Adding an NFC Tag to a Tour Via the Logbook

In this article, we will go over the 2 step process of how to add an NFC Tag to a tour via the logbook.

NOTE: Whether adding a new checkpoint to a tour or replacing an existing one with a new tag, you must follow this two-step process to correctly add a tag to a current Tour.

Scan the New Tag While Performing the Tour you Want to Add it to

You will need to have placed the new NFC tag in its destined physical location and start the tour from the m-Post app to which you want to add this tag.

Once you start the Tour, scan the new Tag with your device. You should get an Unknown tag with a timestamp and confirmation tone.

Optional: Use the text button ( 2023-gt-us-img (1360).png ) to leave yourself a note that will help you identify this Tag's Serial Number in the Logbook report later. Once you save the text, a pencil icon will appear on the Unknown tag to confirm the note was saved.

Once you have scanned all the new Tags for this Tour, then End Tour.


Go to Your Logbook on GuardTek and Save the Tag to the Tour

Now login to your GuardTek account and go to the Logbook for the Site you are working on. Find the End of Tour report entry from your device and click to open the report.

In the report, your Unknown Tag appears in the list of tags scanned during this tour. A green edit pencil (2023-gt-us-img (1356).png) will be on the right of this entry. Clicking the edit pencil will reload this report with options to update the Tag Name, Comments/Instructions, and Position before saving this tag to the tour.

Once you have updated the Tag Name, click the save icon (2023-gt-us-img (1355).png ) in the lower right. The report will reload again, giving the option to edit the next Tag, if any. Now you can synchronize your devices to have the updated version of this Tour with the new Tag information.

NOTE: If this was to replace a missing/damaged Tag, don't forget to remove the old tag from the tour by going to your Settings > Tours on GuardTek and deleting the old Tag.
