Attendees can have access to a personal SpotMe user QR code that is generated in Backstage.
The QR code is linked to their user profile in the workspace, and when used will pull information from the user profile.
Important: These SpotMe QR codes described below are very different to the SpotMe shortlink QR codes that can be configured and made available for your in-person attendees to scan at your event venue in order to trigger actions in the app.
Tip: If you are looking for information on how to use third party systems or user QR codes, more information is available in the using third party QR codes and platforms article.
