Note that it is strongly preferred that Sku's with RFID tags be limited to a quantity of 1. I.e. if you receive two identical watches on one invoice, it would be better that you assign each of them a separate Sku.
If you have the type of TracTech printer and reader that we recently programmed in VJS, you can activate it by typing TRACTECH in the box Type of RFID Equipment on the Inventory Cont. page of Preferences
On the Tag Designer screen, choose "New" and create a tag layout for that printer - similar to the below for string tags.

which will make a copy of that layout
of which you can change the name
When you print tags, the Default layout is selected by default, but you can select which layout you want
