2. Customise image height in pop-up

More customisation features

Over the last few weeks, we have been focused on making our platform more robust. 

To start, we added the flexibility for you to customise the data type of each column at data import. We take an intelligent guess to the type of data you have, but you have the final say.

What it means is, you can decide if you want your data to show:

  1. as basic information or a map filter; and also

  2. what type of basic information (e.g. website link, the cover image, etc)

In addition to greater customisation, we also made our published maps 20% lighter in size so it loads faster when viewing from a slower network. It's our continued effort to ensure your beautiful maps show up fast to your target audience.

More customisation features

We are super excited to announce two more new customisations:

1. Embed audio player

Now you can embed audio player for your audio file links. All you need to do is add a column in your database and make sure you have the keyword "audio" in the column heading.

2. Configure custom domain / slug URL for Webflow CMS

For all Webflow CMS users, you can now configure your own custom domain / slug URL as a part of our Webflow CMS integration. Once configured, it would automatically create a CTA in your map that takes users to each individual page you have set up in Webflow.

More customisation features

Following the successful rollout of our Airtable and Webflow CMS integrations, the biggest feedback we got was that users only want to show selected fields on their map (both in terms of map filters and the pop up box).

 

We are super excited to announce that NOW YOU CAN! :)

 

We have just released two new customisation capabilities in "3. Customise" section:

  1. Map filter customisation

  2. Pop up box customisation

Map filter customisation

Previously, we automatically displayed all the non-basic information fields as filters (i.e. excluding name, address, website/URL, telephone). Now you will have complete control over which filters you would like to show on your map!

 

All you have to do is toggle on and off:

 

 

Pop up box customisation

 

Similarly to map filter display, previously it was all automatically created based on ALL the data columns in your database. Now you will also have control over which fields you would like to show in each pop up box.

 

All you have to do is toggle on and off:

New features and bug fixes!

We are super excited to announce a number of new feature releases and bug fixes:

1. Customise your own initial map zoom 

In "3. Customise" section, you can now set your own initial map zoom to customise your default map display further. Simply switch to manual setting and you can enter the initial map center as well as zoom level. For more details on how it works, please refer to this blog post.

2. Customise your own search bar 

In "3. Customise" section, you can now customise the "search bar" with 2 different types of location search. For more details on how it works, please refer to this blog post.

i).  Search based on a general geography (what we had before) plus ability to set country restrictions so you can restrict the search results to a specific country.

ii). Search based on your list of locations mapped - your site visitors would now be able to search your list of mapped locations using either full/partial "place name" or "location / address".

3. Bug fixes

  • Some of you have encountered issues with auto map refresh when you tried to sync the latest data. This has been fixed. 

  • You can now do multi-line texts in cells for both Google Sheets & Airtable imports

  • Previously data import would fail if there is special " (double quotation) character. This has also been fixed. 

June 20, 2022

Airtable integration is here!

We are super excited to announce that Airtable integration is now live!

Our Airtable integration will be the second major third party integration on our platform. Now you can connect your Airtable data to your maps!

Product locator template

We are super excited to announce that we have released our Product locator template!

While Google Maps have made it easy for us to quickly find the nearest store, locating specific product or collection is still very tricky especially for those who also sell in partner locations or different types of businesses. This is particular true for Food & Beverage and Consumer & retailer. 

With our Product locator template, you can include many different filters to help your customers find the exact product they are after - e.g. business type (the type of businesses that carry your product), available product at each location, and purchasing options etc.

New features

Imgur.PNG

We rolled out a couple new things over the weekend:

1. We have further enhanced the way our map zoom works. Now, as your users zooms in and out of the map, the list of places on the left will also change to match what is shown on the map; and

2. Maps with filters will show filters open as default so there will be no risk of your users missing the awesome filter feature. 

Changes to image link upload

Due to Google drive image upload restrictions, some of you may have noticed issues with your Google drive image links. We apologise for the inconvenience. Rest assured, we have found an even easier alternative to Google drive image links - Imgur.com.

So now you can use 3 types of image links that would work:

  1. Public Image URL's - e.g. Getty images

  2. Airtable image links

  3. Imgur direct links - Upload your images to imgur.com and copy the "direct link" (IMPORTANT: only the "direct link" would work - see screenshot below)

Google Sheets integration

We are super excited to announce that we have completed our first major integration!

Previously, to import and update data, you would need to copy and paste the entire dataset into our builder. Now, you can import and update by simply linking it to one of your Google Sheets files!

For more details on how it works, please refer to this blog post.

We are super excited to announce that you can now assign marker by location group!

A number of our users asked us if we could allow them to assign different marker to different types of location. So we spent the last few days working on it and now it is live! 

How it works

1. Under "Marker style", you can select how you want to assign marker:

i)  use the same for all or

ii) assign marker by location group (e.g. "By industry")

2. These "location groups" are based on user imported dateset

3. For each location group, you can click on the marker to assign a specific marker for that group

February 14, 2022

New templates

Today, we are rolling out 2 new templates:

  1. Event Calendar template (how to use)

  2. Restaurant search template (how to use)

These two are our first 2 Pro templates custom-designed for specific industry use cases.

Fully mobile responsive

We are super excited to announce that all of our maps are now fully mobile responsive!

Some of you may have noticed that we didn't do a changelog announcement last week. That is because we spent the last 2 weeks optimising our mobile responsiveness. 

We shipped out our software in just under 2 months and we decided to leave mobile responsiveness out until we know we have live users. As soon as we knew people have published their maps, we started working on our mobile responsiveness and it took us a solid 2 weeks. 

Now it is done, we hope you like look and feel!

February 7, 2022

New features

1. Simply include a “Call-to-action link” column in your data with the redirect website URLs ​

2. A Call-to-action button will be generated for each place and you can rename the button to whatever you want - “Buy image”, “More details” “Donate” etc.

Our bulk image import feature now accepts Imgur links, Getty image links as well as Airtable image links. 

Today, we rolled out 2 features:

  1. Custom Call-to-Action buttons

  2. Enhanced bulk image import

 

I. Custom Call-to-Action buttons

 

Custom CTA buttons are crucial for effective lead generation and revenue conversion and we wanted to make sure it is as simple and automated as the rest of our map builder.
