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".

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.

  1. Allow non-geopointe Admin users the ability to create folders

    Rather me the Admin creating folders for user, I would love it if my Sales reps could create their own folders to stay organized. I understand the modeling around folders work like Report folders in SF, but it be nice if my sales reps could share folders with one another. This would limit some of the administration around creating folders, sharing, etc.

  2. 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!!

  3. Show "Drive Time" as column in Mapped Data when running data set by Hours (Driving) or Minutes (Driving)

    I was looking for some of this functionality a couple weeks ago and was surprised it doesn't exist. I ran a data set within a set range of Hours (Driving). I was disappointing to see that the list of Mapped Data didn't include driving times to each location within the mapped data set the same way it shows Drive Distance. The purpose, in our case, would be to get a snapshot of the time spent commuting from a central dispatch location to each worksite.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Work with multi-currency monetary fields

    When working with Salesforce's multi-currency settings, the adjusted amount is not officially a field, just a returned value included with the field it's been applied to (such as the Opportunity Amount field). Unfortunately, Geopointe reads in the actual amount, not the adjusted amount, so any aggregated currency information is not correct. It would be great if the currency fields could tap into the multi-currency functionality so that the aggregates are an accurate representation of revenue and opportunity amount.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Search nearby an entered address

    One of the things we use Geopointe for is to advise end-users about the nearest resellers. This currently requires 2 steps: 1st enter the end-user address in "address and places" search, 2nd switch to the Dataset search to search for accounts "Nearby".
    It would be great to be able to do this in one flow, i.e. to have the possibility to search for an address on the Dataset search tab under the Nearby option.

  11. chatter on check in

    Ability for a user to @mention someone (i.e. their manager) in their check out post. This way their manager is quickly notified of how the meeting went. Avoids use of email.

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Add search capability to look up accounts and contacts from Salesforce directly from Geopointe

    It would be great to have a search option within Geopointe instead of having to search from Salesforce and clicking the "Map" button. It would also be a great addition if I could search for multiple records by name (also within geopointe) and see the pins on the map.

  16. Share routes with groups or roles.

    I need to share multiple routes with a group of people everyday and would be more efficient if we could share the route with a group or a role.

  17. Allow an admin to set a company's map default start position.

    Use Case: Internal users are assigned to a specific geography, and they work out of the same location. Would be nice to set their default starting position to either the US or their specific geography before they ever go to the map the first time.

  18. 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.

  19. Allow uncompleted shapes AKA lines to be drawn and saved on map.

    Ability to draw/save lines on map. This is helpful for storing depictions of linear assets (roads, railways, pipelines, etc) which are not by nature polygonal. It would be handy to be able to save a line in the shape field, similar to polygons. Perhaps the line would be completed by double clicking on the last vertex.

    This is possible to some extent today by creating a polygon which doubles back on itself precisely, such that a "zero width" polygon is form. For example, such a "line" polygon would have coordinates as follows: [[[Point a],[Point b],[Point c],[Point d],[Point e],[Point f],[Point g],[Point…

  20. 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.
