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. Delete nodes in polygon

    I would love to be able to edit a freehand multi-point polygon by deleting the nodes or points, similar to what you might accomplish with a vector drawing tool. I find myself simplifying shapes sometimes and it requires wrangling together a lot of points that are no longer needed. Would be a lot faster if I could just delete them, then a straight line is drawn between the points in between.

    • Stand-Alone?

      Would love if you create a Stand-Alone version with a Mobile App. This was 100% of your clients are not required to use Salesforce CRM.

      I like GeoPoint more than Salesforce.

      Thanks!

      • Sharing Route with Manager Link to Route

        Looking for a link that I can add to my email template that would take the manager straight to the route in Geopointe? This would be a one step process of being alerted that a route has been shared with them and then the manager is able to open the route from the email to review.

        • Provide a "Check-In" option that doesn't write the Comments to the Subject field.

          Our sales manager just noticed that his "Activity Reports" are no longer easy to read because of the way Geopointe codes the check-in?

          - The "Comments" are added to the end of the "Subject" field
          - This skews the Activity reports that are grouped by that "Subject" field because there are now "too many" unique subjects?

          What do you recommend as a fix for this?
          - Is there a way to not have the comments saved/appended to the Subject field?
          - Is there a way to "dynamically bucket" the subject in a report?

            • demographic data to show up on accounts (or export on the csv file in an additional data row)

              creating a way to get the demographic data to show up on accounts (or export on the csv file in an additional data row) I would think you guys are even more awesome.

              Example: We use the median age layer to see which of our accounts fall within areas of high median age. Right now we just eyeball it. If we could export the csv with the median age on every account, we could further improve our sales efforts.

              • Summarizing All Opportunities, each with an attached Shape, to count Post/Zip Code

                A shape can be associated with an Opportunity. That Shape may cover several post/zip codes. We'd like to be able to report on 100 Opportunities and show how many shapes have the same Postcode in common. Why? We want to show how many Opportunities are interested in buying land in the same Postcode. This request is similar to the Geopoint Idea - "Save a data set or shape "membership" to a Record" whereby a record falling within a shape is being counted.

                • demographic data on GDP for manufacturing

                  It would be nice to make some data sets for thermal graphing or mapped 'reporting" with GDP information. Manufacturing, in our case, to be specific.

                  • Search for google places strictly along my route

                    The way I envisioned this idea is to have a feature in Geopointe where you can search around a given route.

                    So for example I am going from Location 1 to Location 2. I have a route planned in the system from Location 1 to Location 2. I have a 2-3 hour chunk of time between my appointment at Location 1 and my appointment at Location 2.

                    I want to know if there are any LEADS that I can stop at on my way. This feature would be great if it gave us an approximate amount of time that it…

                    • Increase Link URL length.

                      Increase Link URL length. We use the Link URL to pass values to automatically update fields on a Task object. Currently I cannot pass all the values due to the Link URL field character limit.

                        Allow the admin to set default layers for users. One less step for a user to do.

                        • Split sub shapes into individual shape records.

                          Would it be possible to have a checkbox when creating a Shape with Subshapes to create individual shapes for each sub shape rather than one Shape?

                          If I wanted to create an assignment Plan for MSA's today I would need to create each of those shapes manually.

                          • Option to Modify label font styling and font size on Map

                            Currently we have an option of adding labels to the shapes but if the shapes are too close the labels are overlapping and they can't be read so it will be great if there is a way we can modify the font size and style on the map to make it look much clear.

                                We would like to add a KMZ/KML layer to the map that is interactive just like the Shape tool. We have a dataset that we would like to filter onto the KMZ/KML layer. I can do this with the Shape tool but it would be useful for KMZ files. We use FEMA datasets that are in KMZ/KML format. Example: https://www.fema.gov/disaster/4278

                                  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.

                                    • Modifying labels (size) without losing color-coding

                                      We are heavy users of Geopointe and Google Earth. The labels are HUGE and really clutter up the view. I can edit the label size in Google Earth but I have to hit “share style” for the folder before I can make any changes. The color coding gets changed to a single color as soon as I hit “share style”. I can either have giant labels or no color coding. I would like some ability to customize how labels are displayed when exporting to kml. The ability decrease the font size or even select no label at all would be…

                                        We have reps names on the map as labels and it would be great if we have an option where clicking on the label name would take user to the reps chatter profile page.

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