Creating a Tag Code

What is a Tag Code ?

Each NFC tag you want to add to the ixkio platform will have it's own unique Tag Code (XUID), such as 12345a6x.

The Tag Codes are included in the ixkio web link, like, which can then be encoded onto an NFC Tag.

Once encoded, you can control the URL destination of the NFC tag via the ixkio console and change this destination whenever you want.

You can use the same Tag Code on multiple NFC tags but they will then all be controlled together.

How to create a Tag Code

Under the Side Menu, select Tags, then Add Tag. This will take you to the Add New Tag screen. Enter the following information :

Tag Name (Optional) Add a name for your tag that will be used internally within the ixkio console, mobile app and within stats downloads

Target URL (Optional) Enter the initial destination URL for your tag including the https or http. You can change this later. If you leave this blank, then the Tag Code will use the Tag Default URL. You can still add a specific URL for this tag later if you start by using the Tag Default URL.

Tag Code Quantity The number of Tag Codes that you want to create. This will create your required number of unique Tag Codes which can each be encoded onto your NFC tags. Remember, you can always use the same Tag Code on multiple tags but they will all be managed together.

Then click 'Create New Tag' to create your new Tag Codes.

What is the XUID ?

The 'XUID' is a unique 8 or 16 character code which defines that tag within the whole ixkio system.

You can search for your tag using the XUID code. The XUID code will also show in the downloaded stats making it easier to find.
