Add Business Details and Location to Maps Favorites on Microsoft Lumia 535
Edited by Thor, Alexander Avdeev
Welcome to VisiHow! In this video, we are going to show you how to add the location and the information of a business to the "favorites" folder when using the Microsoft Maps application on the Microsoft Lumia 535.
Turn the phone on by pressing the power button located on the right-hand side of the phone. Once the phone is activated, the lock screen will become visible.
Swipe the lock screen up to get to the home screen.
Find the Maps tile on the home screen. In this tutorial, it is pinned to the home screen. The tile has a blue background with a white map inside. If the Maps tile is not pinned to the home screen, swipe left to find it in the application menu.
Tap on the Maps tile once it is located to enter the application. To gain fast access to the business details about a favorite location, the location must be found and saved to the "favorites" folder.
Tap the leftmost icon located at the bottom of the screen. The icon has a white circle with white buildings inside. This will initiate the scout function and display "Finding cool stuff..." on the screen. As soon as the search has been finished, the "eat+drink" screen will be displayed.
Swipe left to find other options, such as "see+do" and "shops".
Swipe left until the screen is focused on "eat+drink". Focusing on this section will allow showing the aim of the tutorial more efficiently.
Tap on a location. For this example, El Dorado, a restaurant, is tapped. This will bring up the information on the location. There will be the full address with the post code, the phone number, and the opening hours, which is quite useful. If the location is frequented and liked, then it needs to be saved for easy access. It will not be needed to search for the location again if it needs to be visited once more.
At the bottom of the screen, tap the icon with a white star and a plus in a white circle. This is the button that adds the selected location to the "favorites" folder. More selections will appear on the screen. The selections will be "home" (which will set the location as home), "work" (which will set the location as work), or "other" (which will set the location as something that is not either of the two others).
Change the selection by pressing the white circle next to "home", "work", or "other". This will place a white dot inside of the circle to indicate the selection.
Tap the text box under "Nickname" to add an alias for the favorite place. The keypad will be brought up so that the nickname can be entered.
Tap the leftmost icon at the bottom of the screen to accept the selection and save it to the favorites section. The icon is a white circle with a white disc inside.
Tap the back arrow button at the bottom of the phone. Tap the arrow again to go back to the map.
Zoom out for a better view.
Tap the three white dots in a line to bring up a menu. This will allow adding the place to the "favorites" folder. For example, if the restaurant El Dorado was visited last week, the meal was good, and the place might be visited again, then such information as the address and phone number is needed to be accessed quickly.
Tap "favorite places". The location has been saved in the "favorites" section, so the location will be brought up on the screen along with other favorite locations.
Tap the required favorite location. The choice is El Dorado for this tutorial. The information on the location will be brought up. There will be the phone number and address that can be easily viewed.
Tap the "directions" button to find the location and plan the route to it from the current location.
Tap the "address" button to go to the location on the map. The directions will not be given. As it can be seen, everything is very simple, and the efficient way of saving information is handling the "favorites" folder.
To remove the location from the "favorites" section, tap the icon with a white star and a minus sign in a white circle at the bottom of the screen.
To confirm the removal of the location from the "favorites" section, tap "remove".
To cancel the removal and go back, tap "cancel". The location does not need to be removed in the tutorial, so this button is tapped.
Tap the "address" field. This will bring up the map. The location will be focused upon, and its name will be shown. The location will be in the center of the screen.
This concludes the tutorial on how to add the location and the information of a business to the "favorites" folder in the Microsoft Maps application when using the Microsoft Lumia 535.
