How can I print QR codes for my organization?

FMX allows you to print QR codes to attach to your Resources (locations), Equipment, and Inventory items. There are a few was to print your QR codes.

Option 1: Printing From a Word Document

  1. In the left side bar, click on what you want to print the QR code for (Resources, Equipment, or Inventory)
  2. Once you have navigated to either Resources, Equipment, or Inventory, select which items you would like to print by the filter button.
  3. Once you have filtered to the items you would like to print QR codes for, select “Export” in the top right corner of the page and find the section "Barcodes". Please select which format you would like to export in.
