You might be reading it for the fourth time in this Guide, but in case of, please keep in mind that the Assets feature will only be available in a Project if you activate the Store Search API.

Before we start telling you all theres to know about the Assets, we thought it would be clever to quickly define the concept. There it is:

"An Asset is commonly known as a point of interest (store, restaurant, agency, etc.) to be displayed on a Woosmap Store Locator."

In the Assets section, in addition to uploading new Assets you can:

  • edit a chosen Asset data
  • visualize an Asset's json file
  • upload new Assets or update existing ones using a json file
  • downloading all Assets as a json file

Assets multi selection and modification

  • Open the multi selection modal
  • Filter your asset list by Name, Id, City, Country code, Tags and Types
  • Edit timezone, opening hours, special days of your filtered assets
  • Delete or download JSON file of your filtered assets

Manual Selection

  • Click on the manual button on top of the modal
  • Select manually your assets on the assets list
  • Then you can edit, download json file or delete you assets selected manualy

Asset creation & management

We have worked on simplifying the way you can create or update Assets in your Project, first and foremost to enable non-developers users to do it as well.

Now you have 2 ways of doing so:

  • Filling the fields (Simplified view, for the Muggles)
  • Copy/pasting or uploading json content (Developer view, for the IT-wizards)

Another nice thing that could be considered as sorcery: any modification you make either in the Simplified view or in the Developer view will magically be made in the other view.

To create an Asset, there are 4 mandatory fields: latitude, longitude, name and storeId.

Moreover, once you've created an Asset you won't be able to modify its storeId.

We wanted to make this Asset creation as easy and intuitive as possible. Therefore, in order for you to avoid looking for a longitude and latitude we integrated one of our Product in this process.

Thanks to theWoosmap Localities API , you only have to look for an address to automatically get its latitude/longitude and see it visually on a map.


The See on Map is a simple and easy way to visualize all your Assets on a Map. All the more that behind it is hidden a Woosmap Store Locator Widget! Thanks to it you can access all the Asset's details directly on the map, as well as looking for a city to see the Assets near it.

If you want to know more about this Product, you can consult its documentation.


You can download all the Project's Assets as a JSON, make modifications directly inside the JSON then re-upload the JSON through the update Assets. For example, if you need to make bulk modifications and update your Assets closing hours from 20:00 to 19:00, it's as easy as:

  1. Downloading all the Assets as a JSON file
  2. Searching and replacing all 20:00 values to 19:00
  3. Uploading the modified JSON through the Update all Assets

Let's say you want to have the following opening hours for a store: Tuesday-Friday 9:00 to 19:00 ; Saturday 10:00 to 18:00 ; Sunday 10:00 to 13:00 and closed on Monday. With the new Woosmap, it's a piece of gluten-free cake:

  1. Select a timezone for the Asset
  2. Click on the Everyday toggle and set "From 09:00 to 19:00"
  3. Click the Monday toggle to close it
  4. Click on the "+" on the Saturday line and set "From 09:00 to 18:00"
  5. Click on the "+" on the Sunday line and set "From 09:00 to 13:00"

The Everyday will be be the default value for each day, but will be overridden for Monday, Saturday and Sunday.

If you want or need to display your opening hours in your Store Locator Widget in the 12h format (AM/PM), you need to follow this link to know how to use the period parameter.

Asset particularities


An Asset is made of 6 sub-sections:

Info & location: where you configure your Asset's basic information and its 4 mandatory fields (latitude, longitude, name and storeId.)

Opening hours: where you configure your Asset's weekly routine, from Monday to Sunday. You can add several opening time periods within a day, which could for example look like this: shop opened From 8:30am to 10am & from 12pm to 3pm & from 6pm to 11pm (with screenshot). If you want to understand how Opening hours work, you can visit our Data Management API guide: Opening hours. You can now also easily switch between the "All Day" and "custom hours" options!

Special days: where you can add special opening hours for days in particular such as bank holidays.

Types & Tags: which two distincts ways of grouping several Assets together and enable your users filter their search thanks to those. Common tags or types could be Wi-Fi, parking, self-service, and so on. If you want to learn how to configure tags and types in your Store Locator Widget, you can visit ouStore Locator Widget guide: Configuration.

Custom fields: If you wish to dive deeper in what the Woosmap Assets can bring you, you can configure custom fields that will be useful in your Store Locator Widget or Store Locator JS library.

Localized names: You can define alternate names for your Assets. These localized names are useful for multi-language integrations. Combined with our Autocomplete API endpoint you can let your users find your store in their native language.
