You can now scan the QR code or Barcodes that was generated outside of zkipster and use to check-in your guests via the zkipster app. Please note that it will automatically pull up the guest profile tied to the code value that has been uploaded.

Please Note: Please also make sure to create a Custom Field in zkipster and name it as 'Code Value' via the matching screen or via the 'Guest Fields' tab.
