  1. Enable printing of a mapped dataset

    We have many users who would like to print out a mapped dataset (without having to map a route and save to pdf, etc.). They use the print out as a reference while they work in other applications, etc. They'd like to be able to print right from the map and get something similar to the attached.

    • Place your own point inside of a custom shape and show the distance to all of the other data points.

      Place your own point inside of a custom shape and show the distance to all of the other data points.
      (Example) If I use the nearby search and you are next to a river, things that show up as close are actually very far away to get to on the other side. Just take more time to use.

      • CBSA: Geocoded Census Core Based Statistical Areas Codes and Titles

        Currently Geocode information includes parsed and standardized information, in addition to the geocoded information, such as Street(clean), City(clean), State/Province(clean),Postal Code(clean),Country(clean),County(clean).

        Are there plans to include Geocode information by address or lat/lon to include identifiers for Census Core Based Statistical Areas (CBSA) Codes and Titles (ie. "CBSA Code(Clean)", "CBSA Title(Clean)")?

        • Add capability to "save" a map

          It would be ideal to have a method for saving a map view. For example, if I zoom the map to my desired location, add a few data sets, and add some shapes, it would be great to capture that map state. That way I can open the map without having to search for my data sets, re-add desired shapes, etc.

          • color and icon by diferent fields

            I'd like to be able to display more information on the map at a glance. Setting pin color as a function of a criteria is great but I want my user to pay attention to a second criteria.

            Would it be possible for the icon to be set as a function of some other field, that way a user can get 2 different info by looking at only one pin.

            • Export formal reports - reporting feature.

              A formal reporting feature within Geopointe would be helpful. I'd like to take the data and map and be able to export it into a report that would be clean and easy to read for our reps out in the field.

              • Choose Calendar to Import to Route / Map

                New import calendar feature is nice but it only allows you to map our own calendar. We have a call center who schedules appointments for our providers. They need access to import the provider's calendars rather than their personal calendar (ideally, with the ability to overlay multiple calendars on the screen) so that they compare accounts in the area and appointment availability.

                Solution: add lookup field for user's to select which user's calendar to import.

                • Ability to save a specific search

                  Data Sets are great and very flexible, but I'd love to be able to save a detailed search. Perhaps I want to regularly search 50 miles around a specific address and color the pins by a certain field. I'd love to be able to bookmark that situation and run it rather than having to recreate it manually.

                  It's not difficult to recreate the search, but being able to save those very specific searches could be nice.

                  • Save a data set or shape "membership" to a Record

                    My Sales Reps would like a way to save their shapes and data set information to a record. For instance, if there are 20 Accounts in Shape #1, those 20 accounts would somehow be marked as being in that shape. This could allow reporting and account management by region/group. It could also make shapes available on the Mobile App.

                    It would be best if you could choose to mark the record as part of the shape so you wouldn't just have everything automatically push to the record. Similar to "Add all to campaign" but maybe you could pick certain shapes…

                    • Choose different marker sizes

                      I would like to be able to use smaller markers/pins on the map, especially when mapping larger data sets in smaller areas, or larger sets across the US

                      • Work with multi-currency monetary fields

                        When working with Salesforce's multi-currency settings, the adjusted amount is not officially a field, just a returned value included with the field it's been applied to (such as the Opportunity Amount field). Unfortunately, Geopointe reads in the actual amount, not the adjusted amount, so any aggregated currency information is not correct. It would be great if the currency fields could tap into the multi-currency functionality so that the aggregates are an accurate representation of revenue and opportunity amount.

                          • Geo Library Shapes using 3 digit zip/postal code

                            The Geo Shapes mapping feature is very useful and has a good deal of ways to define the shapes based on State, zip/postal code, etc. A noticeable downside is increased lag as the layers become more granular. This is especially problematic when creating large shapes based on full zip/postal code.

                            A great addition to the Geo Library Shapes would be the ability to create layers based on 3 digit zip/postal code (e.g. 928**). This provides a good level of granularity and reduces the complexity when creating larger shapes layers (e.g. Sales Territories/Regions).

                            • Creating Defined Territories with Colored Polygon Shaped Layers

                              I think it would be great if we can define territories based on specified colored polygon shaped layers that can be customized. For example, if I had a liaison in the LA area that had a defined territory based on the shape we define on the map, and not by zip code or something, it would help with visualization.

                                • Search nearby an entered address

                                  One of the things we use Geopointe for is to advise end-users about the nearest resellers. This currently requires 2 steps: 1st enter the end-user address in "address and places" search, 2nd switch to the Dataset search to search for accounts "Nearby".
                                  It would be great to be able to do this in one flow, i.e. to have the possibility to search for an address on the Dataset search tab under the Nearby option.

                                  • Is it possible for an superior to show which routes his team has for today on the same map.

                                    Is it possible for an superior to show which routes his team has for today on the same map. For example:

                                    Tijmen is the Senior accountmanager
                                    Bram and Rob are the Junior accountmanagers

                                    Tijmen would like to view what the planning is for today. On this moment he wants to see in the map his own route. But he would also like to add the routes of Bram and Rob. So he would know in which zone which accountmanager is available.

                                    He would see on the map thee routes, the route of himself, Bram and Rob. If it is possible…

                                    • Pick and choose which sub shapes I want as part of my territory

                                      Let’s say I have all county shapes showing in the State of North Carolina. I want to pick and choose which ones I want to keep on the shape. I'd like to go one by one and click remove when needed. Even a way to pick multiple counties at a time and/or remove multiple from map when needed.

                                      • Auto-load selected shapes when mapping a dataset

                                        There should be a way to associate Geoshapes with a specific data set. That way, an "accounts" dataset can automatically display the related sales territories. Currently, to view a dataset and a handful of related territories, multiple clicks are required to display each territory. Less sophisticated users would benefit greatly from seeing their data appear over the appropriate shapes on the map.

                                        • Provide a "Check-In" option that doesn't write the Comments to the Subject field.

                                          Our sales manager just noticed that his "Activity Reports" are no longer easy to read because of the way Geopointe codes the check-in?

                                          - The "Comments" are added to the end of the "Subject" field
                                          - This skews the Activity reports that are grouped by that "Subject" field because there are now "too many" unique subjects?

                                          What do you recommend as a fix for this?
                                          - Is there a way to not have the comments saved/appended to the Subject field?
                                          - Is there a way to "dynamically bucket" the subject in a report?
