Using QR codes with SwipedOn Pocket

The SwipedOn Pocket app allows for employees to scan the QR code. This is mainly used when the require location verification setting is enabled.

🏳️ Available for Business and Enterprise 

The SwipedOn Pocket app is now QR code compatible and can facilitate and verify employee movements via QR code.

This feature is available for those subscribed to the Business plan or above. It is available for Android and iOS users running SwipedOn Pocket version 2.7.0 or later.

Employees using the SwipedOn Pocket app can now scan the QR code provided for visitors, opening the Pocket app and allowing the employee to sign in or out. The employee's movement will then appear with a green tick within the web dashboard next to the movement showing it was verified.

*Please note: If the employee scans the QR code and does not use the Pocket app, the QR code will show the visitor sign-in flow to complete instead.

How to download the QR code

The employees will complete verification using the same QR codes available for visitors to sign in and out. To download the static QR code, navigate to the 'Settings' > 'Employees' view of the web dashboard. Here you have the option to 'Generate a static QR code' in the form of a PNG or SVG file.

Alternatively, the QR code can be generated to display on the iPad or Android tablet by navigating to the 'Settings' > 'Welcome Screen' view and enabling the 'Display QR code for contactless sign in'. 

How to enable 'Require location verification'

For those businesses that need the employee sign-in to be verified onsite, we offer the 'Require location verification' feature within the 'Settings' > 'Employees' view of the SwipedOn web dashboard.

*Please note: If you do not have 'Require location verification' enabled, as shown above, the employee will still be able to scan the QR code when signing in. 

Once enabled, when the employee taps the arrow on the SwipedOn Pocket app to sign in, they will be prompted to scan the QR code to proceed through the sign-in process.

However, if the employee signs in within the range of the iPad or Android tablet proximity, which is around 50 meters depending on environmental factors, they will not need to scan the QR code.

The beacon will display a green circle animation around the employee profile photo to indicate on the Pocket app that they are on-site, with a tick showing against their movement on the 'Employees' > 'Timeline' view of the SwipedOn web dashboard.

How does this work in conjunction with Employee Roaming?

Employees who work across multiple locations can easily manage this via the SwipedOn Pocket app. Scanning the QR code will make this even easier! Once the employee has scanned the QR code, this will automatically update the employee to show at this location. They can then sign in and answer any sign-in questions.

The 'Employees' > 'Timeline' view of the SwipedOn web dashboard will display whether the sign-in movement has been verified. When an employee signs in within the beacon range of the iPad or Android tablet or using a QR code, a green tick will appear next to the employee's Timeline movements, as shown below.
