Available to the Grandmaster subscription tier and above. Upgrade here.


Draggable markers are a type of marker that can be moved in presentation view by anyone. When someone moves the marker, its new location is saved. To create a draggable marker:

  1. Create the marker as usual, and make it either a pin or a label.
  2. Instead of clicking the "Finish" button, keep clicking "Next" until the last optional step. You will find the "Draggable pin" option there.
  3. Click "Finish & Create".

You can also set (or unset) a marker as draggable like this:

  1. Edit the marker you want to change.
  2. Scroll to the bottom and click "Show advanced options".
  3. Check or uncheck the "Set as Draggable" checkbox as desired.
  4. Click "Save changes" at the top right.
