Collate your Directory Info




If you have selected the Service Directory option when signing up for Fabrik, you've empowered

your community with an opportunity to attract revenue - while offering affordable promotional opportunities to business owners in your community.


Based on your pricing model, you may have to send us your Directory information for us to upload to your app.


Here's a quick guide on what is required for us to populate your app with directory categories and businesses.


How to send your information:

  1. Compose an email to support@fabrik.cloud, and refer to the title of your app in the Subject line.

  2. Provide the text information in either a Word or Excel document.

  3. Attach the image files in compressed/zipped folders.

  4. Further details per information type is provided below.


A. Category Title

  1. Create one Word or Excel document that lists all Categories.

  2. For each Category, type the title accurately as these will be copied and pasted exactly as provided.

  3. Text length: Try to keep the name to a maximum of 20 characters. If the title is longer than 20 characters, it will be shortened on many devices.

  4. Colour: Note that category names appear in white text by default.

  5. Attach this file to your email.


B. Category Icons

  1. Include an icon for every category that you would like listed.

  1. For a Category to display publicly in the app, it must be linked to at least one Business.

  3. For each Business, include the following information: a) Category b) Business Name c) Business Description d) Physical Address (does not need to be complete i.e. can be a suburb, etc. ) e) Email address f) Website URL g) Phone number

  4. File types accepted: .PNG, .JPEG
