We just launched a few new features that are revolutionizing the way you navigate Proxi and access your maps. Explore our quick tutorials below to learn the ins and outs of setting up your Proxi account, navigating your backpack, and bookmarking maps. 

How to Log In to Your Account

We’ve unified the experience between sign-in and log-in, and added support for Google and Facebook authentication, creating a seamless experience for you to access everything Proxi.

  1. Go to www.Proxi.Co and select ‘Log In’ in the top right corner
  2. Select your preferred Login Method (Google, Facebook, or Email). After submitting your information, you will be sent an authorization email.
  3. Open the email and click the ‘Log In Now’ Button
  4. You're now logged in! Being logged in enables access to your Proxi Backpack, bookmarking maps and adding other admins to maps.

The Proxi Backpack 

The Proxi Backpack acts as the central hub for all your map making needs. You can create new maps, find your bookmarked maps, and all of your previously created maps in your backpack, eager and ready for your next adventure.

Maps you have created (Admin Status)

  • All of your previously created maps should appear in your Proxi Backpack 
  • These maps will be indicated by the teal ‘Owner’ Tag in the top left corner of the Map Preview 
  • To edit the Map, simply click on the Map Tile and this will take you the Creator Portal

Maps your are a Co-Editor On (Editor Status)

  • When you are invited to collaborate with others on a Map, these will also show up in the Proxi Backpack 
  • These maps are indicated by the peach ‘Editor’ tag in the top left corner of the Map Preview
  • To edit the Map, simply click on the Map Tile and this will take you the Creator Portal

Bookmarked Maps (View Only)

  • When you bookmark a map, these maps will also appear in your Proxi Backpack 
  • These maps are indicated by the navy ‘Viewer’ tag in the top left corner of the Map Preview
  • You cannot edit these maps, so when clicking on the Map Tile you will be taken to a view only setting of the Map and NOT the creator portal 

Create a New Map

  • Simply click the ‘Create a Map’ Tile in the top left corner to start building a fresh new Proxi Map!

How to Bookmark a Map

Bookmarking allows users to save their favorite Proxi maps to their backpack.

  1. Login to your Proxi Account 
  2. Find a Proxi Map you think is super cool and want to save for later
  3. In the lower left corner, you will see the bookmark icon
  4. Simply click the icon and the map will save to your backpack!

How to add a co-editor to your Map 

Before Proxi accounts, editor access to maps was controlled by passing around a secret link. Our new ‘Grant Editor Access’ feature requires email authentication for edit access and allows owners to easily grant and remove edit access to others

  1. Open a Map that you are the Owner of within the Creator Portal 
  2. Navigate to the header and select the + Button next your Initials 
  3. This will open the ‘Grant Edit Access’ Window
  4. Type in your collaborator’s email address and hit ‘Send Invite’ when complete
  5. This will generate an invitation email for your collaborator where they can accept access to your map

You can remove Editor Access at any time by clicking the ‘X’ to the right of your collaborators' email address in the ‘Grant Edit Access’ Window.
