The Maps feature helps in-person attendees easily find their way around your venue and discover points of interest. As attendees explore the map, they click on regions to find features tied to that area of the venue, such as speaker profiles and sponsor booths. Attendees can also access the map from a linked feature, such as a sponsor profile. When they tap the location, the map feature opens and zooms to the associated area.

This connectivity between Maps and other features means your staff will spend less time telling people where to go. 🧭

This article explains how to add the Maps feature, manage maps, and link map regions to other features.

In the modal that appears, search for the feature, click Add, then close the modal.

When you're done, click Save Changes.

Add maps, locations, and regions

There are two main Map components — regions and locations. Regions are clickable sections you draw on top of the map image you upload. Locations are the names you apply to those regions. Either create locations before you start uploading maps and defining regions, or create them as you draw regions.

Add locations

There are three ways to add locations: from the Locations tab, after adding a new region to a map, or when creating a new Session. Let's examine the first two ways.

From the Maps feature's page, click the Locations tab, then click New Location. In the modal that appears, simply enter the name of the location and click Save Changes.

Repeat until you've added all the locations you need. If you forget something, don't worry – you can come back and add more later or add locations while creating regions. 👍

Upload Maps

To upload a map and start drawing regions, click the Maps tab, then click the New Map button.

In the modal that appears, enter a Map Name that clearly tells attendees the corresponding building, level, or area. Next, click the Select Image button to upload a map. Follow the prompts in the uploader to add an image file. Once you've added an image, click the Edit button to crop the image or adjust its rotation and zoom.

Click Save/Upload to start adding Regions to the map.

⭐️ Keep in mind, we recommend finalizing your map file before adding regions to it. Save the map without regions, and then open the Web App and Mobile App as an attendee to make sure it looks good. If you replace the image after adding regions and the new image has different dimensions, you may need to adjust the regions to fit the new map image.

Add Regions

Now, click Add Region, then click and drag to draw a region on the map image. When you draw a region, a small modal appears where you select the location the region corresponds to. Simply select the location from the drop-down and click Save. To add a new location, simply type the name of the location into the search field and click Create "location name".

If you need to edit any of the regions you've added, click Edit Regions, then click and drag the corners of a region to resize it. Click and drag the middle square in a region to move it to a different part of the map. Click Stop Editing to finalize your edits.

To delete a region, click on the region you want to delete. In the modal that appears, click the trash can icon.

Click Save Changes when you're done. You can upload as many maps as you like, so go wild! 🗺

Manage maps and locations

After you've added locations and maps, they appear in a list on their respective tabs on the Maps page. Click the Settings (⚙️) icon to edit or delete a map or location. Click and drag the two-line icon to rearrange item order.

⚠️ Caution! Deleting a location doesn't delete any associated regions. However, regions without an associated location don't appear to attendees.

Click on a map's name to edit its regions or replace the image. Remember that changing a map image doesn't remove or automatically adjust regions you previously added.

Linking map regions to other features

Although the Maps feature is great by itself, it needs other features to be its best self. 🏆 After you've added regions to your map, you can link locations to the following features:

Linking a feature to a map is as simple as picking a location from the 'Location' drop-down in the feature. Refer to each feature guide listed above for specifics on where to add locations for a feature.

Maps in practice

On the Web App and Mobile App, attendees can click the Maps feature to explore your maps. The drop-down at the top lets attendees switch between multiple maps. Attendees click a region to zoom in on the map, then they tap the location name to find a list of everything linked to that location.

If an attendee is viewing a feature linked to a location, clicking the location instantly opens the map and zooms to the relevant region.

After attendees use the Maps feature, review the Feature Comparison chart on the Metrics tab to find the number of clicks for each Map.

Pro Tips 😎

  • Consider having a separate map with your sponsors' logos as another way to showcase sponsors in your Event App.

  • If your venue is very large, break the map into sections and upload the sections as separate maps.
