(3a) Search Bar (3b) Area Selector (3c) Map (3d) Nearby places (3e) Foursquare place indicator (3f) Momento place indicator
Momento will display a list of nearby places (3d). This list will be comprised of nearby places from foursquare (3e) and places which have already been added to your Momento i.e. places you have already visited (3f).
Tap the place you would like to add to the moment. Only one place can be added to each moment.
Searching for a place
If you want to manually search for a nearby place tap the 'Search' bar (3a) and type your search term.
If you wish to search for a place which isn't nearby — useful when entering past moments — you can change the area of the search by tapping 'Current Location' in the Area selector (3b). From here you can search for a city, town or village. When returning to the main 'Add Place' screen you will notice the map will have updated and you can now search for a place within the scope of the new area using the search bar (3a).
Creating a new place
If the place you want to add doesn't exist, such as 'Home' for example, type the desired name of the location in the search bar and then scroll to the bottom of the list and select 'Create Home'.
You will then be displayed with a map confirming the location of the place. By default this will automatically display your current location.
Changing the location
You can change the location of the place by tapping on the map. From here you can use the search bar at the top to search for a specific address, town or city. If you change the location of the pin when you tap 'Back' you will be prompted to update the address of the location.
Once you're happy with the location tap the 'Next' button in the top right to proceed.
Momento will automatically import the address details for the location you selected. Make any adjustments you feel are necessary and then hit 'Done' to save the new place.
To add people you're with tap the 'Add People' icon (1g). Momento will show a list of recent people to make it quick and easy for you to add people you spend a lot of time with. Select the people you wish to add and tap 'Done'.
If the people you want to add don't exist in the recent list, tap the search bar at the top and start typing the name of the person you wish to add. Momento will search all the people you have interacted with (i.e. people imported from feeds) as well as the contacts on your device.
Adding a new person
If the person you want to add doesn't exist, type the desired name in the search bar and then scroll to the bottom of the list and select 'Create'.
To add tags tap the 'Add Tag' icon (1h). Momento will show a list of recent tags to make it quick and easy for you to tag the moment. Select the tags you wish to add and tap 'Done'.
If the tags you want to add don't exist in the recent list, tap the search bar at the top and start typing the name of the tag you wish to add. Momento will search all the tags you have previously used, including those which you have used in imported activities from your feeds.
Adding a new tag
If the tag you want to add doesn't exist, type the desired tag label in the search bar and then scroll to the bottom of the list and select 'Create'.
To add a photos tap the 'Add Photo' icon (1f). Momento will show the photos from your device sub-divided by day.
'Attach photos to this moment' switch
When adding photos to Momento you can choose whether or not to attach the photos you select to the current moment.
If this setting is ON — This will add the photos to the current moment and group them together irrespective of the time they were taken. This will add photos in the same way that Momento Classic did.
If this setting is OFF — This will add photos at the date and time they were taken. Photos will be grouped dynamically based on the time they were taken and where they were taken. Selecting this may create 'Moment Groups'. More information on Moment Groups can be found below.
Day / This Day / Recent Filter
This will filter photos displayed in the following manner:
Recent — Photos taken in the last 90 days
This Day — All photos taken on date that the current moment is set to.
All — This will show all your photos (this can take some time to load on devices with a lot of photos)
Choosing photos from a photo album
To select photos from an album on your device just tap the back button (labeled 'Photos') button in the top left and select the album.
If photos aren't loading remember to check the 'Filter' setting is set to 'All'.
Selecting and previewing photos
You can select photos by tapping on them or you can tap an hold to see a preview.
To remove a photo simply tap on the white 'X' icon in the top right of the photo thumbnail. This will remove the photo from the moment. If you have any text or tags with the moment then this information will remain.
Date and Time Prompt
Momento may prompt you to ask if you would like to change the time of the moment to match the first photo you have selected. If you choose not to, a separate moment will be created with any text or tags you added before selecting the photo(s).
If you choose not to attach photos and have selected multiple photos, Momento will automatically divide them into moment groups based on their location and the time they were taken. Moment groups may span a period of time and this will be displayed in the moment metadata (4a).
When multiple groups are displayed you can add tags and people to all the groups in bulk using the icons in the toolbar or you can edit groups individually.
To edit a group separately, tap on the 'Edit' icon (4c) beside the group you wish to edit. To delete a group, tap on the 'Delete' icon (4b).
When editing a specific moment group you can add a note or add people, places or tags. This will only apply to that specific group of moments.
You can navigate deeper into moment groups by tapping the 'Edit' icon (4c) again until you are presented with the individual moments.
Depending on the changes you make, this may split the moment off into its own moment group.
For more information on moment groups, see the 'What are moments and moment groups?' article.
Saving your Moment
Once you're happy with the moment tap 'Save' from the 'compose screen' to save your moment.
If you're inside a moment group you may have to navigate back to the main edit screen before you can see the 'Save' button.
If you choose to cancel the moment you will be prompted asking if you would like to save the moment as a draft.
For more information on drafts see the 'How do I access a draft moment?' FAQ article.
