Your Forms Can Now Scan And Fill In Data: Introducing Business Card Scanning For iOS Mobile Devices

Hello everyone,

Getting someone's information in your forms used to require them to input data manually in each field. Not anymore: Introducing business card scanning in Zoho Forms for iOS mobile devices. 
 
Users can now fill in forms by just scanning their business cards. Data on the card gets auto-populated in the appropriate fields:
  • Name
  • Address
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • Website

For example, suppose you need your submitter's data for a conference registration form. With a quick scan, the form would include their name, address, email address and contact number. In addition to scanning, you can also edit the data entered in the fields.


Business card scanning in iOS 

Luckily, there are no steps involved to enable this feature for your forms. Yay!

Every form you create in iOS will have the business card scanning feature by default. One can access this feature by clicking the scan icon on the top right corner of the form.

Start scanning today, and let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Thanks!
