You probably know by now what tags and attachments are used for (and if that's not the case, check out this article!). Now, let's quickly go through the ways you can associate both with Estimote beacons.
First of all, log in to the Estimote Cloud and find the beacon you want to configure (they're not in there? We've got you covered). Then either:
- click on the "Settings" button to the right to edit a single beacon or
- check the boxes to the left of the beacons to select multiple ones. Then, click on "Edit" in the menu above.
Once you've opened the beacon settings, you'll see the "Tags" field to the right. Click on it and a list of already added tags will show up, along with a button for adding new ones. Select either option and save the settings.
Note that, unlike with the other beacon settings, you don't need to connect to the beacons to apply those tags as they are fetched from the Estimote Cloud the moment a beacon is encountered.
Attachments can be added in the "Beacon Attachment" menu. Simply insert a "key" and its "value" and save changes. There's no limit in terms of the number of attachments a beacon can have.
Similarly to tags, attachments also don't need to be synchronized with beacons like other beacon settings. This allows you to edit the attachments remotely, even if you have already deployed the beacons thousands of miles away. Check the documentation mentioned in the Cloud for more details.
