NFC tagg system changes
Add NFC options to change many settings at once when you tap nfc tags. E.x. At office nfc tag (data off, wi-fi on, volume 5, brightness high...), at bedroom tag (data off,wi-fi on, vibration, brightness low,...)..
Bitte unbedingt daran arbeiten
thats what we need !! really good. I just admit ..
Gute Idee, bitte realisieren.
Danke im voraus.
Give the control to the user. Add a setting to allow "unsecure" nfc ans warn!
Pedro del Lobo commented
Please allow NFC tags to
a. execute several commands
b. change system settings like wifi/bluetooth on off
launch apps/music player
Implement trusted NFCs e.g. trust the ones you have writtem with your own phone and allow seamless execution of tag commands without a pop up and tap. A sound notification should be enough to know that the NFC was detected and executed.
p.s. Oh yes and I want it now :))

I understand the security risk behind NFC, however I think in its current state it is haemorrhaged. I don't believe in doing it the Android way (tap any random NFC tag, it can do whatever it wants without confirmation) but at the same time some restrictions needs to be lifted. Allow task lists etc to be created, so it can do everything Android can do (also, please swap to the Android NFC transfer standard to allow interoperability), but it does still trigger a warning highlighting what the NFC tag wants to do. Unless of course the user manually trusts the NFC tag. If businesses are concerned then allow enterprise restrictions on the trusting of tags (so it can be set that no NFC tags can be trusted) and NFC (if they are really worried about NFC, they can set the phone so the NFC option is greyed out)
If the NFC tag wants to do too much to show in a raw notification (users: this is the grey box that comes up at the top of the phone), give a "Details" option for the NFC tag that shows all the details on a system page, and allows you to allow or deny the tag from there.
Must have is that multiple actions happen when i enter the car and tap the NFCtag Bluetooth, navigation, gps turns on.
Features i would like for NFC
- trust/remember tags (don't have to allow connection anymore)
- On/Off function (first tap on 2nd tap off)

A way to trust tags to avoid further user interaction would indeed be a great addition - perhaps implemented as a list of trusted tags on the phone, or a list of trusted NFC-writers (signed through private/public key encryption).
Very important feauture.I need this so much, without funktions like wifi on/off; nfc on wp8 is useless
Yes i very important feauture , an example can be see NFC Task Launcher that can create a workflow to do when tag is read . an other problem is that Windows phone read only only first message in the tag so in this moment is not possible do a workflow action.
why is Microsoft never hearing what the Community needs? We give you all these really great feedback, but nothing happens? This is really bad. As all the others have stated already, NFC is useless at the moment, unfortunately.
For one single action or multi-actions, I hope I can realize it/them in one single tough , once finger ,one time.
Bought a bunch of tags to play with, to discover they're absolutely USELESS. I tried to have a tag to start Internet sharing, or a tag near my bed to put the phone in Airplane mode and set an alarm at 06.00 am ... To discover you need to resume the phone from standby mode and that the NFC TAG can't change the system settings, need manual input. Migrating to Android because of this!

Why would you release a product with a useless implementation of a feature, yet advertise that your product can do it? I can ride a bike, but I don't advertise myself as a Tour de France contender. I bought these tags in good faith and was so let down to find out how little I can do with them, after so much hype.
The NFC is useless for me on the HTC WP 8x
100% my next phone will be an android
if no Change in the next one year
Seriously, I can't believe this implementation. I bought all these NFC tags, with visions of being able to put my phone on silent at the office, turn the ringer back on at home, and let anyone connect to my wifi all with a single tap. The way WP8 has implemented it, you can't do anything but share a contact or open a url.
At least I'll be getting a Galaxy S4 soon, and with it an NFC implementation that doesn't completely miss the point.
Eder Morales commented
I find it really dissapointing that WP8 does not support this. NFC is almost useless without it. I just got a handful of tags, but im about to sell them to a friend that has an Android phone.
An alternative solution would be to set a "Trust" order for a certain tag (while tagging it), so that it can acess any setting we want.
Please, please, please, do something about this.

In its current form NFC on Windows Phone 8 is more or less useless. We'd need a way to modify settings and do things without additional prompts. I see where MS is coming from with the current restrictions, but they've gone way, way too far with restrictions. Currently the security implications take all the usefulness out of NFC. While I'm perfectly fine with some random tag not getting full access to my phone straight away, it should be possible to trust tags and by that grant them full access to relevant functionality without additional nag screens. If I explicitly say that a tag can do whatever it's written to do (most likely by me), the OS should step out of the way and let NFC make my life a tiny bit easier.
We need to be able to change settings via nfc
