What is the Places module?

Can you explain to me what Places are?

Places are the geographic locations in which your organization is working. It could be a suburb of Washington, D.C. or Zimbabwe, for example. Places are used to help you tell the story of the locations in which you work. 

Supporters can go to the page and see specific information about the work being done at that particular Place. You can post messages, videos and photo albums about the Place and supporters who have followed or donated to any Project, Campaign or Sponsorship associated with that Place will be automatically notified. 

To set up your Places:

- Go to Content > Places
- Click +New Place
- Fill out the information, Title is the only information required

*Places can be disabled to not be shown on the public page
*If you have specific contact information per Place, you can add this under the fields Leader, Phone, Email
*You can include a Greatest Need as a text field for the Place - should you want your supporters to donate to something specific to the Place (i.e. a particular campaign or sponsorships)
*You can associate various Projects to the Place - more than one is allowed
*You can include the exact location by name and then listing the latitude and longitude coordinates under Location
*From the public site, supporters can choose a sponsorships based on location - this is from this Places field. You will need to assign the sponsorships to the location by going in the Sponsorships record (Sponsorships, choose the child) and selecting the Place from the drop down menu.
