How can we improve Geopointe?

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.

    Our regional account members overlap territories. Having the ability to create a custom search would be very beneficial. They have to recreate this every time they want to create a new route. Definitely needed!!

    I just had a pair of users come ask me how to email a map (dataset + search radius/shape, maybe layers or places) to another user. They just assumed that you could copy the url because that works in most all of Salesforce.

    There's a bit of a work-around for this at http://support.arrowpointe.com/url-parameters/, which can work for a technical person sending one or two searches to endusers.
    But it would be much better if Geopointe would automatically create the url and have it available for copying. I would place it under the Save dropdown menu on the pins tab. Then on-technical people can send to each other and/or bookmark for themselves.

    Having this feature would take Geopointe to the next level for our users at Veolia. Being able to save a search and pull it up with a click or two would not only save time, but invites those SFA Users who are "less technical" to use Geopoint. Our admins want to "deliver" a variety of map searches with layers of pins by color to our users and these can get complicated to keep reproducing the same map. Please give this serious consideration. We would at least quadruple our Geopointe licenses with this functionality.
