As part of our End User Demo, the Liquid team has entered the location of our main office in Allentown, Pennsylvania. In addition, we added six additional US-based "dummy" locations that would optimize the demonstration experience. Simply follow the steps below and you will see how your own customers would benefit from this easy-to-use plug-in.
Step 1: At the top left corner of the map begin entering the street address of either your current location or that of the location you are searching around. The map will produce options for you to select as you continue to enter the location address.
(NOTE: You may enter the street address beginning with the number or by simply entering the street name. You may not use a zip code or city name only).
Step 2: Select the best possible location offered for the address you entered.
Step3: Watch the map produce the closest of our seven demonstration locations. You can click on that location to see the address and pin location information provided.
That's it! Short, sweet, and easy for your customers to use. If adding this to your current instance of Sitecore seems like a great idea, you can download it from the Sitecore Marketplace by clicking on the "Download Now" link below.
