There's three concepts that will help you understand how your Canvas dashboard and the Bluedot platform is structured:
The first thing you do when getting started with Bluedot is create a Project in Canvas - from there you can then add Zones and Geofeatures. You can add as many Projects as you would like within your Customer Account, but it's important to know that each Project has it's own unique ID which is used to authenticate the SDK (Read more about authentication here).
Often customers will create a Dev, UAT, and Prod. Project - but this is up to you and dependent on both your architecture and use-case.
Once you have created a Project, you'll start adding Zones. Each Zone must then contain one or more Geofeatures. Each Zone has a unique ZoneID and a Zone Name you can set and edit. You can also apply settings like Time Conditions, Exit Events, and Tags at the Zone level.
Whether you add multiple Geofeatures in each Zone, or keep your configuration with one Geofeature per Zone is really depended on your architecture and use-case. If you not sure on the best approach, simply reach out to our team email@example.com.
Geofeatures is the umbrella term used to describe all the different shapes, sizes and, and types of geofences you can create within Canvas. Once you've created a Zone, you'll have the option to add one or more Geofeatures. Each Geofeature will have has a unique GeofeatureID and a Name you can set and edit.
The conditions that determine the availability of a Geofeature and whether it will trigger for a specific user are applied in the Settings at the Zone level.
Depending on your use-case, you may only use one specific Geofeature (Eg. a circular geofence with a 20m radius) or you may involve multiple (Eg.a circular geofence, a complex polygon & geoline).
