One of the benefits of becoming a registered user of the QReate & Track application is that you can change the URL that your QR Code points to even after you’ve created and printed it.

Here is an article on why you might need to do that… and how you can do it easily in our system.

Why You Might Need to Change Where Your QR Code Points

There are a number of reasons why you may need to change the URL inside of your QR Code after you’ve created it. This includes:

  • You made a type-o! Perhaps you left out the “http://”, you entered the wrong URL, or you simply misspelled the website address.
  • You need a QR Code to send to the printer… but you don’t have the mobile website ready yet that it will point to.
  • You’ve printed a sign or poster that promotes a generic and/or ever-changing message; thus, you want the ability to change where the QR Code on the sign points to (For example, a real estate sign that will go in front of a house until it is sold.. then it gets moved to a different house which has its own mobile website).
  • “It sounded like a great idea to point people to Site ABC three months ago. But our new mobile website, Site XYZ, is much better for a QR Code.”

How to Change Where Your QR Code Points To

If you ever find yourself in one of those situations, or any other one that requires you change the URL that a QR Code points to, here is how you can do it as a registered user of QReate & Track:

Step 1: Log-in to the QReate & Track application with the username that you used to initially create the QR Code.

Step 2: Find the QR Code on the left-hand menu; click on it to bring up its details.

Step 3: Scroll down and click the “Edit” button.

Step in Editing the URL that your QR Code points to

Step 4: On the Edit QR Code page, simply change the website address that you want the QR Code to point to in the Data field. Upon clicking Submit, our system will automatically update to redirect anyone else that scans the QR Code to point to the new website.
