QR Code suggestion for FamilySearch Centers
This idea is not original with me. It comes from a question that was raised last Wednesday evening June 21 during the Center Chatter meeting. The idea is that a QR Code can be created as a link to the URL for a specific ‘Help Article’ which provides instruction for how to do specific actions in FamilySearch. Then a patron/guest or worker at the FamilySearch Center could use the QR Code to link to the Help Article when they are wanting to do a specific action and want to follow the Help Article instruction. The idea that was raised at the meeting was that individuals could create their own QR Codes at individual Centers.
My suggestion would be to have the individuals at FamilySearch who create or amend Help Articles also create a downloadable QR Code to link to the URL for the specific Help Article. Then each Center can download the QR Code for the Help Articles that would be helpful in the Center. The QR Code then becomes available as a quick link tool on their cell/mobile devices, for the people at the Center.
We see the use of QR Codes at the Centers already happening with the new signage for inside doors, which has a QR Code on the sign.
