If you have selected the Service Directory option when signing up for Fabrik, you've empowered your community with an opportunity to attract revenue - while offering affordable promotional opportunities to business owners in your community.
Based on your pricing model, you might be able to administer your directory.
Here's a quick guide on how to populate your app with directory categories, and to upload listings to these.
A. Log in
In Community Centre, navigate to Service Directory and click on Manage Listings.
If you don't see this option, then your pricing tier does not allow for you to administer these listings. Please speak to your Fabrik/PAL representative.
B. Add a Category Before you add a Business, you need to set up your categories.
Click on the + Directory Category button on the top-right of the screen.
Type in your Category title.
Try to keep the name to a maximum of 20 characters. If the title is longer than 20 characters, it will be shortened on many devices.
Category names appear in white text by default.
Upload your category icon.
It is recommended the icons of all your categories are designed to in the same colour using a consistent style.
You can upload an image of any file type (such as .png or .jpeg).
The system will resize the icons to fit within the space.
Note that your category won't display in the app until a Business has been added to it.
C. Add a Business
To add a business, make sure you are in the Categories section.
Click on the three dots next to the Category under which the business should appear.
Select Create Business.
4. The image that you upload needs to be a landscape image in an 8:3 ratio (example 800px across by 300px down), and less than 1MB so they can load quicker. 5. Note that, when adding a business, all fields are required.
