Create your Destination(s)
To create a Destination, you’ll need to have an active user and a Bluedot Account. Your Bluedot administrator can easily grant you access or you can contact our team – firstname.lastname@example.org. Your user credentials are used to log into the Canvas dashboard and also authenticate with Config API.
Creating a Destination
A Destination is a physical location your customers arrive at to collect their mobile order – this is usually your store or restaurant. Within Canvas, Destinations are also known as Stores. When creating a store you’ll need to provide a Destination ID.
There are 2 simple steps:
- Create the Store with a
- Create or link a Zone to the store
1. Store creation
From the “Stores” section, fill out the “Add a New Store” form. In the form, you’ll have to input the Destination ID for the store. We recommend using an ID that makes sense for your brand and/or systems. Check the Store Management documentation for more details.
2. Zone creation
Once you’ve created the store, click on Add new Zone and create a geofence – you can use a circular geofence, a polygon or a rectangle. This should cover your restaurant or store.
You can also update the name of the Zone and geofence – both of these details will be included in Tempo Webhook updates.
Close Zone Settings and click the Create/Update button. The Zone is ready, and the isochrones for it will be generated in the Bluedot backend. It takes from 30 seconds to 1 minute for the isochrones to be generated.
If you’d like to link a Zone to a Store (A.K.A Destination) using Config API, you’ll use the following /Endpoints;
When linking a Zone to a Store you’ll have to pass the Destination ID of the Store.
