Q: How do I install it?

Open up the M-Files Administrator Console, select a vault that you’d like to add this feature to and right-click it to open up the “Applications” menu. There just hit the “Install…” button to select and install the app for M-Files Desktop and/or Web. M-Files Desktop users will now have to logoff and logon again. If install was successful, users will have the new “Get QR-Mobilelink…” command in the context menu of selected M-Files objects and views.

Q: How do I use it?

Just select the desired object in M-Files Desktop or Web Client, right click it and choose the “Get QR-Mobilelink…” function from the context menu. That will automatically generate the QR-Code to bring that content onto your mobile device, whether it is a tablet or a smartphone. Of course, M-Files mobile app needs to be installed beforehand, but it is not necessary to have it open while scanning the code – any capable QR-Code reading app will do. It is especially easy with iOS, which standard camera app now has an integrated QR-interpreter. Please note that the QR-Code is printable if you prefer to have a physical copy of the M-Files object somewhere in reach, reusable at your fingertips.

Q: How do I uninstall it?

Open up the M-Files Administrator Console, select the vault that currently has the app installation and right-click it to open up the “Applications” menu. Now select the app and hit the “Uninstall” button. That’s it.
