share them with friends, followers or customers as inspiration.
The idea is that a tour
sequentially represents successive places and – if you want – visually connects them by lines.
(Examples: if you are planning a trip through the USA and always want to have the sequence of the planned stations in mind, or if you want to show hotel guests a sequence of places that they can then start / approach as they like)
a tour is presented as a detailed track and can show places that are on or next to the tour.
(Examples: a hop-on hop-off bus provider candigitally display its bus routes, stops and sights, passengers can track them on their smartphone and always know exactly where they are and what iswaiting for them at the next stop. Bike or scooter rental companies can provide the most beautiful routes through the city to their customers. Jogging or hiking paths can be offered by hotels to guests on the go)
tour without lines
tour connected with lines
tour with GPS track
Option 1: Create a new tour
Go to the <Hamburger Menu> from the main menu
Click on <Lists/Tours>
Click the <Add Tour> button
There you land directly in the edit mode for your tour (you can switch between list and tour)
Give the tour a name and a short description text
Now define how you want to connect the points in your tour. The option you have chosen is displayed directly on the map:
No line – but the places are numbered in the order as you defined in the list
Straight lines – the individual tips are connected with straight lines in the sequence as you defined in the list
GPS data – here you can add an existing route (GPX or KML file) to the places of your tour. Your tips do not necessarily have to be on the route, but can represent options (e.g. hotels, campsites, restaurants… along the tour). Here is a tutorial on how to easily create a KML file directly on Google Maps. Alternatively, download it directly as a GPX from your tracking tool and embed it in your tour.
Define the visibility of your tour (private, friends, followers, everyone). You can change this at any time later again.
Add an inspiring photo that visually represents your tour by pressing the <Add> button. You can change this at any time
Now you can add points to your tour by opening it and pressing < list/tour> (you can also add multiple tips at once by going to a list, hid <edit list> which is the icon with the pencil on the top right of a list and select multiple places, then you tap <…> and select <add to list/tour>).
If you hit <show on map> you can have a look how it appears on the main map
You can change the order of the tips in the tour (and list) by clicking on the <edit List/Tour> (this is the icon with the pen and the lines on the right above the list entries) and moving the entries with the arrows – then press <Save>.
How do I edit my profile?uh2021-02-10T15:45:08+01:00
If you are using the Mobile Concierge or Digital Travel Guide you can add your comments in multiple languages per single tip. This great for your international customers and guests.
You add to the Default language additional languages.
Default is the language which is always displayed in case there is not other fitting translated language for your customer provided by you.
Example: you want that all your customers/guests see your tips in englisch but the Italians should see it in Italian. Then you add your englisch comments in the Default field and you add Italian as add on language in the additional Italian comment field. Then Italians, using myLike in Italian (one of the languages the system works with), see your Italian comments.
A French or German person using myLike in French or German would get your Englisch comments – as there are no dedicated French and German comments from your side.
How to add comment languages?: Just click on the plus on the right corner of the comment field and a selection of languages will pop up. You can select multiple.
Is there an auto translate?: Unfortunately not yet – we recommend www.deepl.com to do your translations.
My language is not there?: You can always comment in the Default comment field in any language you want. Then you can add comment fields in other languages. If you want a language we do not have in the selection yet please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I unselect a selected language?: Yes, go to <Hamburger/Settings/Comment languages>, there you can select and unselect languages.
What ist the Guest Mode?Uwe2020-06-16T15:15:11+02:00
Your customers, guests and audience can now experience your tips right on their browser as Progressive Web App (PWA) without he need to download the myLike App as.
If they click on one of your follow invitations, shared links or ‘Get these tips’ on your interactive maps on your website they have now the option to either use myLike on their browser or download the myLike app.
Mobile Use: If the user opens a link on his mobile device he can decide to either continue as guest (Guest Mode) or load the myLike app. Using the guest mode restricts the user to the viewing mode, he cannot add own content or share content. As a guest he can see what you released to your followers.
The welcome screen displays your logo (you can set them in your profile settings in the dashboard) so you are easily recognized as the inviting party.
The next screen opens then depending on the link you provided:
Link to a list – the list logo is displayed in the right top corner as source
Follow invite – your avatar is displayed as source
Single myLike – the myLike opens in its detail view
Link from an interactive map – opens the like the link to a list
Functional limitations: In guest mode, users are logged in as generic guests (with follower status). This allows them to see all your tips that are released for followers. However, they cannot save tips themselves, create lists or share them with others. For this purpose they must create their own accounts.
Save Guest Mode on mobile phone’s home screen: Your customers can save the Guest-View right on their home screen as an icon. They will be triggered to do os but they can do this also manually any time later.
If the user opens your links on the desktop, he can either send a link to his smartphone himself or use your tips directly on the desktop where myLike gets emulated as PWA.

How do I create a list?Uwe2020-06-13T12:10:17+02:00
Lists are fantastic and very helpful to organize your myLikes (and those of other users) by theme or target group (e.g. ’24 hours in New York’, ‘Activities for kids’, ‘My favorite sushi restaurants’). They also form the basis for our innovative Map Widget, which allows you to convert your lists into interactive maps for your website or blog. You can create as many lists as you like and copy your own myLikes or the myLikes of others into them. You can copy one myLike into several lists.
A list has several characteristics that you can personalize
Theme list photo – choose a nice one as it will be visible when you split the list
Name of the list – short but inspiring
Description of the list – make it exciting for you and others
Visibility of the list – like a myLike you can define the visibility of a specific list to the outside
You can easily create lists in several ways:
open a myLike and click on <Add to list>
then you can either add it to an existing list by tapping on it
or you can create a new one by clicking on <Add List>
Open the hamburger menu on the main map
Click on <Lists>
There you will find the button <Add List>
You can then set the name of the list, add a description, set its visibility to others, and add a theme image.
How can I define whoes tips I see in myLike?Uwe2020-05-02T11:53:33+02:00
One of myLike’s unique features is that it allows you to define per myLike or per list who can see it. So your private beach stays private or only your friends or selected customers can see specific tips. This means: depended of the relationship you have with a person they can see in myLike the tips and lists released for this level of relationship. You can define this during the creation of a myLike or list or change the setting anytime later again.
‘Me’ – only you can see it, nobody else
‘Friends’ – only you and befriended users can see it
‘Followers’ – you, friends and your followers can see it
‘World’ – everybody in myLike can see the myLike or list
Tip: if you share a myLike or list directly via mail or other communication channels the recipient of this unique link can see it independent of the visibility setting.
