How to add WiFi

Adding WiFi spots is nearly the same as adding beacons but without the importing.
  • Go to Beacons.
  • Click Add Spot.
  • Enter a Name for your WiFi spot. (i.e. WiFi1, Broadway store, whatever you decide so you know which WiFi you are using on which campaign, location, etc.
  • Choose WiFi as a Spot Type.
  • Enter WiFi Name (SSID) - this is the name of the WiFi network that is going to be the trigger for your proximity campaigns.
  • Enter WiFi MAC Address (BSSID) - you can find your mac address by using a Wifi Analyzer mobile app on your phone. Mac address looks something like this c4:27:95:c0:32:11

Campaigns that are triggered by WiFi spots work on both iOS and Android. The only difference between two systems is that on Android all you need to do is turn on WiFi on your device, whereas on iOS you need to be logged in to a designated WiFi network.

How to Add QR Codes

QR codes are just another type of spot. QR codes have the same ability to initialize a proximity campaign on a user's mobile phone. You can assign any type of campaign to a QR code, just as you would assign it to a beacon. The only difference between QRodes and other spots is that user needs to manually scan the printed QR code with a phone's camera to initialize the campaign on the phone. QR codes are great if you want to grant somebody a coupon, point or stamp for the purchase made - they guarantee that you as a seller you have control over who receives it and who doesn't.

  • Pick a name for your QR code spot.
  • Choose QR code as a Spot Type.
  • In Code type in a unique combination of letters, digits and special characters. You can also click on Generate button next to it to populate a generic code automatically.
  • Preview shows you how this QR code looks like. You can print it now.

Once you add a campaign, you can now choose the created QR code as a trigger. To scan the QR code you or your customer need to access QR code scanner through the sidebar of the appSAVE® app:

Universal URL Links

Universal links enable you to send a link to your customers, so after they click on it, it will show them a particular campaign you created:

  • Scenario 1: Users have the appSAVE® app installed - after clicking on the link the mobile app will open automatically showing the particular campaign. It works for both iOS and Android platforms. This concept is called Mobile Deep Linking
  • Scenario 2: Users don't have the appSAVE® app installed - Universal links also work for customers who do not have the app installed. In this case, after they click on a link, they will be offered to install the appSAVE® app application from the Appstore or Google Play.
  • Scenario 3: Users open the link on PC or Mac - if your customer opens a universal link on a desktop, it will show the campaign in the device's native internet browser.
