Dynotag system offers several purpose-built “Record Templates”, also called “Information Record Types” .
Depending on the physical tag you receive, one of these templates will be initially assigned to the tag – so you can get going quickly.
When you activate a new tag, you will be asked if you want to create a record with the default record type assigned to that tag. If you accept, a new record of that type will be created and the currently activated tag will be linked to it.
Once an information record of a certain type is created, other ID tags of the same type can link to it as well. This serves to increase redundancy – the information in the record can be accessed via any of the linked tags.
For example, pet tags have the default record type of “Pet” assigned – so, upon activation, they will offer to create a new Pet information record and link to it. Alternatively, if you want to set up a second Pet Tag for your pup “Fido”, who already has a Pet tag named “Fido’s Smart Pet ID” – you can choose NOT to create a new Pet ID record – and link the newly activated pet tag to Fido’s existing Pet ID record…
Once a tag is linked to an information record, it is committed to that record – until it is manually unlinked from that information record, using the “Tag Dashboard”.
Unlinked tags stay in the account, but are displayed in the “Unlinked Tags” section on top of the “My Records” screen. Clicking on on one of these, you can either create a new information record of the tag’s current type, or link the tag to one of the existing records of the currently selected type.
When working on a tag that is currently not linked to an information record, you can change the tag’s Record Type by expanding the “Advanced section, under the tag “Title”:
… click the “Record Type” selector to pick any of the supported record types this tag can be linked to:
Once you select the “Record Type”, you can then decide to either create a new record of that type and link the tag to it, or, you can link the tag to any record you already have of the given type.
For example, if you already have two Pet records for “Fido” and “Ajax”, you can simply link the current pet tag to one of these two records.
Note that not all tags can connect to all record types. For example, Medical ID records can only be connected to by Medical ID tags that are purpose designed for Emergency ID applications.
Every “Record Type” has its own specific “Data Panel” containing information sections relevant for that type.
Available record types are:
Item ID record For your luggage, laptop or anything you can attach a dynotag to, even your fish tank!
Need help finding your belongings? Add a note to your cell phone or laptop tag, even after you’ve lost the item it’s attached to. Note that Lost&Found offices, first responders, security and transportation service staff are required by law to give their best effort to contact you using the information in the tag. A dynotag on your property provides them with that key information.

File Record: For directly sharing documents, pictures or just about any file!
File records are loaded and can directly serve a SINGLE file – directly when NOT password protected. This means any view of the tag is shown the contents of the file – immediately!
If password protection is used, then there is an intermediate password query and the serving of the content is not immediate.
If you need to store multiple files or notes in a record, use the “Notepad” file type.
