How to manage and delete saved maps

After a while, the list of saved maps for your school may have grown so much that you want to have a tidy up and organise this list.
You can organise your maps using the Map Manager tool. This tool is only available to teachers or anyone with the access PIN number.

Open Map Manager

To access the Map Manager click on the icon Map Manager icon in the tool bar.
This will open the PIN entry box. Your school's PIN number has been sent to the Primary Contact. If you don't know who your Primary Contact is or they aren't available, please contact the EDINA Helpdesk at digimap.schools@ed.ac.uk to obtain the PIN.
Enter the PIN and click OK.

The Map Manager window will open, listing the Saved Maps under your school's account.
Click on any map to view it in the map window in the background.

Sort your list

You can sort the list of saved maps using any of the fields (title, name, class and date) to organise, find and group maps to delete more easily.
