The Map Search module allows you to create a location so that when users explore the map, they can find the location that you set. You can also add up to three action markers to the locations that will come up in the search or list. A marker is an action button that opens up a certain module. You can add your channel, group, store, booking, or event.
So let's say, for example, you own a couple of restaurants named Stay Healthy, and you have a channel where you post the latest recipes and meal pricing per restaurant branch. You can create a location per branch and assign them to their relatable channels by naming them 'Stay Healthy, including the location name, and when a customer searches Stay Healthy in the map, they will find the locations of your restaurant branches, and an action button will be displayed to open the channel of your restaurant.
