How to enable and configure location filtering

Filtering locations by elements

Filtering your locations is one of the most important feature for end-users. Here you find a short list of use-cases that uses filtering:

  • Give me only locations where product X is available

  • Where is the next shop where I can pay with Apple Pay?

  • Show me spots with free parking

Assumed that data is available you should enable any filtering. If you need to exclude that filterable information you should check out the preparation section of the Nearest! Import component.

What can be filtered?

Currently you can filter by the following data types

If it's important to filter for one specific element you need to specify the correct data type when adding that element.
