Pinning locations

What is Pinning?

Pinning is a method of selecting multiple locations from the map screen.  

  • Visualize multiple trade areas and determine if your locations are sharing trade rings or if your competitors are inside your trade areas.
  • You can pin up to 10 locations to bring into the Reporting Wizard. Selecting multiple locations by pinning allows you to run several reports at once or run a Simply Compare report and see the selected locations' data side by side.

How to pin locations

  1. Select locations by clicking on the pins on the map to open a location container.
  2. The first site you click on will open the locations container on the left. You can minimize the window to see all your pinned sites by clicking the location name at the top.
