  • Start by searching for a location
  • Click on the pin then click "Add to Map"
  • Now you can customize the color and icon. Click the paint bucket next to the name of the location (**Note: you have to hover over the name for it to show)

  • Now you can select from a list of colors and icons. More Icons has a huge list to choose from

  • You can also edit the contents of the location. Click on one of the pins, then the pencil icon

  • Under "Who has Access" click "Change" and set the map to "On - Public..."
  • Just to the right of Share click the 3 dots, then click on "Embed on my site"

  • This will give you an URL/web address
  • Copy the URL and send it to your Zerista project manager. We will embed the map into your site and app!
