With the major update to Scanova QR Code Generator released on Oct 13, 2020, the feature of tags was introduced (previously known the 'Campaign Folder' or 'Campaign').
Using Tags is a flexible way to group/organize/manage your QR Codes by adding single or multiple 'tags' or 'labels' to them. Note that there is no limit on the maximum number of tags that can be assigned to a single QR Code. These tags will allow you to not only search the QR Codes (from the My QR Codes section) but also view analytics (by tag/s).
How to add tags to a QR Code
- You can add a tag during the creation of QR Code. You have to first enter the contents that will be linked to the QR Code, and then the Create QR Code screen will be presented. This screen will have a field called Tags in which you can enter the name of the tags which will help you in categorizing that particular QR Code
- You can also add a tag after the creation of the QR Code. Simply go to My QR Codes, click on Add Tag option which appears below the name of the QR Code and then provide the name of the tag(s)
Note: Whenever you type the name of a tag you have to hit Enter, an ellipitical box will appear around that tag and then you can click on Save. You can always check if a tag is saved or not under the My QR Codes section.
How to use tags for retrieving select QR Codes (My QR Codes)
You can search for QR Codes via tags if you have a group of QR Codes intended for a specific purpose and you have already tagged these QR Codes with a name.
Simply navigate to Filters at the top, choose the tags from the dropdown, and then click on Search. Note that when you choose multiple tags in the dropdown list, the application will search for QR Codes that have all selected tags (AND operation).
How to use tags to retrieve analytics data of select QR Codes (Analytics)
Analytics section also has the feature of extracting the scan data for a group of QR Codes using just the tag name instead of the QR Code names.
In Analytics, navigate to the section Select QR Codes or tags, choose the option of tags from the dropdown, select the tags for which you want to see the Analytics, select the date range and click on Get Analytics.
