What do I need to use Algor Maps?
Algor Maps is a web application, so it does not need to be installed. It can be used on a PC, Mac, tablet or iPad via any browser (Google Chrome, Safari, Edge, Mozilla etc.) and an Internet connection, without having to download anything to the device. To access the App and start creating your concept maps, simply create an account by clicking on the sign up button.

To use all the features of Algor Maps, you can purchase an annual or monthly subscription, i.e. a subscription to a package of services lasting 1 month or 1 year. You can choose between two subscription plans depending on your needs: Basic Plan, for those who want a complete experience at an affordable price. Pro Plan, for those who want no limits on learning.
For more information on the offer and to compare plans visit the pricing page.
How do you summarise texts and create maps automatically?
The 'Summary', 'Key Concepts' and 'Automatic Map' functions are based on innovative algorithms capable of processing texts automatically, developed by our team of experts in Artificial Intelligence. These features of Algor Maps should be seen as support tools for text analysis and do not replace human learning.
02. Parents and Students
I would like to let my son try Algor Maps, what should I do?
Your child will be able to create his/her own account by entering the required data during registration. At Algor we are very attentive to the protection of children's personal data according to the GDPR. If your child is under the age of 14, the consent of a parent/guardian will be required.
My child is a minor, can he sign up with Algor Maps?
I am a student and want to try Algor Maps, what should I do?
You have to create an account by clicking on the "sign up" button. You will receive a confirmation email and you will have to follow the link in the email to finish the registration (if you don't find it, look in your "Spam" or "Junk mail" folder). If you are under 14 years of age, after clicking on 'Sign up', a screen will appear where you can contact a parent (or guardian) to authorise you to use the app. When your parent has completed the authorisation you will receive an email at your address to activate your account permanently. If, on the other hand, you are at least 14 years old, you will not need any authorisation. Once your registration is complete, you can start using the App.
I made several maps from my PC, how can I view them from the tablet?
Algor Maps is an application compatible with any device, so it will be very easy. Access the App from your iPad or tablet, using the same credentials you used on your PC (username and password).

How does sharing work on Algor Maps?
With Algor you can customise your maps and documents with other users and share changes in real time.
How do I manage the sharing permissions of my material on Algor Maps?
When sharing maps and documents with friends and colleagues, it is possible to manage sharing permissions in 3 ways: 1) The 'Can see' recipient will only be able to see the shared item without being able to edit it directly. The only way to edit it will be to create a personal copy. 2) The 'Can edit' recipient will be able to see and edit the item. Changes will be accessible to all users who have access to the item. 3) The 'owns' recipient will be able to see, edit and change permissions on the shared item.
How can I share my material with other users?
You can share maps and documents with friends and colleagues in two ways: 1) Share by e-mail. Enter the email address of the recipient, click on '+' and then on 'Share'. You can now manage the permissions for each user to whom you have shared your material. The recipient will find the item you shared with them in the 'Shared with me' section. 2) Share via link. In this way you can copy a link and send it to the recipients: - Restricted access, only invited persons can access this item. - Anyone who has the link, anyone who surfs the Internet and has this link can access this item with the relevant permissions.
