  1. I have over 400 accounts in the state of Iowa. It would be nice to have a feature that you can set to notify you if you are driving and you

    I have over 400 accounts in the state of Iowa. It would be nice to have a feature that you can set to notify you if you are driving and you are a certain distance from an account. You could set the distance in miles, and have the app push a notification that you are within (User set the number of miles) a certain number of miles. There are many times when I am deadheading to an account and I wonder if there is an account in a town that I am driving by that I could make a quick…

    • Remove dots from an existing shape while editing

      Can we delete dots when editing shapes? When you have shapes that are very complicated/have many dots, and want to adjust the shape you have to move all of the existing dots without the ability to remove some of them if they are no longer necessary. So if you are going from a complicated/curvy line to a straight one, you'll have tons of dots to move all to a stright line.

      • Pin logic

        Create the ability to add logic to the pins. For example create green pin markers for all the Accounts with a custom field attribute of A and have been called on in the Last 30 Days and create red pin markers for the Accounts with a custom field attribute of A and have been NOT been called on in the Last 30 Days.

        Currently I have to create 2 search queries for every data set. This is cumbersome and is creating folders with an over abundance of data set to sort through and manage.

        • Coloring Address Lines

          We would love the ability to be able to color-code address lines so that the viewer can see immediately if there are any issues with one of the addresses.

          For example, we use the mapping to keep track of scheduled appointments. If an appointment is in danger of being missed due to the current time, it would be nice to see that on the list. See the attached screenshot.

          • See Assignment Area shape from URL parameter click

            I'd like the ability to see the shape(s) a record has been assigned to with the click of a button. It would be similar to the &id= parameter with a shape field attached, but would allow me to see the area(s) it's been assigned to.

            • Save a data set or shape "membership" to a Record

              My Sales Reps would like a way to save their shapes and data set information to a record. For instance, if there are 20 Accounts in Shape #1, those 20 accounts would somehow be marked as being in that shape. This could allow reporting and account management by region/group. It could also make shapes available on the Mobile App.

              It would be best if you could choose to mark the record as part of the shape so you wouldn't just have everything automatically push to the record. Similar to "Add all to campaign" but maybe you could pick certain shapes…

              • Save Data Sets to Campaign when Adding Campaign Members

                Geopointe is a great marketing tool for identifying opportunities and adding contacts and leads to campaigns. If you were to go back and review that campaign at a later point, there is no way of knowing what kind of data sets (filters) and shapes were used to create that campaign. There could be several audiences that could be pulled for this campaign with highly targeted criteria. You would either have the marketer manually enter the filtering criteria which is not effective or have to save a new data set for each audience segmentation then create a joint object to manually…

                • Need Map button on record in SF1

                  Right now, I use the publisher action in SF1 to mimic the map button on the record in Salesforce desktop version
                  http://help.arrowpointe.com/customer/portal/articles/2096553.

                  The problem with option is that I often lose my position and unable to navigate back to my record where I clicked on the map publisher action.

                  Would it be possible to add a map button in SF1 that will allow me seamlessly navigate back to my record?

                  • Ability to easily search only visible shapes

                    Can we add a checkbox on the data set tab under "clear map on search" that is "search only visible shapes"?

                    • Ability to set radius from the map when creating a circle shape.

                      I like creating circle shapes around a particular location, but it would be even better if we could set the radius of the circle, like you can when making a shape field.

                      • Edit shapes from the Library

                        It would be great if after saving a shape from the shape library you could edit it like you can with a drawn shape. For instance if a sales rep's territory is an entire state and a bit of one next to it (bordering metro area, large town near the border of a big state, etc)

                        • 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.

                                  • Show Specific Data Set Totals on Shapes

                                    It's great that when I have multiple searches on the map that I can see the total number of records inside of a shape. This works especially well when my searches are two different map object types (ex. Accounts vs Contacts). However, sometimes I want to compare the numbers of two data sets within a shape. It would be great if when viewing a shape I could see the total records but then also see the records broken out by data set, especially when running searches on the same map object (ex. Total = 9; Accounts (Customers) = 4; Accounts…

                                    • Allow you to set mappings by record type, not just by object.

                                      It would be very helpful to be able to map record types.

                                      My use case is that we have 2 different account record types, one has a billing address and the other has a shipping address. Because they are all Accounts I can only set the mapping to one set of addresses. You can't create a new address field in Salesforce so I can't set up a work around formula field that picks the right address to use.

                                      • Transport links to be included as an optional search filter

                                        We use Geopointe heavily when planning our seminar and event activity. Links to public transport need to be considered but always need to be planned outside of Geopointe.

                                        I would like to see an optional filter (check or uncheck to show/hide) that shows train/ tube (subway) station locations in order to give additional information to our attendees and plan events at the most accessible locations.

                                        • subtract shapes

                                          You can add multiple shapes to a map but can you add one shape and then subtract where it overlaps another shape?

                                          A use case would be distance from a point in multiple circles. Say you want from 50 miles away to 100 miles away from a fixed point. You would need to make a 100 mile radius circle, then a 50 mile radius circle and remove it from the 100 Mile one, creating a ring.

                                          Or if your territory was all Illinois except for Chicago, it would be great to put an Illinois shape on the map and subtract/cut…
