What are Smart Rules?

Sam Sam

If you want to create a Flowcode that redirects to a different destination based on time of day, day of week, or scanner's device type, add a Smart Rule. Smart Rules are included with the Flowcode Pro (add link to /pro page) plan, allowing you to set custom conditions for your codes.

With Smart Rules, you can create a singular Flowcode that redirects to multiple destinations. The destination that a scanner lands on is determined by the type of Smart Rule you add. You have the option to redirect your scanners based on their device type (to direct them to the correct application store), the time of day that the scan takes place, or the day of the week. This provides your customers/audience with a custom, dynamic experience. You can add up to 10 Smart Rules per Flowcode. Learn how to use them HERE.

Example 1: If you are marketing an app and want to use Flowcode to increase downloads, you would add a device-type Smart Rule. This allows you to redirect scanners based on the type of device (iOS or Android) they are using to scan your Flowcode. Then, you would input two different scan destinations: your app on the iOS App Store and your app on the Android App Store. When someone scans your code, they will be automatically redirected to the appropriate app store.

Example 2: If you are a restaurant using Flowcode as your contactless menu solution, instead of having separate Flowcodes for your lunch and dinner menus, you could add a Smart Rule based on time of day. When customers scan the menu at lunchtime, they will be redirected to the lunch menu. After a certain hour (determined by you), customers will be automatically redirected to the dinner menu.

Example 3: If you are a bar that offers different drink specials each day of the week, create a Flowcode with a day-of-week Smart Rule. Upload a unique menu or link for each day so that when customers scan your contactless menu, they are automatically redirected to that day's specials.
