Create a QR Code Using a URL Shortener

Christy Cook Updated by Christy Cook

In order to be able to track the number of scans from a QR Code, you will want to create the QR Code from a URL Shortener. So, you must create the URL Shortener first.

To create a URL Shortener, navigate to Inbound > URL Shorteners. From here you can either enter a URL and press return or click  + Create in the main URL Shortener menu.

Next, you will be asked to assign the URL Shortener to a campaign. Now, enter the Desitnation URL.

DailyStory will attempt to automatically set the "Friendly Name" of your URL Shortener to the title of the page you are linking to, but some pages don't have titles so you may need to name it yourself.

Once you click Create the editor will generate the URL Shortener and a QR Code. The URL Shortener is what you publish or share. When people click your URL Shortener or scan your QR Code, they will be redirected to the Destination URL.

Click Save Changes. Once your URL Shortener is saved, the URL Shortener editor will switch from create to edit mode. In edit mode there are more options for how DailyStory manages your URL Shortener.
