I'm totally new to Dynamics 365 Guides and I'm currently making work instruction guides for the technical staff in a company.
my question is about anchoring a guide with a QR code:
Everytime that I create a new guide, dynamics 365 Guides generates the same QR code so do I have to provide my own QR code each time or there is some settings to do in order to make a new one?
Thank you in advance.
The default QR Code (with the small anchor) is indeed static but provides the best placement/anchoring solution.
If you want to direct your user to a specific Guide or Step, you can copy the Guide/Step link by doing right-click on a guide or step.
You can then generate a QRCode for this link using any generator like : www.qr-code-generator.com/
There are some info here:
But mainly, you will have to follow those rules to get a nice readable QRCode:
- size (at least 10cm/4inches) and orientation of the printed QRCode
- avoid glossyness on the printed QRCode
Hope this helps
Hi IRBAH, the QR code downloaded from the anchor page is static. In the PC app, you can click Download QR code to copy a PDF file to your PC. The PDF has useful tips along with the printable QR code on the last page.

Per Vincent you can also create your own QR codes that open a specific guide. You can use these as an anchor too, which allows the operator to more quickly open the guide and get started.

Welcome to Guides and Mixed Reality :-) I hope your deployment is successful and please continue to post questions and feedback on the forum.
Thanks @Vincent and @Dave for your answers.
With that been said, do I have to create new QR code using the link for all my guides (I'll create more than 40 guide) or I can just use the static one for all my guides? which one is better.
Just to further clarify, you can use the same QR code for different guides.
You only need distinct QR codes per guide if you are embedding a link to the guide in the QR code (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/mixed-reality/guides/pc-app-anchor-embed-qr-code-link)
