Using Store Locator / Show on Map

×

See example on our demo site
To use this, you will first need to ensure certain elements are setup.

Google Maps

  • This presumes that you already have a Google Maps API Key.
  • On the Dashboard, go to System Management.
  • Click on Site Settings.
  • Click on your site's URL.
  • Input the API Key in the appropriate field (Google Maps API Key:) and Save.
  • Reload Site Settings.

Categories Setup

  • On the Dashboard, go to System Management.
  • There, you should see Document Layouts under the Content Management header. Click on it.
  • Cycle through the Document Layouts and ensure that Categories37 exists. If it does not, you will need to create it.

Group Setup

  • On the Dashboard, go to BRAIN.
  • Click on Groups.
  • Create a Group called Show on Map.

Customer/Store/Truck Setup

  • Bring up the appropriate customer contact in BRAIN. You should be on /BRAIN/ContactForm.aspx.
  • Ensure the physical address is filled completely out on the Contact Information tab.
  • Now click on the Groups tab.
  • In the dropdown list, you should see Show on Map. Add this to the contact and save.

The Page

  • Now, for the final step. Create or edit the existing page you want this map to show up.
  • Ensure this page is set to use Categories37 on the Page Information tab.

Voila!

  • At this point, you should be good to go.
  • If you want the image icon representing your location (or store or truck or whatever) to change, our web guys will need to handle that.
  • Finally, if you are using this to represent a truck, any time you change the customer address to represent current location, you'll need to reload the site settings.
