Allows you to read and/or write data from and to an NFC Tag.
You have a list of pre-defined variables that this action will create. These are visible in the configuration screen.
Check out this video example to see this in action.
Payload To Write
Optionally allows you to write data to the tag. If you leave this empty, data will just be read. Select different Payload Types and then use the magnifying glass to help selecting a payload for the selected type.
Optinally set a type for the payload. If none is set, the Text type will be automatically used.
Different Payload Types will have different behaviours when the tag is later scanned:
- Text: The system will not react to this. You'll have to implement your own behaviour by using the NFC Tag Event.
- Application: The system will automatically open the selected app, even on a device that doesn't have Tasker installed.
- Uri: The system will automatically open the selected Uri (like a web URL for example), even on a device that doesn't have Tasker installed.
