Ticket #260846 Public

When using scanner gun it reads a whole url instead of only the ticketnumbers

Im allready able to properly check in guest by typing the ticketnumber in the check in field.
But when i use a scanner gun, the check in field will be filled with a url instead of just the ticketnumber.
and the url also makes no sense to me. it contains “%” for instance.
the QR Code scanning mode is switched to “QR Code scanner gun”.

my only idea is, that it hast to do with the several QR Code types and maybe keybord layouts. I did change the settings of the scanner gun but it didnt workout.

so ist there something i missed where i can force to only scan the ticketnumber. Or what is the whole content of the tickets qr code?
(i did use the unencrypted ticketnumbers)

thanks for your help!

      I use this barcode scanner: https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B09B1WH7WQ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

      so can u say something about the type of the QR-code which is used at the QR Add on for MyEventon? Or Anything else to this problem which i described above?


      Thank You!

      thanks for assigning to Ashan. Would be great to hear his thoughts to this topic.
      In 2 days i have the first situation to realise the check-in situation with the qr-code tickets and the scanner gun… 🙂

      Problem could be solved due to 2 actions:

      1. changing the keyboard settings of the scanner gun into local language (in this case german).

      2. adding “carriage return” to the scanner so that the scanner, which works like a keyboard, always enters after reading the ticketnumber.
