Understand Your Port List

Go to "My Resources" and click on "Port Lists".

Click on a vessel list of your choosing.

A new tab will open showing more information about your list.

  • The map on top of the screen shows where the ports in your list are in the world.

  • Under it is the name of the list and the creator.

  • Below the name of the list is the blue button menu.

    The blue buttons in the menu all have their purpose.

  • The next things appearing in the port list overview are information about who the creator of the list is, when the list was created when the list was last updated, and how many ports are on the list.

  • At the bottom of the screen, you can see all the ports added to your list.

  • Scroll down to view them all.

Edit Your Port List

Step 1

Click on the blue button that says "Edit".

Step 2

Remove the ports you do not want on your list anymore by clicking on the red garbage can on the right side of their name.

You can also change the name of the list by clicking on the name and typing in a new one.

Step 3

When you are happy with your changes, click "Save" and return to the port list overview by clicking on the arrow in the upper left corner.

Step 4

If you want to add new ports to your list, click on the "Add Ports" button.

We showed you how to do this in the "How to create a Port List" guide.

Step 5

In the menu with all the blue buttons, you can also click on "My Notes" to add notes or comments about your port list. We will explain this feature better in another guide.

Delete Your Port List

The last of the blue buttons in the menu says "Delete".

If you click on this you will delete your port list completely.

Change the Color of Your Port List

Step 1

Go to "My Resources" and click on "My Port Lists".

Notice the colored line next to all your port lists.

This color indicates what color the ports in that list will have when shown on your ShipAtlas map.

Step 2

If you want to change this color click on the "More" menu on the right side of the screen. Choose one of the 16 color options, when the change is done you will notice that the colored line next to the port list has changed to your new choice.

Notice that the "More" menu also presents different shortcuts to the other features explained in this guide, like for instance "Add Ports".
