The StoryBoard content you create can be displayed in two areas on Vamoos.
The Summary – this presents the content in an image led list. It provides a high level overview of the itinerary for the user.
Details – this provides a detailed swipe summary of the itinerary. With the ability to break up the itinerary into days or into different highlights and activities.
In your Settings section you will have chosen the default for which content is to be shown. However, you can on a case by case basis choose which features to show on an itinerary.
Before creating your StoryBoard, please ensure you have completed entering all the Locations – these will be needed as StoryBoard days can be linked to a location – e.g. Day 1.
To create a StoryBoard, select the blue “StoryBoard” Tab.
When you create a StoryBoard for the first time, the page will look like the image below.
To set up a StoryBoard page complete the below fields.
Day Number – You can opt to not show days using the check box at the top right of the screen.
Headline – This can be anything. For example, “Arrival in Los Angeles” or “Camel Ride through the Desert”.
Additional Information – Here you can enter a summary or description of the session’s purpose under the tab “Additional Information”. We recommend to keep this brief, around 2-3 lines as it looks best if the client can quickly see what they will be going on. You can upload more details, such as an agenda or presentation in the Documents Files on the page.
Location – You are able to link each StoryBoard day to a location (set up in the previous tab, “Locations”). This will also pull through any PDFs attached to the location. By default this document will appear under ‘Accommodation’ so it is important to change this in your Company Settings if this is not going to be relevant.
The next stage of creating a StoryBoard page is to add a Background Image and any supporting Documents.
Tips on Photos:
• The larger the image size the better it will look on tablets particularly. Ideal sizes are around 2048 x 2048 pixels and the maximum size is 4MB.
• We use white font for the text throughout the app; so clearly a white background won’t work. Darker images work well, as do blue sea/sky as long as they are not too “busy”.
Additional Documents – These could be anything you like such as day specific guides and other useful details for the user.
When adding these documents you need to provide a Label Title and choose an Icon.
If you use the Flights feature on Vamoos. If there is a flight scheduled on a StoryBoard day, this Flight will appear on that day on the app alongside any day specific documents you have added.
Additional days can be added to your StoryBoard using the “Add Day” button.
