The objects in your space aren't just beautiful, they're useful too. Admins of your space can set them up to:

🎥 Display onboarding videos

📃 Share documentation

🍔 Access food integrations like UberEats or DoorDash

🤣 Make you laugh (by sharing jokes, memes, gifs etc.)

Let's walk through how to do that, shall we?

🎉 Walkthrough

1. Add any object from the Mapmaker to your map. In this example we've placed a whiteboard.

2. To add an Image, press 'I' and then upload an image. The image will be overlaid on the object.

3. To add other integrations, select the object and press 'E' Doing so will unfurl a new menu of options.

**Note: this is only possible if you are an Admin of the space.

Broadcast Podium: Allow people to walk up to your object and make announcements to everyone.

Embedded Page: Add an embed link (typically to video platforms like YouTube, Vimeo etc.). This will open a screen that will play the video without needing to leave SoWork.

External Link: Add an external link - a Google Doc, a Miro board, a website - and people who interact with your object will be taken to that link in another tab.

Food: Integrates links to UberEats and DoorDash. People can click the object and then order their food :)

Game: Connects to a suite of games collected from around the web (Smash Karts, Skribble, etc.).

Teleport: Creates a Harry Potter like portkey, where people can touch the object and teleport to a map of your choosing.

Travel Menu: Adds a teleportation menu for people to select from and travel to.

Upload File: Uploads a file - a PDF, a meme, a joke - that people can see.

Whiteboard: Integrates with any live whiteboard for people to collaborate on in real time.
