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".

  1. Search by shape via API

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

    • 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.

        • Layers and Shape in Salesforce1

          The ability to use KML files or shapes in Salesforce1 would be very useful.

          For example, if a customer uses layers to distinguish neighborhoods, and they need their outside sales team to say within certain boundaries, it would be useful to see the boundaries of that area on the mobile device, that way they know if they've gone out of their area.

          • 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.

            • 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)")?

              • Auto-Select Records on the Map

                Hi guys! I have a suggestion for some new functionality that would be handy.

                It would be very helpful if you could automatically select a record on the map as a result of clicking the "Map" button on that record in SalesForce.

                In effect, if I'm looking at an Opportunity and I click the Map button, Geopointe would load up, center the map on that address, AND select it (The little red checkmark appears over the pinpoint).

                This would facilitate a use case like the following: The user wants to do a mass emailing to all Accounts within X miles…

                  Hey Joseph, is this a custom apex action? If so, inside the geopointe.ActionRequest object we pass to your execute method contains a map of URL parameters. In here you should be able to pull out the id value. This will be id of the record the Map button was selected from.

                • Include an option for map projections

                  Currently all data is displayed in an unprojected (lat/lon) format. This unprojected format works in small areas, but distorts over larger regions making the world look flat. As an ArcGIS user, It would be a great addition to see some of the more common map projections in Spatial Key. Just pick a few of the more common ones from a list like this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_map_projections

                  • Add Check In Option to reset What Location to Check In Location - Salesforce1

                    My company travels around the world, in locations that are often not available via geocoding or where the geocoding location is not accurate.

                    We would like the option on Check In to copy the checked in location to the current What location. This could be trigger by a check box (like the chatter post check box), by a distance from What Id threshold, or a more complex set of rules.

                    I would do this myself, but the code is locked.

                      Do you want this to happen all the time or on a case by case basis? If all the time you could write a trigger against our Check_In__c object to copy the values.

                    • Include Search Center in Export

                      Only the results of the search export to CSV. The record that you are searching from should also be included.
