Can the barcode function pull up forms on Smartsheets?

We are looking to integrate the barcode functionality with our smartsheets database. If a user scans a barcode, can the relevant form be pulled up from Smartsheets for the user to fill out? 


  • Hello,

    The Smartsheet app won't pull of a form if you scan a barcode that contains the form link; however, in theory, you could use a third-part QR code scanner app to bring up the appropriate form.

    It works great to use a third-party scanner or even the one built into iPhone.

    I hope this helps you!

    Maybe this is old or irrelevant news, but here's what I just discovered:

    When I scan, from the Smartsheet app search page, a QR code that's associated with the link to a Smartsheet form, it gives me two options:

    1. Search Smartsheet - This returns no results.

    2. Visit Link - This opens the form in the app.

    When I scan the same QR code from my iPhone camera, it gives me one option:

    1. Open in Smartsheet - This opens the form in the app.
