  1. Toggle current weather on and off

    With our business we are constantly monitoring the weather. To be able to visually see certain account in certain regions and toggle the weather as you can with the traffic on and off would be awesome. Would need a live weather feed from Weather channel or some outside source.

    • 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.

      • combine / run multiple searches on map at once

        I have to run 8 separate searches (with "clear map on search" disabled) to get the picture I'm looking for.
        there should be a way to mark all these and run them at once.

        • See the data list without needing to scroll down the page

          When I map data, I see the map first and a list below. The list is great because it has all of the details, but it would be really nice to see the list of records inline with the Map so I don't have to scroll down. Even if it's not the entire table and just the name of the record, that'd be a big win.

          • Allow for maps to be externally embedded on company website

            One of our uses for Geopointe is as a store locator. We are always adding new stores to our company's public website whereas our private internal map is hosted by Geopointe based on custom fields. It would be really nice if we could embed the map of our accounts on our website so that it could be controlled from within salesforce instead of having to manage the map outside of salesforce. If there were an HTML embed code for each map data set collection allowing the map to be externally embedded that would be huge for us!!

            • Utilize multiple fields in marker creation

              We would like to use "Account Rating" and "YTD Sales" in determining the colors and shapes that our pins take on the map. Currently you can only leverage one field in creating data set markers ("Color by Field"). Would like the ability to define data set markers using multiple fields.

                Thanks, Kirk. We will review this. However, there is something you can implement right now and accomplish what you want and that’s to use Salesforce Formula Fields.

                For many things, we try not to reinvent what’s already in Salesforce and suggest you use the power of the Salesforce Platform to accomplish certain things and then point Geopointe to it. Oftentimes, it beats waiting for a vendor to implement something for you. :)

                I do see value in our app having this feature specifically, so I am marking it as Needs More Feedback to get others to chime in. We are open to building this so you don’t need to do all that I suggest below this.

                What I suggest for right now are two formula fields actually. The reason for this is that I’d see value in one of them for other purposes like Salesforce Reports. May as well get…

              • Optimize routes around set appointments, using time.

                Our salespeople usually have some set appointments during the day (maybe one at 10:00 am, another at 1:30 pm, etc...). Ideally, they would like to use Geopointe in the morning to identify additional accounts or leads nearby to "drop in", without a set time.

                Optimize routes should take into account the set times of the events, and optimize the other visits without moving the set times.

                We should be able to set a route "start time", a duration for each stop on the route, and then let Geopointe plan out the estimated time for each visit based on the travel…

                • Adding a route to a SF user's calendar

                  We would like the possibility for a user to affect a route to another user calendar in Salesforce. By specifying a day the whole route would be added to the user calendar with the time specified in the route.

                  • Calculate Total Mileage

                    Ability to calculate mileage based on Salesforce meetings/calendar. Export the route and mileage either daily/weekly etc. Big time saver for salespeople in the field that need to submit mileage type expenses.

                      • 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.

                          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.

                          • Allow for NAIC Code Prospect Search

                            Being able to use the latest search feature to find new prospects and locations via NAIC code would be invaluable to businesses that generate prospective customers based on their specific line of business. Integrating this with your advanced mapping tools would greatly increase the efficiency of on-the-go searches for nearby businesses.

                              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.

                              • 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.

                                • Add ability to color Geoshapes based on parameter

                                  It would be cool to have the ability to add Geoshapes from the library and than color those shapes based on the resulting records. For example, I might add a layer containing all counties in California, and than would want to color counties green when combined revenue exceeds 100K, yellow for 50-99K, etc.

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • Allow Reports as Filter sources for a DataSet

                                        Use the resulting records from a tabular report as the source for a dataset. Reports are already created for sales goals, call plans, etc. Using these as a dataset would make it easier to focus on the most important customers as "pre-defined" via reports.

                                        • Import shapefiles into Geopointe

                                          Many customers use programs like ArcGIS to create territory boundaries that may or may not lines up with government boundaries. Rather than having to redraw those in Geopointe, it would be nice to be able to see and interact with those on the map.
