How to create a Map Pin

Today I will create a tutorial to explain step by step how to create a pin on our map. Even though over 10.000 people already managed to create one, some people still struggle to make a pin for a series of reasons. We are aware that, due to technical limitations of some of the platforms we rely on, the user experience to create a pin is not the smoothest and most intuitive. So here you go a tutorial to clear all your doubts.

**1. Click Add Pin

**First of all head to our map and click the big red button that says “Add Pin”

I have been waiting about 2 weeks for approval.  Is the delay due to the Christmas/New Year holidays?

Hi 🙂
I’ve also followed the steps to add my pin it is not showing anyting, not even the “approval” message.

Could you help me?

Thanks,

Marina 🙂

Hello, I’ve followed these steps to add my pin but have been ‘waiting approval’ for about a week. Have I missed something important?

Thanks! Sam 🙂

**18. Wait for approval

**Now is all set, you can sit back & relax while we check your pin and approve it. Shouldn’t take too long, a couple of days max 🤞

**17. Click “Save pin”

**Next and last click on the big black button saying “Add pin”.

**16. Add images

**The map is more fun with images. This being images of your machines or lovely face, either way, let’s make this map a little more alive.
*If you are trying to create a pin for your Workspaces we won’t activate it without images (this helps us to make sure you’re really recycling plastic)

**15. Move the pin on the map

**In order to keep your address a little more discreet we’ve given you the option to move the pin on the map. We advise you to zoom out one or two degree and drag the pin so it represents a reference point rather than you exact address. This, we hope, would prevent fans from knocking at your door on Sunday morning 😆

**14. Add your pin details

**Next, you’re now able to fill in all the details about your Map Pin. Try to be as accurate as you can to make the map useful to others otherwise it would lose credibility. Thanks, much appreciated ❤️

**12.Click “Map Pins”

**From your profile click the tab saying “Map Pins” to manage your pins.

**13. Click “Add map pin”

**From the Map Pins tab you can create, edit and delete your pins. One account can have multiple pins. For the sake of this tutorial, we’ll create our first Map Pin. See that big red button saying “Add map pin”? Well, click it.

**11.Go to your profile

**Now head over to your Profile area from which you can create your Map Pin amongst other things like changing your avatar, connect with people and check your notifications or messages. To go to your profile simply hover over the little avatar icon on the top right corner of the screen. A submenu will pop up, click on “My profile”.

**5. Check your email

**Next head over to your email provider and check for the confirmation email. Bear in mind, that sometimes our confirmation email can end up in your spam folder, which is kind of funny considering we work with waste 🤣
