One of the most common questions when implementing a new system is “What is customizable?” Since RideAmigos is a SaaS (software as a service) platform, there are some key areas that are yours to customize, specifically items on the home page, the dashboard, and the trip planner. These are currently all areas that will be edited by the RideAmigos staff, but you can send requests for updates by submitting a support ticket.

Home Page : What is customizable?

  • Answer : Pretty much everything. The home page is your place to match your branding and make it a transition for your users from your main website to the RideAmigos platform.
    • Your logo will be placed in the top-left of the platform and will show on all pages of the RideAmigos platform
    • The navigation bar colors can be changed to match your branding, and this will persist through all other areas of the site.
    • If you would like to go with our stock homepage, you may have the background image replaced, and change any text or icons on the page to match your marketing efforts.

Dashboard : What is customizable?

  • Visible Widgets
    • Is your system focused solely on trip logging and planning? Request to have the leaderboard removed.
    • Current widget options:
      • Profile Widget
      • Trip Plan Search Widget
      • Trip Plan History Widget (Favorites and Recent Searches)
      • Trip Logging Widget (manual logging can be turned off if using an API to import data or Moves integration)
      • Leaderboard Widget
      • Additional Widget options coming in the future
    • Check out the examples below for ideas
  • Trip Log Mode Options
    • Our stock modes are : Bike, Carpool, Telework, Transit, Vanpool, and Drive Alone
      • We can add to, remove from, or customize this list as necessary
      • Ex. We have had many systems add options such as Fully Electric Vehicle, Motorcycle, Trolley, and more
      • If it is a non-standard mode (ex. Rocketship), we’d just need emissions calculations data if not provided by standard reporting sources

Trip Planning : What is customizable?

  • Trip Plan Modes
    • Our automatic standard mode options are Carpool, Walk, Bike, Drive
    • If you have GTFS data for Transit agencies in your region, we can add Transit routes
    • If you have Vanpools available to your users, we can add Vanpool as a mode to match to (works similarly to Carpooling)
    • Have custom map data you’d like to have on the trip planner such as bike lockers, zip cars, or park and ride lots? We can help! If you already have the data in an Esri ArcGIS Map Feature layer or a geojson file, we can just drop that in. If you have it as a shapefile or KML layer we can use those as well! None of those available? A spreadsheet with the Location Name, Latitude, and Longitude of each point will work also!

Administrator and Network Manager Tools : What is customizable?
