    Hi Dave

    We have planned for the user to be able to select relevant content for these portlets (e.g. latest info about your fleet). Not an option to hide them completely right now.

    To free up the space you can use the 'full screen' mode, available on the Premium+ plans.

    Thank you

    Thats really bad buisness behaviour it takes up far to much space and it serves no purpose, you are trying to extract more money from the user

    we will look at other options/

    @Nicholas, you can now see that the map is bigger. Check also that the "latest photos" and "port calls"  sections are now displaying your fleet's information.

    Dear,

     Sorry but I find also that the height and the surface of the live map is small compared to the total area and height.

     I gif you an example for my screen.

    screen width : 36.5cm

    screen height : 22.8 cm

    screen surface : 832.20 cm²

    live map width on screen : 36.5cm

    live map height on screen : 15.5cm

    live map surface on screen : 565.75 cm²

     the live map takes only 67.98 percent of the height and the surface of the screen

    minus the menu banner closed 1.55 percent = 66.43 percent

    or minus the menu banner max. open 12.44 percent = 55.54 percent

    and minus the surface of a lot of things on the right side of the screen including a double “ type of maps” which is in the menu banner on the left side

    For people that use the live map to follow vessels and will use the tools bare at the top in the same time the surface from the live map becomes small...

    Marc,

    First they use members to beta fix it all, get it all correct and nicely done, then eventually they make undocumented changes so it's all screwed up again.  Hang it there.

     

    Katerina,

    I think NMarc would like to have a way to turn this OFF

    Dear,

     

    We do not ask to have a way to turn OFF “Latest photos – View all” and “Port of call – View all” but to put these lower to increase the surface of the live map - thanks

    Agree! - regardless of the panels being removed when you maximize the map throughout the hole screen. MT really need to minimize the size of the panels and the "footer" info  panel. Taking up to much space from the map!

    Just noticed that the panels are smaller! Even if you populate them with "my fleet" Nice MT :-)

    Dear,

    Thank you for your comment.

    Our 'Latest Photos' and 'Port Calls' panels are part of our website Home Page and cannot be removed or turned off.
    However, you can choose to display your own fleet in those panels.

    As for viewing our Live Map in Full Screen, this option is available for users who have upgraded their account to most of our Plans.
    You can see this here:

    I hope this helps.
    Is there anything else I can help you with?
    Please don't hesitate to let me know.
    I will be glad to assist.

    Kind regards,
