c. Scanning a Badge
Scanning a badge, the main action, is the first on the in the badge scanning section and will open the camera [make your you allow the App to access your camera]. The following steps will happen during the process of a badge scan:
- As soon as you now get either a QR Code or a Barcode in view the badge will start scanning.
- You'll recognize that the app has started scanning a code by a green box appears around the code you're scanning.
- Once the code is successfully scanned we'll add the person to your scans and you can tap on a person's name to open their profile.
- Our apps can scan multiple badges simultaneously and due to the intuitive design, you'll immediately see when the scans have been successful.
Important to note is that scans are also stored locally on your phone. This means that even if you scan someone when you don't have an internet connection it will be stored and uploaded to the platform once you do have an internet connection.
2. Where to see the list of people you scanned and who scanned you

The web platform can be found at https://matchmaking.grip.events/[event name] the event name of your event and under the section Teams.
b. Scanned by list

Can you scan a company or an item?
You can scan a QR code that belongs to an exhibitor or a product, for example, in case you want to get more information about them. In this case, you will "show an interest" in the company or item instead of forming a connection with them. You will be able to find the profiles of all the companies and items that you scanned in your "My 'Interested' List" or "My Scan List".
