How to create a Map Pin

23/06/2018 at 10:04

Today I will create a tutorial to explain step by step how to create a pin on our map. Even though over 10.000 people already managed to create one, some people still struggle to make a pin for a series of reasons. We are aware that, due to technical limitations of some of the platforms we rely on, the user experience to create a pin is not the smoothest and most intuitive. So here you go a tutorial to clear all your doubts.

5. Check your email
Next head over to your email provider and check for the confirmation email. Bear in mind, that sometimes our confirmation email can end up in your spam folder, which is kind of funny considering we work with waste 🤣

14. Add your pin details
Next, you’re now able to fill in all the details about your Map Pin. Try to be as accurate as you can to make the map useful to others otherwise it would lose credibility. Thanks, much appreciated ❤️

15. Move the pin on the map
In order to keep your address a little more discreet we’ve given you the option to move the pin on the map. We advise you to zoom out one or two degree and drag the pin so it represents a reference point rather than you exact address. This, we hope, would prevent fans from knocking at your door on Sunday morning 😆

16. Add images
The map is more fun with images. This being images of your machines or lovely face, either way, let’s make this map a little more alive.
*If you are trying to create a pin for your Workspaces we won’t activate it without images (this helps us to make sure you’re really recycling plastic)

18. Wait for approval
Now is all set, you can sit back & relax while we check your pin and approve it. Shouldn’t take too long, a couple of days max 🤞
