You just need to input the content or link you want to convert to QR Code in the cells in Column A, below the heading Content. There is sample content added in the sheet, a link and a word, with their corresponding QR codes. Feel free to delete them and add your own. 

For our example, we want to generate QR codes for the Lido.app website and the corresponding signup page.
