Scan a QR code to open a Portal App and populate Portal app with data assigned to the QR code

Hi,

 

Case: We have a event coming up, around 400ish people would attend this event. Every attendee get's a pendant with his own barcode. The idea is that people would browse to a Portal App we make and login with Azure AD. There they have a barcode scanner to scan other peoples QR code and see basic details about that person and this would be linked to a simple game with a few questions about this person.

 

#1 We were thinking about doing this in a Portal App because there would be a lot of external people coming.

 

#2 Is it possible to scan person A's QR code from within a Portal App , this would open up a new screen in the app and start the game which should have a few very basic details about person A (name etc).

 

Best Regards,

Anthony

Hey! The QRCode needs to have that information... The rest is possible...
For example, I have an aplication for cars and I scan a QRCode with the license plate and, after that, I do a lookup on a form to show me the detail of that scan

 

The question MUST be asociated with the person in order to work...

@Nogueira1306 ,

 

So a Qr code scanner is a feature control in a Power Apps Portal? And it would be possible to open another screen inside that Power Apps Portal with that persons details which you scanned?

I am not sure if it exists in Power Apps Portal.. But it exists on Canvas app.

 

Yes. You just need to save the value that you scanned into a var.

 

For example, your scanner hAs this value:
Name: Gonçalo

 

On property OnScan set this: Var(Scanned, BarcodeScanner.Value); Navigate(NewScrenn, None)

 

On the new screen add a textbox and insert the var Scanned as default

Anyone who can confirm a way to use a barcode scanner in a Power Portal App? A canvas app can not be used in this case.
