NFC tag Scanning

PowerApps Team,

 

It would be extremely beneficial if you could insert an NFC Scanner as a media (similar use of Barcode scanner).

NFC tags are now being used for huge IoT projects that's why scanning NFC tags' UID and/or memory would be very useful!

 

Thank you,

 

Alicia

I stumbled across this quite by accident. I can't find any documentation for this and can't understand why Microsoft would neglect to mention something with so much potential.

 

The ReadNFC() function returns the following:

 

  • .Text
  • .RTD
  • .TNF
  • .URI

I was able to use them by calling the function with the On Select of a button setting a variable

Set(varNFCtag, ReadNFC().)

What I really wish I could get is the tag ID, preferably in hex.

I am still expecting the ReadNFC() function can return the unique identifier of the CARD,  I am using MiFare Classic Card, and ReadNFC(), doesn't return that info.

Returning the identifier as well as all records available is rolling out now. It will be available 2207.2, which should be in all regions around July 25th.
