Overview of QR codes
Quick Response codes are codes that can be scanned via a mobile phone and provide a great way to share a page (and other information too, if needed).
See below for an example of a QR code; try opening your smartphone camera and scanning it! (spoiler: it will take you to the Grassrootz home page)
QR codes can be:
- Scanned directly from a screen.
- Printed onto a piece of paper and scanned from there.
- Printed onto clothes and scanned there too!
Generating a QR code for your fundraising page
All Grassrootz fundraising pages allow you to generate a QR code. To start, visit the fundraising page you wish to generate a code for.
The sharing widget (expanded below) will allow you to share your page on a number of social media platforms, as well as generate a QR code for your page.
The buttons above (from left to right) will:
- Open the QR generation window.
- Copy the link to the current page.
- Share via Facebook.
- Share via Twitter.
- Share via LinkedIn.
When the modal opens, the QR code will load automatically!
If you need to obtain a bigger version of the QR code (for printing or other uses), click on the Download button to obtain a high-quality PNG version of the QR code.
Branded QR codes
As you have noticed, Grassrootz automatically adds the logo of the organisation/charity that the fundraising page benefits.
If you have access to the Grassrootz admin, you can disable this branding, should you wish to do so.
