FAQ regarding issues with the items’ visibility in the mobile audio guides

Here we have gathered the FAQ regarding problems with the display of various items – museums, tours, museum exhibits, points of interest, etc. in the mobile audio guides.

I cannot find my museum (tour) in the izi.TRAVEL mobile app.

In the mobile app, you can see the museum but not the created collection – only the individual exhibit items.

Several museum exhibit items are not visible in the mobile app.

I added a new language to the museum description and all the exhibits but the mobile app does not offer the option to switch to that language.

Clicking the “Show on izi.TRAVEL” button opens an Error 404 page.

I created a museum (tour) but cannot find it in the izi.TRAVEL mobile app.

  1. The museum is set to a private mode (invisible to all). Check the visibility settings:

Several of the museum exhibit items are not visible in the mobile app.

Possible reasons:

Possible reasons:
