  1. Export formal reports - reporting feature.

    A formal reporting feature within Geopointe would be helpful. I'd like to take the data and map and be able to export it into a report that would be clean and easy to read for our reps out in the field.

    • 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!!

        It would be nice to have the ability to somehow lookup a Salesforce record directly from the map so it could be added to a route

        • Creating Defined Territories with Colored Polygon Shaped Layers

          I think it would be great if we can define territories based on specified colored polygon shaped layers that can be customized. For example, if I had a liaison in the LA area that had a defined territory based on the shape we define on the map, and not by zip code or something, it would help with visualization.

          • 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.

            • Generate a 'trip list' in a specifically selected order (without directions), with account details (addresses), for GPS inputing on the fly

              An offshoot of the routes & directions option.

              Generate a 'trip list' in a specifically selected order (without directions), with account details (addresses), for GPS inputing on the fly once on the road.

              Sort of a "print this route to pdf" as a list format, before clicking "Get Route".

                Can you give more detail as to how you input into a GPS? The reason I ask is that there are file types (.gpx comes to mind) that many GPS devices support. How do you enter data? Does your GPS allow you to import files? Can you email it a file for importing?

              • Change a data set color on the fly

                I'd love to be able to go to the map legend and change the data set color within the legend or on the map.

                • Allow Spatialkey Join to go back into Salesforce Records

                  We use Spatialkey to match records to boundaries they're physically located in. We then use that information back in Salesforce for reporting. Right now, we have to export the data from SpatialKey and import it into Salesforce using the Data Loader. It would be great to have this happen automatically.

                  • 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.

                    • Google earth Integration would be nice..

                      We use the Google Earth app on our Desktops & iPhones to plot custom layers..
                      - Currently your Map options dropdown only lists: Map, Satellite, & Open Street, as well as Street View..
                      - Can Google Earth be added as an integrated option?

                          Currently for SpatialKey filter-only pod only "equals", "contains" and "begins with" are available for criteria. Would like to see not equal to and does not contain for additional criteria

                          • Grouping 2 sets of data together by location.

                            It would be great if you could report out each location from one data set and then group a second data set to the point in set one that it is closest to. So each entry from data set 1 could have mulitple entrys from data set 2 listed with it and give the distance from.

                            • Make some default shape files available

                              There are lots of shape files on the web, some better than others. It would be great if Geopointe had a curated list of shape files that we could just pick from and have them added to Analytics. For example, Timezones, US Congressional Districts, Countries, etc. Shapes that would be used by a wide variety of customers.

                              • Open Multiple Location Flags (or pin names) at the same time.

                                As all the pins appear, we naturally hover over each to see who they are. Then we click into the Pin to see the details flag. Back and Forth, Back and Forth... I'd love to be able to keep multiple flags open at the same time. Having the flag location be adjustable for printing maps would be great too.

                                • 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.

                                  • Make it easier to analyze check ins

                                    Our team uses Geopointe Mobile and our users are checking in. I am able to setup Check Ins as a Map Object now to view them on the map, but it seems like a more customized UI for this purpose could be created.
