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,




Status: Under Review

This is a great idea, and something that we'll definitely need to support some time down the road.


In the meanwhile, you can always connect a USB NFC scanner to your device.  It will connect as a USB keyboard.  This allows you to put focus in a Text input field, and upon a successful scan, the field will be populated with data from the scan.

It would be great to have these read and write of NFC tag in Power Apps. Can't wait to have these features in Power Apps SOON!!!!

Our company has warehouses with over 90.000 tools equipped with RFID-tags so we can't wait to have the NFC feature in PowerApps.

We really appreciate for considering this idea. 


I am wondering if there is any update on when the NFC Tag scanning might be available 🙂

Power Apps

We are evaluating how best to achieve this, but don't have any concrete plans yet.

What's the status of this?  It's been under review for two years...

If I can't get this feature in Power Apps I'll have to hire an android app developer.

NFC reading is perfect for 'proof of presence' apps.  In the past pictures of bar codes and QR codes on an employee's personal phone have been scanned, circumventing the proof of presence.
