Managing Buddy QR codes in MyTrivec

This guide explains how to generate QR codes for use with Buddy. 

QR codes and Buddy

QR codes are scanned by Buddy users to load the website in the browser. Users can alternatively follow a link to the Buddy website. 

QR codes can direct to a certain workflow, e.g. Pick-up (printed on flyers), Table number (printed on table stands), and so on. 

To be able to complete this step, your MyTrivec username has to be registered as Site Owner. To request a change in site ownership, contact Trivec Support.

Workflow settings

  • Select the workflow and center you would like to create QR codes for:
    • Center: Determines which center the QR codes will point to. Select the ones that are used for Buddy. 
    • Ordering Mode:
      • Table Selection: QR code that prompts the user to enter the table number when ordering. 
      • Table Number: QR code for a single table number. Configure Table number to generate. 
      • Table range: Separate QR codes for a range of table numbers. Configure From (starting) and To (ending) table numbers to generate. 
      • Get tables from Domino: Separate QR codes for each table that exists in Domino. 
      • Pick-up: QR code that displays a pickup workflow page that prompts the user for an email address and pickup time. 
      • Digital Menu: QR code that displays a Digital Menu page (without checkout or payment functionality).

Graphic settings

  • Configure the visual design of the QR codes: 
    • Templates (Small/Medium/Large): Configures the size of the QR code. Larger templates have higher Error correction settings, making the QR codes more resistant to scratches and dirt. Make sure you increase the Dimensions to match the larger templates. Otherwise, the detail on a QR code could be too small for the camera to scan correctly. 
    • Dimensions: Configures the size of the QR code.
    • Background color: Configures the color of the background (try to maintain a high contrast ratio).
    • Fill Color: Configures the color of the QR code (try to maintain a high contrast ratio).
    • Error Correction: Configures how often information is repeated in the QR code, increasing its resistance to scratches and dirt. Note that small size and high Error Correction can cause the detail on a QR code to be too small for the camera to scan correctly. 
    • Min Version: Set as 1. Configures the QR code version.
    • Quiet Zone: Set as 2. Configures the padding (white space) around the QR code and improves QR code readability.
    • Rounded Corners: Smooths out the details of a QR code. A high setting can have a negative impact on readability.
