FAQ: What is “Block Activation”?

“Block Activation” is a feature that is offered when multiple unique tags of the same kind need to be activated in a single step.

Particularly in “Asset tracking and management” applications, there is a need to use dozens, hundreds or more tags for individual objects.  If one were to activate all these unique tags individually, that would be a time consuming event. Dynotag “Block Activated” tags effectively enable a user to activate three or more tags in a single activation step, adding them to the user’s collection, ready to get linked to their information records. 

Current offerings from Dynotag use block activation in strips of three (all 3 unique tags are activated at once) or pages of 36 (all 36 tags are activated at once). The activation process can be initiated either by scanning a QR code on one of the stickers on the set – or visiting dynotag.com/activate.

In the example below, we have three block activated stickers with their unique corresponding dynotag smart IDs. They are unique tag – so each can have their own private record – or several of them can be linked to the same record, depending on application needs…

All block activated products in a block share the same activation code, and activating any of the dynotags activates all of the dynotags in the block and enters them in the user’s dynotag collection, ready for linking to a specific record for each sticker as they are applied to assets…

After activation, each dynotag acts as an individual tag – meaning that one can “Reset” a tag in a block activation – and this action will NOT reset the entire batch of tags. The specific tag that is reset can be reactivated with the same block activation code – as an individual tag, into its previous owner or another user’s account…
