There are two ways to add your places and link them to a location on the floor plan:

  1. First add all places, and then set their locations. This is also the workflow when your places are imported from an external source (channels, Excel-files) or when you add your places before your floor plan image is available.
  2. One by one add a place and its location. This is convenient when your floor plan image is available and you already know where all places are located.

Before you can set the locations, make sure your floor plans are uploaded to the floor plan page.

Add all places, then set locations

Add places

Go to the page Data, tab Places and click Add place. Enter its basic details:

  • Name: the name of the place.
  • Order: optionally, you can specify an order for the places. This will determine the order of the rooms in the list on the floor plan page in the app and in the daily programme of the web app.
  • Type: choose the selected Type, e.g. Rooms or Booths.
  • Location: as you'll do this later, leave it empty for now.
  • Exhibitor: if you link an institution to a place, clicking on the pin on the map in the app will bring the user to the detail page of that institution.

Click Create and then Save & Close to return to the overview. You can skip the step above if your places are imported.

Set locations

In the table overview of all places, select those for which you want to define the location. You can filter the table on Location set: no to only see the places for which you didn't set a location yet.

Click Place pins on floor plan. In the window that opens, select a place on the right and click in the floor plan to place its pin. If you have added multiple floor plans, you can click the tabs to select the right one. After you're done, click Set all. All placed pins are saved.

Add places and locations one by one

Go to the page Data, tab Places and click Add place. Enter its basic details:

  • Name: the name of the place.
  • Type: choose the selected Type, e.g. Rooms or Booths.
  • Location: click Add to open a window with the uploaded floor plans. Select the right floor plan tab and click in the image to place the pin. Save by clicking Set.
  • Exhibitor: if you link an institution to a place, clicking on the pin on the map in the app will bring the user to the detail page of that institution.

Click Create and then Save & Close to return to the overview.

Edit a place or location

Simply click Edit in the table overview of the Data page, Places tab. 

To change the position of a pin, for example when the location of a booth has changed, click Edit below Location. Place the pin on the new position. To remove the pin from the floor plan, click Remove.

Edit multiple places at the same time

To edit multiple places at the same time, select the items to edit and click Edit selected. The following properties can be edited:

  • Type: you can only change the type if you've selected items of the same type.
  • Lock status: change the status to Locked if you're importing data from external sources (channel, Excel) and you don't want the items to be deleted or edited. Select Unlock to release this.

Delete a place

Select the item(s) to delete in the table overview of the Data page, Places tab and click the button Delete selected in the toolbar. You'll be requested to confirm deletion.
