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,

Reading NFC tags is now available in Power Apps. You can learn more in our announce blog and our documentation

Advocate I

I second this idea - would open up the use of powerapps for our organisation!

Advocate IV

Agreed, great idea.

We definetely need this feature to be available in PowerApps.

This would help us a lot, baility to read from NFC should become a standard.

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.

Would like to write to NFC tag too

This is a "must-have" and something that would ensure that powerapps is ready and fit for the future.


Please prioritize. NFC reading(and writing) is widely standardized and ready on all mayor mobile OS's

This would hopefully eliminate challenges where light is not good or the camera is not good when scanning barcodes - NFC would be much more reliable


Just got this requirement from a major customer (>100 000 employee) , this is definitly a must have

@FilipK Usage of USB NFC scanners seems to be quite strange with smartphones.

This option is really needed for developing of applications where it is needed to identify some-thing and where bar-codes are not effective by different reasons.
