MiTravel Tutorial: Introducing Location Cards

published on 08 April 2022

To get started, first create a list of locations you want to potentially visit.

All you have to do is search it up in the destination and activity browser and add it to your Planning Board. Even if you aren't familiar with the area, MiTravel can help you out!

Simply type into the search browser any keywords (eg: barbeque, hiking) and our Explore Tab will pop up plenty of locations for you to explore. 

MiTravel’s built-in browser allows you to search up any place you’re interested in, from local attractions, restaurants, to landmarks, and add as many location cards as you want.

Location Cards are the backbone of your planning board.

With the Explore Tab, you can search up attractions, accommodations, restaurants, practically anything, and have it saved to your Planning Board later as Location Cards.

MiTravel will then show you all the relevant information you’ll need, such as:

  • Location ratings
  • Map view
  • Hours of operation
  • Photos
  • Contact information
Click on a location to see their rating, photos, address, contact information, hours of operation, and a link to their website.

Color Code Your Location Cards

When you hover over a card, you’ll see that there are many options on the bottom. Here, you can change the header color to color code your location cards however you want.

The possibilities are endless! You could have each color represent the plans for a given day, organize the location cards by the activity, or have each person label their location cards with their unique color! 

How to Use Tags

Additionally, you can also add tags to categorize your location cards and filter through them.

One example is applying the

You can also tag people to show who will be joining a particular activity, set a time to schedule the location card, attach any additional files you want, and write notes to share your thoughts.

You can edit the Location Card to add further information. For example, make changes to date/time, include tags, upload file(s), write notes for your group to see, and more.
