Saved locations make it easy to create new gigs, share location-specific information, and sync reporting data with your internal databases. When you book a gig, you will be able to quickly find any of your saved locations from the dropdown without needing to change a thing.
Your custom locations include various fields such as a custom name, an internal ID#, contact information, and additional notes linked to a specific location.
Note: saved locations are entirely optional. You can continue to use locations without saving them. It's up to you!
HOW TO ADD A SAVED LOCATION
During Book A Gig
When you hit BOOK A GIG, start with Search for a Location. From here, you can simply start searching for any location (powered by GoogleMaps) by typing a combination of name/address/city/state/etc. and select one. At this point, you can still book a gig without saving OR save this location to be used again in the future by hitting SAVE THIS LOCATION.
On the next screen, you will see your previously selected location in green. You can now start to customize this location and enter in a custom name, ID#, tags, contact information, scheduling notes, products available, and more. All of these fields other than name are optional. If you don't change the name, it will default to the suggested name.
MANAGING SAVED LOCATIONS
MY COMPANY > LOCATIONS
You can also manage, edit, or create saved locations from MY COMPANY under LOCATIONS (found in your Settings dropdown menu in the top right-hand corner of the screen). Simply expand the collapsed arrow to show more details and options.
Please note: You will be alerted if you are trying to save a location that is already saved under a different name. It will provide a link to view/edit the existing location.
USING SAVED LOCATIONS WHEN BOOKING A GIG
When booking a gig, your search results will first show you the closest matching saved locations, followed by new/suggested locations from Google. You can search by your custom name OR the ID# you entered -- either way works! If you select a new suggestion, you again have the option to save it.
You can also search existing gigs using saved locations under the location filter, again by name or ID# if present.
NOTE: If you hand off a custom location gig to your agency or a GoGetter, they too will see the name as it is written. This keeps everyone on the same page and using the same language!
