Site Feature: Geolocation check-in!

We have added a new functionality to our website: geolocation check-in! Geolocation check-in will allow our members to get to know other SciMy members in their vicinity. This will prove to be useful especially when you go on scientific conferences abroad, or visiting collaborators’ labs – wouldn’t it be great if you can meet up fellow Malaysian scientists? 

It’s really simple to use our geolocation check-in: 

First method: Via the “Activity” page

Activity Page

Click on the link to the “Activity” on the main menu.

 

On the activity page, you'll be presented with a form to enter a descriptive text. Here, you'll find a button to geotag your message.

Click on the link to “Checkins” on the main menu.

 

On the “Checkins” page, you’ll be presented with a form to enter a descriptive text. Here, you’ll find a button to geotag your message. Click “Post Checkin” and that’s it!
