responses to SP list and create an app from there or build a powerBI report.

Please let me know if you need help setting this up.

Re: QR Codes

Hi @Rammy1957 ,

Do you want to create a QR code so that people could scan this QR code to open your canvas app?

 

If you want to create a QR code for other users (in your Org) to scan it to open your app, I think the Google Chart API could achieve your needs.

Please check and see if the following article would help in your scenario:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Community-Apps-Gallery/QR-Code-generator/td-p/199745

https://developers.google.com/chart/infographics/docs/qr_codes

 

I have made a test on my side, please check the following workaround:18.JPG

Add a Image control within an app, set the Image property to following:

 

"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chs=100x100&chl=https://web.powerapps.com/apps/5374afc0-b460-4121-866a-2829402a0061?tenantId=xxxxxxxx-f6a5-xxxx-89a9-xxxxx9d6c706"

Note: The 'https://web.powerapps.com/apps/5374afc0-b460-4121-866a-2829402a0061?tenantId=xxxxxxxx-f6a5-xxxx-89a9...' represents the Web URL of your Register canvas app.

You could get the Web URL of your Register canvas app as below:19.JPG

After that, the end users in your Org could scan above generated QR Code to open your app.

 

If you want the external users (outside your Org) could scan the QR Code to open your app, I afraid that there is no direct way to achieve your needs. Currenly, we could not share canvas app with external users.

 

As an alternative solution, I think the PowerApps Portal functionality could achieve your needs. You could consider create a PowerApps portal on your side, then embed your Register canvas app within it, then assign access permission of this Portal to these exernal users, after that, these external users could be able to access the embedded canvas app through the Portal.

More details about PowerApps Portal, please check the following blog:
