I created a landing page for my group. And I wanted to place journal entry pins on the map so my players can click on the icon and read what had happened there. But when I go and place the pins my players cannot see the icons for the pins. I have selected that the pins be visible and gave them all the observer status, but none show up when they log into the landing page. Is there something that I am doing wrong that they cannot see them?
This is something that I wrestled with in my own game a fair bit.
The pins will only be visible if your players have activated the Toggle Notes Display option
I used the Journal Notes to show skill check prompts and descriptions to my players but they kept forgetting to activate the toggle and missed a fair few things. I’ve made a feature suggestion in the Foundry Discord that a keybinding be added to make it easier to inform new players how to activate it.
In my game, I started relying on a ‘point of interest’ token somewhere on the map (a token with a simple animated .webm image of a sparkle from JB2A to catch the attention), to remind them to Toggle Journal Notes on in areas where I’ve placed them.
I had them do that and only 1 of the pins showed up. Also when they go to click on the pin they cannot read anything that I have connected with the journal notes I have assigned to the pin. Thanks for your input and maybe there is something else I am overlooking. I’ll keep working on it though.
