Currently, our users can generate QR codes containing information about the construction files and folders stored and used through their Buildern account.

By generating and attaching these codes at various places on the jobsite, field workers can easily access files without the need for a mobile application or signing in Buildern. You can also place QR codes on equipment manuals, safety protocols, and construction plans. This ensures that everyone on site can quickly obtain the necessary information simply by scanning the code with their phone camera.

Here’s how to generate your construction QR codes in just a few clicks:

Step 1. Go to Your Project's File Library

First, log in to your account and navigate to the project's file library where your documents are stored securely.

Step 2. Select the Files or Folders

Next, identify and select the file you'd like to turn into a QR code. Buildern users have the flexibility to create QR codes for individual files and folders or generate them in bulk.

Generate a QR code for a single file or folder

Click on the three little dots at the end of the line > QR code.

Step 3. Generate and Download the QR Code

The system will automatically create a QR code for the folder. You can now download it in a convenient and printable format as a PDF file.

This will allow you to print the QR code and use it as needed on your construction site.

Generate QR codes for multiple files

If you need to generate QR codes for multiple files or folders, simply select them by clicking on the checkboxes next to each item > QR code icon at the bottom of the page.

The system will then open a window where you can either download the QR codes individually (in separate PDFs) or click Download all QR codes and have them in a single PDF.

Step 4. Print and Use Your QR Codes

Now that you have downloaded your QR codes, you can easily print them and use them on your construction site. 

These can be attached to physical documents, equipment, or any other relevant items that require quick access to digital files.

Step 5. Update Your QR Codes as Needed

As your project progresses and new files are added to folders, you don't need to worry about your QR codes becoming outdated. They will automatically reflect the latest information within those folders. 

This ensures that everyone on your team has access to the most current documents and resources without the need for continuous manual updates.
