One of the things that sets Flowcode apart from other QR providers, is that all Flowcode QR codes are dynamic. This means that you can change the scan destination and other characteristics at any point.

Find your code

1. Upon logging into your Flowcode account, you’ll be brought to your Flowcode dashboard. Click Assets on the lefthand side toolbar.

2. After accessing Assets, you will see the Flowcodes and/or Flowpages that have recently been created. Click on the code directly from your Dashboard, or search for the code's name you'd like to edit in the search bar.

3. Upon clicking on the code, you will be re-directed to the Code Details page. ‍Once here, you have the ability to change the scan destination of your code, edit how it looks, and more!


Now we’ll walk you through each of the tabs and what capabilities they have.

Overview

The Overview tab is for quick access to codes (i.e., scan destination, design, downloading, etc).

‍This page enables you to take high level actions like downloading and editing your codes.

1. Scan destination

All Flowcodes are dynamic, which means that you can update their scan destination at any point and as often as you’d like. Changing a Flowcode QR-code’s scan destination can be done in this section of the Code Overview page.

Click the Destination dropdown to see all the same options that first appeared when creating the code (i.e., Website, File, SMS, etc).

Select which destination type you'd like to change it to, and input the information to the right of the Destination box. Click Save to update your code in real-time.

2. Download

The Download on the right-hand side of the screen is where you’ll discover how to print, download, and bring your Flowcode into the real world.

Next to the Download dropdown, click on PNG. This will prompt you to select which file format you’d like to download the code as:

  1. PNG: 300 DPI transparent. High quality file with a transparent background. Typically used the most in web, design and print materials. The image can be easily placed over a background of a picture, block of color or pattern.

  2. JPG: Your basic image file type. Flowcode JPEG comes with white background, not a transparent background like with a PNG. Quality is significantly lower than PNG files.

  3. SVG: (Scalable Vector Graphic) for placement on high-resolution artwork intended. When using your Flowcode for printing on merchandise and other mediums, printers may request this file type because it allows you to open in Adobe Illustrator and interact with individual layers. Not suitable for photos as they are meant for dealing with figures, lines, etc. for print and merchandise.

  4. EPS: A file intended for professional and high-quality image printing. Used to produce attention-grabbing, detailed images such as billboards and large posters.

  5. PDF: A high-quality document file. Used most commonly for email and print.

  6. Transparent background: (PNG, SVG, and PDF).

For print materials, such as flyers, business cards, or brochures, we recommend PNG files. For larger assets, like billboards or banners, an SVG would be the best option. If you’re ever unsure, ask your printing partner which file type they need.

The code will automatically save to your device upon clicking Download. You can then access it from your device’s Downloads folder.

3. Copy code link

When you are ready to share your code, the Copy button allows users to easily copy the code link to their clipboard.

This convenient option simplifies the process of sharing the code link across various platforms, including emails, social media posts, messaging apps, and more.

4. Duplicate Code

‍The Duplicate Code feature provides a hassle-free way to create a new code that maintains the same design and scan destination as the original code.

This functionality allows you to effortlessly generate multiple unique codes while keeping track of individual scan statistics for each code.

5. Edit Design

Similar to the code's scan destination, you can also edit its design at any point. All the same options you had when first creating a code will be available here, including adding custom calls to action (CTAs), uploading a logo, and more!


Advanced

In the Advanced tab, users with paid plans have access to features such as smart rules, custom redirect links, advanced geolocation, and tags for their codes.

Smart rules

Users are able to set multiple end destinations and conditions for a single code without having to create an entirely new one. You are able to create a Flowcode that redirects users to a different destination based on things such as time of day, day of the week, or the scanner’s device type.

Learn more about smart rules here.

Custom redirect link

A custom redirect link is a URL that you can specify to be the destination of a Flowcode scan. This allows you to redirect scans from your codes to a domain that is not connected to Flowcode.

Learn more about setting up a custom redirect here.

Advanced geolocation data

By activating this feature upon scanning your code, consumers grand you access to their most precise location data, allowing you to gain invaluable insights to help amplify the growth of your brand.

Tags

Users have the ability to assign various tags to their Flowcodes, facilitating their categorization and labeling. This useful feature ensures optimal organization for all of your codes.


Settings

The Settings tab is where you’ll find all the design-related Flowcode management tools.

Details

Owner: who created the code - if you're part of a Flowcode Team, the owner could be someone else who made the code and shared it with you.

Location: where in your account the code lives - if no Folder is specified, it is in your regular Dashboard.

Created: date the code was created.

Color space: describes a specific, measurable, and fixed range of possible colors and luminance values. Most codes will be RGB, but we also support CMYK in custom code designs.

Scan destination: where the code scans to.

Code Link: the code's redirect link - necessary for any QR code and leads to the scan destination.

Support file formats: all format types the code can be downloaded as.

Manage access

In the Who has access section, users can easily share their Flowcodes with others, granting them access and collaboration privileges. This feature allows for streamlined workflows and efficient coordination among team members or departments involved in marketing campaigns or customer engagement initiatives.

Users have the flexibility to selectively share their codes with specific individuals or teams, or even with their entire organization for broader reach.

Learn more about Teams and permissions here.

Click Manage access to share with other Members of your Team and assign permissions.

Transfer Ownership

Transferring your code to another account can be a useful feature in certain scenarios. It allows you to grant full functionality and ownership of your Flowcode to a new user, enabling them to manage and control the code moving forward.

Note: transferring ownership of a code means you will no longer have access to it.

Save a design template

Users can save a design that they previously made as a template to create future designs off of. This feature allows for efficiency and uniformity amongst different codes created by a company.

Learn more about Templates here.

Archive code

Users don’t need to worry about accidentally deleting a Flowcode as our archive feature is where all created codes will be stored for 90 days! Codes in the archives can be either restored or fully deleted from your account.

Learn more about the Archive here.
