To display Tour on page use Tours Element in Page Builder screen.

Each tour is defined by several specific properties divided into:

  • Location
  • Additional Information

Location

Location of each tour is defined as a path of checkpoints. New checkpoint can be added by clicking on the map and has several properties:

  • Title – name of current checkpoint
  • Description – short information about checkpoint that appears with Title if user click on the map
  • Checkpoint Icon – custom icon that displays on the map
  • Align – alignment of the map icon. Select center for symmetric round or square icons and bottom for pins, flags etc.

All checkpoints are interactive and can be moved or removed directly on the map (path will be automatically updated). As a valid checkpoint is considered each point that has filled at least a Title or a Description. Points without Title and Description will never be displayed on the map. If Display All Checkpoints option is off only starting and ending points will be displayed on the map.
