  1. Stylize Map to Black & White for better visibility of markers

    I'd like the ability to have the road-based map stylized in black and white for better visibility of the markers. I know that OpenMaps has this option, not sure if I've seen this in Google's native API, but I have seen this desaturation trick work:

    http://jsfiddle.net/alan1986/R5PXH/1/

    This really makes the markers "pop" but you do not lose the usefulness of the roads/boundaries.

    Love the idea. The consideration on our end is that Google has limitation on how many styled maps are loaded in a day. While I don’t see this as a huge use case, it’s what we have to consider before just implementing this.

  2. Need Full-screen View

    Our Sales managers keep defaulting to Google Earth so I asked them why?

    - #1) Full-screen - they like the large full screen in Earth and say Geopointe screen is too small/confined..

    - #2) Distant Measurement - they have to measure distances between selected points

    Currently I'm having to export a bunch of KML exports from Geopointe on a weekly basis, so they can view SF data in Earth..

  3. Sales Territory Realignment, Reassignment, and Optimization

    Create several additional features, but all striving towards similar objectives:

    1. Optimize the number and placement (territory boundaries) of sales associates according to account potential|prospects|accounts and constrained by workload|call time, travel time, and drivability, while simultaneously minimizing account disruption.

    2. Quickly lasso (or polygon select) accounts/markers on a map and provide summary information/analytics on those accounts.

    3. Apply what-if analysis/scenario-building/ad-hoc “digging” with respect to re-drawing territories. Concretely, plot accounts and prospects for associate A and B and then let me tag (or lasso select) a subset of accounts from associate A and see “what happens” as a result of assigning…

  5. Ability to show multiple routes on the same map

    It would be helpful to be able to show multiple routes on the same map, so for example if I wanted to share with someone where I'll be next week, I can share a map with the 5 routes showing.

  7. export to csv using multibytes

    I have noticed that when using the export to cvs button, it export the data without using multibytes, letter with accent (é,è,à,...) in names, streets, cities for international customers are replace by wierd characters. Could you please update this function as it would be a major improvment for us?

  8. Sorting chart results by record count

    It would be nice to be able to sort the charted results by record count; current default is alphabetical I believe. Sorting records high to low and low to high would be useful.

  9. External layers allow browse to hard drive

    I have KML files on my hard drive and don't want to use an external url for mapping. I would like the opportunity to browse for a KML file

  10. Partner with a data provider for lead gen

    I think you should partner with a 3rd party data provider (similar to Data.com) so you can map your existing records as well as search for new ones to easily build a pipeline.

  12. Add option do remove markers from the maps after they are added to the route.

    This would help when creating routes using big datasets (not allowing to add duplicates)

  13. 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.

  14. Generate a 'trip list' in a specifically selected order (without directions), with account details (addresses), for GPS inputing on the fly

    An offshoot of the routes & directions option.

    Generate a 'trip list' in a specifically selected order (without directions), with account details (addresses), for GPS inputing on the fly once on the road.

    Sort of a "print this route to pdf" as a list format, before clicking "Get Route".

    Can you give more detail as to how you input into a GPS? The reason I ask is that there are file types (.gpx comes to mind) that many GPS devices support. How do you enter data? Does your GPS allow you to import files? Can you email it a file for importing?

  15. 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.

  16. Change a data set color on the fly

    I'd love to be able to go to the map legend and change the data set color within the legend or on the map.

  17. 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.

  18. Grouping 2 sets of data together by location.

    It would be great if you could report out each location from one data set and then group a second data set to the point in set one that it is closest to. So each entry from data set 1 could have mulitple entrys from data set 2 listed with it and give the distance from.

  19. Google earth Integration would be nice..

    We use the Google Earth app on our Desktops & iPhones to plot custom layers..
    - Currently your Map options dropdown only lists: Map, Satellite, & Open Street, as well as Street View..
    - Can Google Earth be added as an integrated option?

  20. Allow Spatialkey Join to go back into Salesforce Records

    We use Spatialkey to match records to boundaries they're physically located in. We then use that information back in Salesforce for reporting. Right now, we have to export the data from SpatialKey and import it into Salesforce using the Data Loader. It would be great to have this happen automatically.
