QR codes today are found on numerous sites, pages and elements to access more complete information about it, open a website, register and many more tasks. Basically, a QR code is a two-dimensional barcode where the encoded data of the target object is stored in a complete and comprehensive way..

 

The use of QR codes is specially designed for mobile devices since with the use of some applications we can scan a QR code with the mobile to immediately access the content of this QR code. Something that many of us did not know is that it is possible to create our QR code in Word , Excel or PowerPoint and we achieve this thanks to an add-in called QR4Office. QR4Office has been developed as a QR generator which is integrated into Office documents allowing you to create QR codes easily.

 

QR Features
Some of its most outstanding features are:
  • Ability to set the level of QR error correction.
  • The QR code images will be embedded in the document.
  • Options such as color, background, and size can be adjusted based on current needs.

 

 

Let's see how to install this add-in in Office and then create our QR code.
Note: installing RQR4Office in one of the programs will make it available to the other applications of the Office suite..

Step 7

We can establish a background or general context color, the common thing is to have the default colors (black and white), in the “Error correction” part we can define the size that the QR code will have internally to be captured by the reader and this will be visible in the preview:
