Your locations feature will provide turn by turn directions for your members using the maps feature associated with their device (Apple Maps or Google Maps). The location feature is perfect for displaying your church’s venue and directing your members to an off campus event such as a volunteer opportunity or small groups meeting.
Within your locations feature, you can add a description along with additional information such as small group meeting times, where to park for a volunteer event or even your Sunday morning service times. You are also able to add contact information, such as a phone number, email address and a photo of your church to add a personal touch! The image of your church will display in-app.
On your App tab in the aware3 portal, simply click on the plus (+) button in the top right hand corner of your screen to add the locations feature to your app! Once you have added this feature, enter a campus name, description and additional information if you choose, the location street address and contact information and click save. Don’t forget to add an image of your location.
Once you have entered all of your location details information and uploaded an image of your location and have clicked save at the bottom of your screen, make sure you have uploaded a feature button image for your location feature and toggle it ‘on’ to make it visible in app for your members!
***Pro Tip: You can add more than one location feature throughout your app! Housing the location feature within a feature hub is a great way to incorporate locations for different events!
