Places

With this feature, you will be able to create a list of geolocated places.

It will display all the places on a map, or, if the user opens the sheet of a particular location, he will be able to get the path and directions to this location, by walking or driving.

The listing of the locations is sort according to the distance between the locations and the user, from closest to farthest.

Click on places on the “Add Pages” section to add the feature to your app:

Be sure you have your Google Maps API Keys set.

You can also add other Sections (see Custom Page for more information).
