Geopointe Ideas

How can we improve Geopointe?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Admin to set default layer

    Allow the admin to set default layers for users. One less step for a user to do.

  2. Option to Modify label font styling and font size on Map

    Currently we have an option of adding labels to the shapes but if the shapes are too close the labels are overlapping and they can't be read so it will be great if there is a way we can modify the font size and style on the map to make it look much clear.

  4. Remove layers from Salesforce1

    With the new release you can add multiple data set layers within the Salesforce1 app. Unfortunately, I can't see how you can hide or remove an layer.

  5. Search by shape via API

    Searching by a Map Object's shape would be very useful. We need reports on contacts in someones "territory".

  6. More "Smart-Mapping" Integration into Salesforce

    Stepping back a bit from SF & Maps, it seems like Geopointe is not integrated enough "into" normal SF daily routines? such as:
    > When working within Salesforce :
    - adding a Map to an Account, Contact, Lead, Opportunity (how do I/end-user easily/quickly add a map to a layout?)
    - adding a Map to a List-view (end-users need to be able to quickly/on-the-fly view all/filtered customers on a map)
    - adding Map Export options (management needs to be able to quickly/on-the-fly export all/filtered customers to excel/kml/etc)

    > Having to "stop" and load the Geopointe app, then "think" thru data-sets &…

  7. Expose Active Filters via Merge Fields in Custom Actions

    In the custom actions area, it allows you to expose merge fields to use as POST parameters for a VisualForce page. It would be great to be able to expose the active filter information such as data set(s) and or geographic shapes. What can be done with this information is creating custom actions that could log this information for auditing purposes in a separate object such as when you add campaign members, you would want an audit trail of the criteria used to pull that audience.

  9. Aggregate Data by State/Province

    For marketing purposes, I would love to have a map that shows all the accounts we serve in each state/province in the US and Canada. It would be great if, instead of a single pin for each account, I could have a marker in each state labeled with the number of accounts served in that state. Even cooler would be if the markers were large for states with a lot of groups, and small for states with fewer groups.

  10. Sort alphabetically with blanks last

    It would be helpful if when sorting a column alphabetically the blank values would be at the bottom instead of the top. My accounts are ranked A, B, and C, but not all of them have a value in that field. When I sort A-->Z, all the blanks are at the top instead of the As. It's the same way in Salesforce for most column sorts, but it's annoying.

  11. Please return more results from each map view search. It helps to find more possible leads when reps are out or planning to go out..

  12. Pin logic

    Create the ability to add logic to the pins. For example create green pin markers for all the Accounts with a custom field attribute of A and have been called on in the Last 30 Days and create red pin markers for the Accounts with a custom field attribute of A and have been NOT been called on in the Last 30 Days.

    Currently I have to create 2 search queries for every data set. This is cumbersome and is creating folders with an over abundance of data set to sort through and manage.

  14. Coloring Address Lines

    We would love the ability to be able to color-code address lines so that the viewer can see immediately if there are any issues with one of the addresses.

    For example, we use the mapping to keep track of scheduled appointments. If an appointment is in danger of being missed due to the current time, it would be nice to see that on the list. See the attached screenshot.

  15. Save Data Sets to Campaign when Adding Campaign Members

    Geopointe is a great marketing tool for identifying opportunities and adding contacts and leads to campaigns. If you were to go back and review that campaign at a later point, there is no way of knowing what kind of data sets (filters) and shapes were used to create that campaign. There could be several audiences that could be pulled for this campaign with highly targeted criteria. You would either have the marketer manually enter the filtering criteria which is not effective or have to save a new data set for each audience segmentation then create a joint object to manually…

  16. I have over 400 accounts in the state of Iowa. It would be nice to have a feature that you can set to notify you if you are driving and you

    I have over 400 accounts in the state of Iowa. It would be nice to have a feature that you can set to notify you if you are driving and you are a certain distance from an account. You could set the distance in miles, and have the app push a notification that you are within (User set the number of miles) a certain number of miles. There are many times when I am deadheading to an account and I wonder if there is an account in a town that I am driving by that I could make a quick…

  18. Multiple google search layers on Geopointe AND Mass create records

    We would like to see multiple layers of address & Places results(Google Search) on the map kind of like the clear map on search checkbox (e.g. show me Albertsons stores and Vons) It be nice to have something like a Clear map on search checkbox like the one used on the dataset. Once I have this data it be nice if I could 'Mass Create Records' on the map.

    Then mass create records.

  19. Ability to easily search only visible shapes

    Can we add a checkbox on the data set tab under "clear map on search" that is "search only visible shapes"?

  20. Ability to set radius from the map when creating a circle shape.

    I like creating circle shapes around a particular location, but it would be even better if we could set the radius of the circle, like you can when making a shape field.
