Recover easily information from an NFC tag with Kizeo Forms.
NFC (Near Field Communication) is a wireless communication technology, like WiFi or Bluetooth. It allows the transfer of data between two devices, such as a mobile phone and NFC tag simply by touching. Typically, NFC is used to pass data from one device to the other.
The tool NFC tag allows you to tap a NFC tag to recover its content (the feature is not available on computer and iOS device and only on Android device).
You are an estate agent. You have to compile an inventory of fixtures for a property. Each door has a NFC tag that contains information of the apartment. You wish to add the tool NFC Tag to your form in order to easily inputting your “Inventory of Fixtures” forms.
You can not send data in the Contact, Address, Photo, Audio, and Drawing elements.
Tips: In order to facilitate the reading of your data (in case you write the information of several elements in your NFC Tag as we have just done), we advise you to link your NFC Tag to a Calculation element.
Note: The Modifiable entry option makes the field editable during user entry. By default, the Calculation field is not editable.
You can also get the ID of your tag. To do this, go to the options of your Advanced tab item and check the box Retrive only the ID of the tag.
On your mobile device.
Remember: The ItemRefNum makes data reading easier. It is similar to the Reference field. It reads information contained in a given column.
In our example, we entered the landlord contact details. This new data will be written to our NFC tag before saving as we configured it previously.
As usual, your data will be sent, on our servers and by email if the option is activated.
