Creating a Tag Code
Each NFC tag (or set of tags) connected to the ixkio platform has it's own unique Tag Code (XUID). The Tag Codes are included in a web link, such as, that is then encoded onto an NFC Tag. This allows you to edit, change the redirect and view stats in an easy to use platform.
Note that you can use the same Tag Code on multiple NFC tags but they will then all be controlled as a single batch.

How to create a Tag Code

Adding a tag to your account is very simple. Under the main menu, select 'Tags', then 'Add Tags'. This will take you to 'Tag Settings'.
  • Tag Name - Create a tag name e.g. Menu 1. Naming your tag will make it easier to identify them when viewing all tags. This name will also appear in your stats downloads.
  • Target URL - When adding your URL, make sure to include https:// or http://. This will be the URL your tags will redirect to and can be changed at any time.
  • Tag Code Quantity - You can create multiple Tag Codes at the same time with the same starting URL. Simply change the quantity to however many Tag Codes you want to add. The Lite plan has a limit of 100 Tag Codes. Then click 'Create new tag'.

What is a Tag Code / XUID ?

A Tag Code or 'XUID' is a unique 8 or 16 character code which defines that tag within ixkio platform. You can encode multiple NFC tags using the the same Tag Code. It doesn't limit the number of tags in total, just the number of changeable links.
e.g. One Tag Code can be encoded onto 100 tags, meaning 100 NFC tags would redirect to this one URL. 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. The ixkio Lite subscription allows the creation of up to 100 Tag Codes. If you need more, you will need to upgrade to a Flex account.
If you encode multiple tags with the same tag code link, then changing the link on ixkio will change all the links on tags encoded with that Tag Code link.
