Assign tag to asset

Knowledge Base > Indoor and Outdoor Tracking with Loop Cloud >  Loop Mobile > Assign Tag to Asset

This process allows you to create an association between a Tag and any item you wish to track. For example, when a Tag is associated with a vehicle, Loop Mobile and Loop Cloud will report the vehicle’s position based on the associated Tag.

From the main menu, tap Assign tag to asset to begin association. You will see a “Scan” screen with three options to choose from:

Scan to Add

The default option for assigning a Tag to an asset is Scan To Add. This works by first scanning the QR code on a Tag, then scanning the barcode of the asset you wish to associate with the Tag.

Note: You can scan either the Tag or the asset barcode first. If you scan the Asset first, then the application will recognize that and then ask you to scan a Tag. If your assets do not have a barcode, you can manually associate them with Tags using the instructions in the “Add Manually” section below.

scan the tag
  1. Tap Scan To Add (if not already selected).
  2. Scan the QR code on the top of the Tag.

Note: You may get a screen that says “Tag not detected” if the Tag is not turned on or not in range of the mobile device you are using. If this happens, please ensure the magnet has been removed from the Tag, then move your mobile device closer to the Tag and scan again.

After you scan the Tag, the Scan an Asset screen will launch.

  1. Scan the barcode code on Asset and it will automatically associate the Asset with the Tag.
