  1. Currently, we can map events if they relate to accounts. It would be great if we could map events that relate to leads too.

  2. Don't Auto zoom out!

    When you click "edit" on a shape and are working on a small point it zooms out to the larger shape. If I am working on the zip level of a state wide shape then I have to re-zoom in to find my place. It would be nice if you edit the shape and it stays where you are working.

  3. Move address search box near other search functionality

    For some reason the new release separates the address search box from the core search/layering functionality- which makes no sense at all. It's not intuitive or convenient. Please put it back where it belongs at the top of the search/map/layering section!

  4. Some Routing Features That Would Help

    It would be awesome if we could have the following aspects to assist routing.

    1. Default time allowed to be set for your appointments eg 45 mins - user set and can be changed if longer or shorter.

    2. Points added to the route then with a default time and optimised would allow for travel time and accommodate the appointment length to leave to the next destination - could then have a predicted time that the next appointment would start after travel from the previous destination.

    3. When a route is built with this method, this information should be also…

  5. Delete nodes in polygon

    I would love to be able to edit a freehand multi-point polygon by deleting the nodes or points, similar to what you might accomplish with a vector drawing tool. I find myself simplifying shapes sometimes and it requires wrangling together a lot of points that are no longer needed. Would be a lot faster if I could just delete them, then a straight line is drawn between the points in between.

  6. 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).

  7. Sharing Route with Manager Link to Route

    Looking for a link that I can add to my email template that would take the manager straight to the route in Geopointe? This would be a one step process of being alerted that a route has been shared with them and then the manager is able to open the route from the email to review.

  9. Summarizing All Opportunities, each with an attached Shape, to count Post/Zip Code

    A shape can be associated with an Opportunity. That Shape may cover several post/zip codes. We'd like to be able to report on 100 Opportunities and show how many shapes have the same Postcode in common. Why? We want to show how many Opportunities are interested in buying land in the same Postcode. This request is similar to the Geopoint Idea - "Save a data set or shape "membership" to a Record" whereby a record falling within a shape is being counted.

  10. demographic data on GDP for manufacturing

    It would be nice to make some data sets for thermal graphing or mapped 'reporting" with GDP information. Manufacturing, in our case, to be specific.

  11. demographic data to show up on accounts (or export on the csv file in an additional data row)

    creating a way to get the demographic data to show up on accounts (or export on the csv file in an additional data row) I would think you guys are even more awesome.

    Example: We use the median age layer to see which of our accounts fall within areas of high median age. Right now we just eyeball it. If we could export the csv with the median age on every account, we could further improve our sales efforts.

  12. 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?

  13. Increase Link URL length.

    Increase Link URL length. We use the Link URL to pass values to automatically update fields on a Task object. Currently I cannot pass all the values due to the Link URL field character limit.

  14. Split sub shapes into individual shape records.

    Would it be possible to have a checkbox when creating a Shape with Subshapes to create individual shapes for each sub shape rather than one Shape?

    If I wanted to create an assignment Plan for MSA's today I would need to create each of those shapes manually.

  16. Interactive KMZ/KML Layer

    We would like to add a KMZ/KML layer to the map that is interactive just like the Shape tool. We have a dataset that we would like to filter onto the KMZ/KML layer. I can do this with the Shape tool but it would be useful for KMZ files. We use FEMA datasets that are in KMZ/KML format. Example: https://www.fema.gov/disaster/4278

  17. Modifying labels (size) without losing color-coding

    We are heavy users of Geopointe and Google Earth. The labels are HUGE and really clutter up the view. I can edit the label size in Google Earth but I have to hit “share style” for the folder before I can make any changes. The color coding gets changed to a single color as soon as I hit “share style”. I can either have giant labels or no color coding. I would like some ability to customize how labels are displayed when exporting to kml. The ability decrease the font size or even select no label at all would be…

  18. Adding a Custom Link to the Label on the Shape

    We have reps names on the map as labels and it would be great if we have an option where clicking on the label name would take user to the reps chatter profile page.

  19. Search for google places strictly along my route

    The way I envisioned this idea is to have a feature in Geopointe where you can search around a given route.

    So for example I am going from Location 1 to Location 2. I have a route planned in the system from Location 1 to Location 2. I have a 2-3 hour chunk of time between my appointment at Location 1 and my appointment at Location 2.

    I want to know if there are any LEADS that I can stop at on my way. This feature would be great if it gave us an approximate amount of time that it…

  20. Don't allow multiple clicks on "save" button

    Currently when creating new accounts in Geopointe using the "Create Account" button, it is possible to click the "save" button multiple times and each click creates a new duplicate record. This is a big problem for our sales reps working with slower internet connections who might not know if the first click worked if there is a delay, and for "click-happy" reps who click multiple times if they don't get an instant response. The button should grey out after you click it or at least not create more records when you click it multiple times.
