There are 2 ways you can import your data:

  1. Copy & paste from spreadsheet - simply copy and paste your data from any spreadsheet.

  2. Google Sheets linking - enter the Public link of the Google Sheets file you want to use.

 

We provide a sample spreadsheet for each template. You can also find some helpful tips on creating custom filters and setting up your data

HOW TO PUBLISH YOUR CUSTOM MAP?

You can publish your map in 2 ways:

  1. Use it as a standalone page using the designated page link

  2. Embed it onto your website with the embed link. It works on any website. (How to embed guide for Webflow, Squarespace, and Wix)

PRICING

Why is there a "per view" usage charge?

Google Maps charges us for each map view (in addition to geocoding etc), so it could get very expensive very quickly for us. It also means you only pay for what you use. 

 

When do I need to enter my payment details?

We offer an unlimited access 14-day free trial. At the end of the 14-day period, if you like to continue using our software, you would need to enter your credit card details. At this point, you will be charged a monthly fee and the accumulated map views to date. 

What if I don't provide payment details?

After the free trial, if you don't like our map, no worries you don't need to do anything and the map link / embed code will be disabled automatically. 

HOW TO IMPORT IMAGES

To import images, please include an "image link" column in your dataset. 

You can use 3 types of image links that would work:

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

  2. Imgur "direct link" - Upload your images to imgur.com and copy the "direct link" (IMPORTANT: only the "direct link" would work)

  3. Airtable image links 

WHY ARE LOCATIONS NOT GETTING MAPPED CORRECTLY

First of all, please make sure you have named the address column either "address" or "location".

 

Secondly, our map builder and geocoding is based off Google Maps database so for the best mapping results, we recommend you using one of the two formats below:

  1. Google Maps address - this can be the full address, the "province, country" or just the "country" 

  2. Coordinates - please show latitude and longitude in one cell as "lat, long".  

WHAT KIND OF CALL-TO-ACTION BUTTONS CAN I MAKE

If you want to add a custom call-to-action button to your map, you can add a "call-to-action" column in your dataset.

In the Call-to-action column, you can add all kinds of links including:

  1. Airtable contact us forms

  2. Calendly links to book appointments

  3. Website links

  4. Stripe payment links

  5. Whatsapp chat links

You can include really any re-direct link you'd like, and these links would be automatically converted to a call-to-action button under each location! 

We are always keen to hear from our users. So, if you have any questions or suggestions, or just want to say hi, please feel free to email us at anytime at nocodemapapp@gmail.com.
