Custom Guides

Create interactive and comprehensive guides by combining multiple list item types. Some guides examples:


Create a list exclusively of ‘People’ items (or people + one location) to create a directory of staff, faculty, or student leaders. Directories can include locations, phone numbers, email addresses, and the option to send direct messages instantly through Raftr.

Interactive Map

Using ‘Location’ items makes creating campus maps, or more specific maps, easier than ever. Supported by an integration with Google Maps, any location can be plotted and supporting information included on maps.

Virtual Tour

Similar to the Interactive Map, Virtual Tours go one step further with the addition of a video with each location on the map. Videos are automatically played when users select the location on the map.

Dynamic Checklists

Using the ‘Task’ list item, administrators can create a dynamic checklist for users, tracking progress as a whole and individually. Creators of a dynamic checklist have the option to view and message participants (or those who have not yet completed tasks), as well as download a .csv file of completed / not completed tasks by user.
