Locations ApplicationLast updated 04.05.23
The Locations Application is a simplified view of the Directory Application only showing the locations data. It is a database of location information built into Atlas. This information is automatically pulled into the Location Employees Widget, Location Map Widget, Location Special Hours Widget and Location Cards Widget.
Any changes in the Directory Application will propagate through the website automatically.
How to access the Locations Application
From the Atlas Kentico main dashboard open the Application List by clicking on the white sun icon on orange on the upper left. From here, shortcut to the Locations application by typing “Locations” in the search applications field. Click on “Locations” to open application.
Atlas Widgets that Display Locations Data
Location Employees Widget
The Location Employees Widget functions only on the Locations Details page type. It displays the employee’s photos and names in rows. The employees displayed are governed by the locations to which they are assigned. If the employee is assigned to more than one location, they can appear on more than one page in the website. Working with the widget first requires adding this data to the Directory Application.
Location Map Widget
The Location Map widget automatically displays map data entered into the directory database onto an interactive, responsive Open Street map. Clickable pins open popup windows containing location detail information. The standard map will automatically resize to fill the space available within a grid, accordion or tab.
The map data can be styled to appear in different visuals including a standard map, a standard map with a text table below or a series of individual cards with or without a location photo.
Location Cards Widget
The Location Cards Widget automatically displays map data as individual cards with or without a location photo. This widget allows the user to display a single location that is entered in the Directory Application. The information is displayed in the visual form of a card. This location card will provide a photo, address, phone number and the directions link along with the option to display the location details link. Because it dynamically pulls information from the Locations Application it is a great way to feature one location.
Location Special Hours Widget
The Location Special Hours widget allows content editors to create expandable accordion panels containing detailed information for one or more locations. This includes opening and closing times by day, additional explanatory text and the contact phone number.
Special hours information is added to the location in the Directory Application. Any location with special hours added will appear in an accordion panel automatically.
Adding Location Data
- Click on “New Location”
- Enter Location data. Note that the two key properties for connecting to the live map are the Location Name and the Latitude and Longitude. Additional data can be added as needed.
