Generate QR codes for Pins effortlessly by incorporating specific placeholders in report templates. These QR codes enable other users to directly access a Pin. You can also print these QR codes on labels and place them directly on the corresponding item. This allows you to quickly access the corresponding pin, e.g. for recurring maintenance work, without having to search for it on a plan.
