Location finder feature in SmartBotsLand?

Imagine effortlessly guiding your customers to your restaurant’s various branches with just a click. SmartBotsLand makes this a reality with its innovative ‘Location Finder’ feature. By integrating addresses and locations directly into your bot, you empower your customers to find you instantly.

In this comprehensive guide, we delve into the step-by-step process of enabling the ‘Location Finder’ button in Telegram bots and how to add and categorize different addresses seamlessly.

How to Activate the Location Finder Feature in SmartBotsLand?

Step 1: Setting Categories for Places

Begin by categorizing your branches for easy navigation. Here’s how:

1. Log into your admin panel (Dashboard).

2. Then navigate to ‘Places Category’ under the ‘Places’ menu.

3. Click on ‘New’ to create a new category.

4. Define your desired categories for your places, ensuring clarity and organization.

  • Root: If you want to add a new option to your previous categories, you can assign a root for them (optional)

For example, you can add fast food as a subcategory of restaurants. In the Place Category Title box, write the name of your subcategory (for example, fast food).

  • Places category title: You have to set a suitable name for your category here.

Tip 1: You have to know that you can set some categories as subcategories of others.

Tip 2: The number of your bot depends on which version of the Telegram bot you have selected.

Now, that you have created your desired category for places it’s your turn to create your desired places.

Step 2: Adding Places in SmartBotsLand

Now, let’s populate your bot with detailed branch information:

  1. Access your admin panel (Dashboard).
  2. Go to ‘Create Place’ under the ‘Places’ menu.
  3. Then click on ‘New’ to add a new branch.
  4. Fill in comprehensive details about your branch, including phone number, address, zip code, and more.
  5. Activate the ‘Show’ button to make this information visible to your customers.
  6. Upload a logo or image of your place for added visual appeal.
  7. Set the location of your branch on the map or input latitude and longitude coordinates for accuracy.
  8. Finally don’t forget to hit ‘Save’ to preserve your changes.

Note: your customers should turn on their GPS to have access to this feature.

Take a look at the ‘Create Place’ menu again. In addition to the New button, there are four other buttons on top of the page:

Delete Selected: you can select and delete more than one place simultaneously.

Refresh: if you have saved the changes that you made earlier but they do not appear in the list, click on this button.

Get the location file: by clicking on this button, you will receive an Excel file containing all the information of your branches, plus a ‘Place Category Code’ which is unique for each of your branches.

Import file: you can modify the information in your Excel and import the new file in your panel. The new information will be added to your panel automatically.

Note: When adding or changing information in Excel, remember to use the same code for each category.  For example, if the code for the restaurant is 115, you have to write 115 if you want to add a new place to the restaurant category.

Step 3: Enabling the ‘Location Finder’ Button

Now, let’s make it easy for your customers to find your branches:

  1. Navigate to ‘Bot Buttons’ in the ‘Bot Management’ menu.

  3. Scroll down and select ‘Select Default Submenus’.
  4. Then activate the ‘Location Finder’ button.
  5. Click ‘Edit’ to save your changes.
