Step 1: Understanding What Nfc Is.
Step 2: The Things You Will Need
Step 3: Setting Up Your Device.
go to settings by pulling down the top menu. press the gear icon.
scroll down to nfc and payment. if you don't see it press the magnifying glass icon to search for nfc.
turn it on
Step 4: Get the Apps
then search for tasker nfc plug in. scroll down to the one in the picture.
the search for nfc tag writer. choose which ever you want. as for what is needed to do this is just an independent id for the nfc Tag for tasker to recognize it.
Step 5: Set Up the Nfc Tag
open the app and choose the write menu
choose the business card option and fill out the information you want.
there are options for read and write protection but if you want to use this tag later for a different project don't check any of the boxes.
press the write button. and touch the tag to the back of your phone until it says write success.
If the program says there is not enough space you can go back to the phone number option instead.
now your tag has a id code.
Step 6: Setting Up Tasker to Insert Calender Events When Nfc Is Tapped
in the next menu choose plug in.
choose the nfc starter.
click the pencil on configuration and tap the ncf tag to the phone until it is read. you will see a code near the top of the screen.
go back and a box will pop up to make a new task and name it. when that's done a bunch of options will pop up at the bottom it says filter. enter calendar insert.
from there enter the information from the picture to find which calendar to choose hit the magnifying glass icon it will give you a list of calendars. choose one.
you can change what is entered into your calendar. (at this point you can follow all the previous steps to set of tags to log other activities like snacking, running or other exercises. you can use this with kids to track chores with a shared Gmail calendar.)
when finished go back by pressing the < by the tasker icon on the top of the screen. hit the play icon and if a green dot shows up you did it right. now check your calendar and you should see the entry.
Step 7: Test and Enjoy
BTW tasker needs to be active for this to work. it doesn't take up much power.
I hope you enjoy this project. feel free to ask me questions if you run into problems. also if you are more experienced with tasker and can give some tips, that would be great.
