Basics of QR Code Management
Apply filters to quickly identify the Asset, Component, or Parts needed to generate a QR code. These filter fields are applied either to the Asset Profile or Parts Profile. Review Asset Management and Inventory Management to learn more about the available filters in the tool.
+ Unlinked QR Codes
Generate an unlinked QR Code to later link them to an Asset. Once scanned you will be able to select from the asset table which asset to link the scanned QR Code to.
Column settings allow you to configure which columns display on either the Asset, Component, or Parts Tables when reviewing the QR Code Generator Tables.
Generate New and Print Selected
Once an Asset, Component, or Part is checked you may Generate New QR Code or Print Selected QR Code. Generating a New QR Code will override any existing codes associated with the asset, component, or part. Printing Selected will print an additional existing QR Code.
QR Code Scanner
Any QR Code scanner can scan a Redlist QR Code. If the Mobile App is installed on the device it will default to display the Asset Profile or Public Portal in the Mobile Apps. If the mobile app is not installed it will display the asset profile or Public Portal in the Web App.
Public Portal: A public portal is a client-facing tool to display specific form submissions and documents to anyone who has access to the QR Code. The QR Code must be marked as Public and is accessed after printing a QR Code. This is commonly used to display OSHA documents to whom they apply. Components and Parts are not available in the Public Portal.
Asset Profile: The Asset Profile is where all Asset information is available. Navigate to Resources > Equipment > Select an Asset to view the Asset's Profile.
Scannable fields on Forms: Navigate to Forms > Manage > Select a Template > Edit > Text > Input Type > VIN and Scannable Tag to apply scannable questions on a form. These questions will populate the data scanned whether it is a VIN or text string from any Barcode or QR Code. Additionally, you may populate asset data from a Dropdown question Forms > Manage > Select a Template > Edit > Dropdown > Asset > Scan Asset. This will require a scan from a physical QR Code on the built form to populate the Asset question.
Assets may be utilized throughout the entire platform. You may attach them to Job Assignments within Operations, Maintenance and HSE Tasks, and Forms. Review Asset Management to learn more. Once configured properly these assets will maintain their history and store it on the Asset Profile. Specific history and documentation are available to Clients if QR Codes are marked as Public. Review QR Code Scanner for more details. If QR Codes are not marked as public; scanning the code will display the Asset Profile.
