Using Category Filters

Filters are a great way to:

  • Differentiate between different types of locations (Free WiFi, Kids Clothing, Drive-thru, Showrooms, etc)
  • Identify which products or product lines are available at each location
  • Show where a specific brand or sub brand can be purchased on one map

Filters are disabled by default so if you wish to use them, you must first enable them on your Settings page. We offer two ways for your customers to choose Filters - either using check boxes or selecting from a list. You can switch between these two options using the Filters option founder under 'Filter Settings'.

To add a Filter to a store, you can either edit the Store manually by clicking on the Store on the Locations page or upload the filter information using our Bulk Upload feature. In our sample download format you will see a 'Filters' column. Multiple Filters can be applied to a single store by separating them with a comma. For example, to add two filters called 'Free WiFi' and 'Drive-thru' to a store entry, you would upload the following entry:

Free Wifi,Drive-thru

When a checkbox is checked or an entry is selected from the select box, the store locator will automatically update the list of locations and the markers on the map to show only those locations that fit the selected check box.

As always, if you need any help setting up Filters please contact us.
