Why do I need a Google Maps API key to use the Map Widget?2020-05-25T20:26:06+02:00

Our Map Widget uses Google Maps as map technology to display your tips on your website or blog.

Since 2018 Google requires you to have an account (for free) to use their map service on a website. This service offers a monthly free volume for Google’s API services worth $200 USD. This corresponds to 950 map views per day or more than 25.000 per month. In addition, 7 USD is charged per 1000 views (please visit Googles website for the latest pricing). If who have high volume Google offers special volume discounts. If you do not sign up your maps (independent of whether you use myLike or not will be blurred and show ‘for development only’ all over the map. If you have questions please contact us at support@mylike.io.

Please find here the instruction how you can get your API key for free and how you add it to myLike’s Map Widget.

Who can see my tips and lists?2020-05-02T11:53:34+02:00

You can define who can see your individual tip or list – set it to private, for friends only, accessible by followers or visible to everybody.

During the creation of a myLike or a list the screen below appears where you can define the visibility. You can change this anytime.

For example, you can memorize places privately (e.g. for travel planning) and once you have been there and enriched with your own experiences, you can make it visibility for others.

Who can give tips?2020-05-02T11:53:55+02:00

You decide who can give tips to your guests. You might prefer that all tips are only visible under your hotels name. Or you might want your staff to provide their specific view on what are the hippest places to your guests. You can even go a step further – why not invite local people to add to your tips, or your own guests?

What ist the Guest Mode?2020-06-16T15:15:11+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.

Guest Mode

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.

PWA on homescreen

Desktop:
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?2020-06-13T12:10:17+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:

Option 1

  1. open a myLike and click on <Add to list>
  2. then you can either add it to an existing list by tapping on it
  3. or you can create a new one by clicking on <Add List>

Option 2

  1. Open the hamburger menu on the main map
  2. Click on <Lists>
  3. 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 add comments in multiple languages per tip?2020-06-13T11:32:14+02:00

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.

Multilingual comments

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: support@mylike.io.
  • Can I unselect a selected language?: Yes, go to <Hamburger/Settings/Comment languages>, there you can select and unselect languages.
