Google sheets and QR codes


Tips for getting the best results when using QR Sidekick to update your sheets from a barcode:

  1. Update your phone with the most recent patches. Most modern smartphones have built-in barcode scanners that get better in each new version of the OS.
  2. Open the QR Sidekick app. The app will find and detect the barcode in the frame.
  3. Make sure the barcode is well-lit. If the barcode is too dark or too bright, your phone may have difficulty scanning it.
  4. Hold your phone steady. If you move your phone too much while scanning the barcode, the app may not be able to scan it correctly.
  5. Try from different angles. If you’re having trouble scanning a barcode, try holding your phone at a different angle.
  6. Clean the lens. If your phone’s camera lens is dirty, it can affect the quality of the scan. Wipe the lens with a clean, soft cloth before scanning the barcode.
