‚ÄčLocation card

This card helps to get a location from the visitor with a map interface and allows the visitor to pick a location. Additionally, a default location can be sent to the visitors by specifying the latitude and longitude details.

If the default location is not specified, then the current location of the visitor's device will be considered.

Channel compatibility and limitations

  

WhatsApp:

  • This card is supported in WhatsApp and works similar to the website. 
  • Using the "share location" feature in WhatsApp, a location can be captured in SalesIQ. 

Note: Facebook messenger and Instagram channels do not support this card. However, you can handle it differently using the channel value in the visitor map. For example, provide an if condition statement (if the visitor's channel is Facebook or Instagram) and ask for the visitor's location as a reply.
