Creating Custom Marker Types

Watch the video above to see someone create a custom marker type for a facility

A marker is an icon on the map that marks where a critical building asset is, like a fire hydrant, a HVAC unit, a wifi router, etc. The marker type is what the marker is, like a fire hydrant. If you need custom marker types to mark where something is at your building and record information about it, you can create a custom marker type. Watch the video above and/or read the steps below to learn how to create your own marker types as needed.

Steps to create a custom marker type

1. Click the marker menu icon in the left sidebar

The marker icon looks like a bulls eye.

2. Click "New Marker Type" if the new marker menu isn't already over the map

3. Give the marker type a name, upload an image to use as the icon, and choose a category for the marker to go under (IE water if you're adding a Water Heater marker)

4. Click "Create Marker Type"

And you're done! Now you can use the marker in your map.

Need to create a new marker type category?

The existing marker type categories are shown in this menu as well, and you can click "New Category" on the top of the panel that shows all the current categories if you need to add a new one.
