FAQ: Edit Tag

The Dynotag System consists of ID Tags attached to Information Records (records, for short). When a third party person view the ID tag, they are shown the contents of the attached record.

About Your Tags

When you obtain a new tag, you first to “Activate” it into your account, and either create a new information record for it – or – attach it to an existing information record.

  • Multiple ID tags can be attached to an information record.
  • An ID tag can be attached to only one information record.

For example, you can get a Medical ID pendant and activate it, creating a Medical ID information record in the process. Later on, you can get a Medical ID Wristband and during its activation you attach it to your existing Medical ID information record.

In the Dynotag system. Information Records are the actual data repositories you create and maintain. Tags are the physical products you acquire – and associate with a record.

Note that INFORMATION RECORDS CAN ONLY BE VIEWED VIA A TAG THAT IS ATTACHED TO THEM. This is especially important for password protected information because in most cases, the viewer will have to enter the KeyCode on the specific tag in order to view the information.

Editing Your Tags

Once you activate your tag via the “Activate a New Tag” action, it exclusively belongs to your account and you (and only you) can manage it.

On your “My Records” page, under each record, you will see the tag(s) attached to that record. You can click on any of these Tag IDs to view that tag’s “Dashboard”, where you can manage your tag.

For most consumers, working on this page is not necessary. The “Activation Sequence” guides the creation of a “default” record type for every consumer product and attaches the tag to that record.

It is necessary to use the Tag Dashboard page when:

  • Activating a new tag with the intent of attaching it to an existing record
    Example: You have a Medical ID Record with a Medical Pendant attached to it. Now you want to attach your new Medical Wristband Tag to the same Medical ID Record – so the information is shared.
  • Changing the “Record” a tag is attached to
    One can either attach the tag to another compatible record – or – create a NEW compatible record and attach to it. Unattached tags that are not associated with a record are always shown on top of the “My Records” screen.
  • You want to obtain the QR code for your tag, attach an alias to it – or see details
    These operations are tag specific and are accessible on this page only…

The Tag Dashboard

The “Tag Dashboard” consists of two sections:

1 – The “Data Panel”
2 – The “Function Panel”

The “Data Panel”

The Data Panel of the tag shows information that can be associated with the tag. These are the “Tag Title” and the “Record Attachment Status”

Title” – A description you can enter for your ID tag

We suggest a physical description of the tag itself or the object it is attached to. Example: “Blue Wristband Medical ID” or “Samsonite hard side luggage, black”

Status” – The current record attachment status for this tag

Displays which Information Record this tag is currently attached to…

Record Type“- the currently selected record template for this tag

Each ID Tag has a list of Information Record types it can support (get attached to)

Of those, the most common record type for the tag is the initial record type. For instance, a Medical ID tag would have the “Medical” record type as the default.

Record” – the Information Record attachment widget

This widget lets you perform one of the following actions by clicking the appropriate radio button. These are:

  • Leave the record assignment of this tag as is.
    This selection makes no changes and leaves the tag’s record attachment as is.
  • Detach
    This selection will detach the tag from its attached record. The Tag will be “Parked” so you can attach it to another record later.
  • Create a new record and attach this tag to it.
  • Does exactly what it describes. The tag would be detached from its existing record. a new record would be created – and the tag would be attached to that instead.
  • —–
    Alternatively – you attach this tag to one of your qualifying records already in your collection. Example: You already have a Medical ID record attached to a Wallet Med ID tag. You just activated a Pendant Med ID tag and want to attach it to the same record.
    If you have existing records that this tag may be attached to, you would be shown that list of qualifying records. Simply click the radio button of one of these – and the tag will be attached to that record instead of its current attachment.
