SharePoint 2016 introduces a new feature to open links on your phone or tablet using QR codes. Here is how this feature works:
- Go to any of your SharePoint 2016 library such as the document library. From the document’s context menu, click on the tiny phone icon.
- This takes you to a page with a QR code generated for the document URL. By default, every document is assigned with a unique QR code.
- From your phone, use QR reader app to read the QR code and navigate to the document URL. This makes it easier to share documents on mobile devices.
