Hide map layers from initial view

How can I hide map layers from showing on the survey map when the respondent first loads the survey page? I want the respondent to be able to click them on if needed.


Respondents can switch between different map layers in the layer or map menu. It is always located in the upper right corner of your survey. 

For example, if they want to view map pins they placed on the map on the previous survey page, they can click open the layer menu, and select the answer layers they want to see.


You can also hide certain map overlays from being visible initially, but make it possible for the respondent to add them to the map if needed from the layer menu. You can do this in the Settings section of the page, just turn on the Hidden switch for those layers.

 Pro tip

Remember to always check how you have named your map layers. File names like 'citymap_districts.zip' may work for organizing files on your computer, but won't look very good in your survey's layer menu. You can always change them to something more sensible in Materials.
