Locations (App)

Locations are a tool for users to find their way to and around your event. In this article you can find how to set up, edit, and delete locations as well as all of it's features.
Available for: in-person events; packages: core, advanced and extensive
As well as being able to set up locations, you can also create sub-locations. For example, you might use this to distinguish between rooms within the building your event is being held at.

The home page

To find the locations feature within the admin panel, hover over the content tab and select 'Locations'.

Managing locations

Creating a location

  1. 1.
    Open the home page.
  2. 2.
    Click on 'New location'.
  3. 3.
    Complete the fields as described.
  4. 4.
    Click on 'Add location'.
We recommend using the dimensions 400x200 for the image of the location in the app.

Editing and deleting locations

Each location has two icons to their right:
- Edit icon: Click here to make adjustments similarly to when first creating a location.
- Delete icon: Click here to remove the location altogether.

'Part of'

When you make or edit a location, there is a section known as 'Part of'. You might use the locations function to upload rooms (Such as the entrance hall, cafeteria, or gallery etc), but these rooms are 'part of' your main location which is the venue itself. Therefore utilise this option to distinguish when your location is part of another.
For users who are struggling to find a room location that's part of the main venue, you can couple this room with it's corresponding interactive floor plan to help people find their way around. Setting this up is done in the interactive floor plan, so check out the article here to learn how to do this.
Once set up, your users will be able to find the link to the floorplan on the location overview, like in the example below:


Tip: By tapping on the location and then the target symbol, users will immediately get directions to your event from wherever they currently are.
