Create dynamic QR codes
I understand that the current QR codes generated include only a fixed information. So if I update my information on ORCID, I need to produce a new QR code. This kind of static QR codes can easily be generated on many websites.
It would be nicer to have a QR code that gets updated when my profile is updated. This would give me the possibility to update my contact information, or fix errors in the information without having the change the code everywhere it was used.
It would be a nice added value to ORCID compared to other websites.
The QR codes shouldn’t be sending fixed information, but instead should provide a link to your current, public ORCID record with the most up to date information. If you’re not seeing this when you test it, send us the QR code you generated that links to old information at email@example.com and we can look into what is going wrong.

Since we haven't heard from you in a while, we assume the issue is now solved.
QR codes should provide a link to your current ORCID record. If you are having issues with your QR code, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
