A tag is a group of commands. A command responds to a single type of movement. On the 'TAGS' tab you can select one or more tags and then apply one of the following functions to the selected tags:
Make them active or inactive
Delete the selected tags
Copy the selected tags in preparation for editing them
Export the selected tags to a file to save or share them
You can also create a new tag from scratch.
Each entry represents a collection of one or more commands. A command is triggered by a movement and starts an app or a built-in function.
All the commands that FlickStart can see are accessed through the 'TAGS' tab
Usually all the commands in a tag respond to movements from a single device (eg. the commands are designed to be activated by a movement of the wearable).
Apart from the 'Create a Tag' button, all the buttons operate just on the tags which have been selected through the checkboxs which appear on the left of the list.
The top checbox (in the list header area) allows you to turn or off all the boxs with a single tap.
The 'Create a Tag' button is used to build a tag from scratch and not need the checkboxs at all.
The button changes the active state of the tags that are currently checked.
If the set of tags selected by the checkboxs has a mixture of active and inactive tags, then the button makes all the selected tags inactive.
If the set of tags selected by the checkboxs are all inactive then all the checked tags will be made active.
If the set of tags selected by the checkboxs are all active then all the checked tags will be made inactive.
An active tag has a greenish background.
The first step will be to choose a name for the tag. If you look at the tags that came with the app you will see that they generally provide information about the overall theme of the commands in the tag (ie. the commands all operate on the music player) and which device will be used to trigger the commands (handheld or wearable).
The next step will be to create one or more commands that will belong to the tag. A button in the tag editing panel leads to a further panel for creating commands.
Once all the commands are created, you can decide whether to make the tag active immediately, and then save the tag.
When you tap the delete button any tags (and their associated commands) that are checked will be deleted.
There is a confirmation panel which will list the tags about to be deleted.
There is no undo function.
A greenish background on a row indicates that the tag in question is active. Tags without a greenish background are inactive.
Only the commands in active tags are candidates for triggering when they match a movement you make with the handheld or wearable.
You can change tags from active to inactive and vice versa by tapping on th checkbox next to the tag and tapping on the 'Flip...' button.
If you want to modify a tag or create a new tag which is very similar to an existing tag (eg. you want the same commands but have them work by movement of the wearable rather than the handheld), starting with copy of the tag is a safe way of avoiding destroying existing working tags.
It's used to take a tag or set of tags and create a file containing all the information in the tags (the names, all the commands, and all the parameters set for the commands).
Such a file can be used for archiving tags, or for sending them to another FlickStart user's phone where the file can be imported.
When a previously exported set of tags is imported somewhere else the FlickStart that imported file will list and operate on the tags and commands in exactly the same way as it did on the original phone.
If the commands being exported contain reference to files (eg. sound files) that are in the FlickStart folder (or a sub-folder), then the exported file will contain coies of those files so that the commands will still owrk on the importing phone.
