About QR Codes

You can insert a quick response (QR) code into a document or topic using the XML Editor. A QR code is a type of barcode that can be read by devices such as smart phones. The data encoded in the QR code can be text, a website URL, an email address, contact information, or SMS (Short Message Service, which is used for sending text messages). Basically, QR codes are a way to bridge the gap between a static print document and searchable, more detailed online information at your fingertips

There are many different kinds of QR code readers on the market. If you have a mobile device that supports QR code readers, you can install an app and use it to read these types of codes.
