Using NFC tags to identify {{{NFC_item1}}}s and {{{NFC_item2}}}s

The {{{appName}}} app is designed to use NFC tags to correctly log work undertaken for each {{{NFC_item1}}} and per {{{NFC_item2}}}.

This function requires that, prior to using the app, ginstr web is first used to populate the {{{nfc_item1}}} and {{{NFC_item2}}}s tables with individual records containing the unique NFC tag ID and the corresponding name or description for each of the {{{nfc_item1}}} or {{{NFC_item2}}}s.

NFC Reader

Using NFC Readers with ginstr web

NFC card readers can be used to create records for this app on ginstr web.

The NFC reader can be plugged into the user's PC and will initially take a few minutes to set up.

The GoToTags Windows App needs to be installed for the reader to work with the ginstr web backend.

The NFC reader will read the ID of any NFC device that is placed on top of it.

NFC devices

NFC tags, cards, keyrings and other devices can be used to create records with ginstr web.

Each NFC device has a unique ID, which will be shown in the records as a sequence of numbers and letters.

This ID will correspond with the information entered by the user, making the NFC tag an ideal form of ID for both {{{NFC_item1}}}s and {{{NFC_item2}}}s.

Creating {{{NFC_item1}}} Records

When the NFC reader has been set up and GoToTags has been installed, the NFC tag belonging to each of the {{{NFC_item1}}} can be scanned.

The NFC tag UID, text, or data can be automatically pasted from the tag to the {{{NFC_item_ID}}} data field of the record being created by selecting the "auto paste" option from the "Integrations" tab at the top of the window.

After this, ginstr web must be opened to the {{{nfc_item1}}} table belonging to the {{{appName}}} app.

{{{NFC_item1}}} records can be created using the
add record
button near the top of the portlet on ginstr web, double clicking the {{{NFC_item_ID}}} field, and scanning the relevant NFC tag.

The information from the scanned tag will appear in the {{{NFC_item_ID}}} field, but other data about each record must be entered in the table manually.


Creating {{{NFC_item2}}} Records

As described above, {{{NFC_item2}}} records can be created using ginstr web by using the
add record
button near the top of the ginstr web portlet on the {{{NFC_item2}}}s table , double clicking the {{{NFC_item_ID}}} field, and scanning the {{{NFC_item2}}}'s NFC tag.

The information from the scanned tag will appear in the {{{NFC_item_ID}}} field, but other data about the {{{NFC_item2}}} must be entered in the table manually.
