Creating a Project
If you have just registered for an Airship account the first step is to set up a project. If you have an existing account then either choose the project you wish to use or select the Create project button in the view all projects page to create a new one. More information on setting up a Project can be found here.
Creating a new Project
Creating a Project is your first step. All your Zones and all geofeatures exist within a Project. More information on adding and managing Bluedot Canvas project can be found here.
Adding a Zone
You’ll need to create a Zone before you can start adding in specific Geofeatures. Each Zone can have one or many Geofeatures – that’s up to you and your use-case. More information on adding and managing Zones can be found here.
The Zone name, Zone ID or a combination of both can be used as an event to be registered to Airship for triggering an Automation. Provide a descriptive name and possibly adopt a naming convention for the Zone name field.
Information on configuring a trigger in Airship’s platform is here.
In the Events textbox while setting up a trigger, enter the event names you want to use. These event names will be used in your app to create Airship’s custom events when entry or exit is triggered by the Bluedot Point SDK. For example:
For an Entry event, we recommend setting the custom event as
bluedot_place_entered in the App and trigger.
For exit enabled Zones, you will have to set up a trigger similar to the entry event. Add another event, e.g.
bluedot_place_exited if you want automation or journey to be triggered when the user leaves a Geofence.
