  1. Interactive KMZ/KML Layer

    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

    • 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.

        • 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…

          • Adding a Custom Link to the Label on the Shape

            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.

            • Search by shape via API

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

                • Don't allow multiple clicks on "save" button

                  Currently when creating new accounts in Geopointe using the "Create Account" button, it is possible to click the "save" button multiple times and each click creates a new duplicate record. This is a big problem for our sales reps working with slower internet connections who might not know if the first click worked if there is a delay, and for "click-happy" reps who click multiple times if they don't get an instant response. The button should grey out after you click it or at least not create more records when you click it multiple times.

                  • 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.

                    • Schedule hotels:

                      Search itineraries across multiple days and identify the most central hotel; perhaps even linking to reservations page

                      • Creating a sub folders under the Shape folders

                        It would be great if we can have ability to create sub folders for the Shape folders. This will make us to organize the territories better.

                        • More "Smart-Mapping" Integration into Salesforce

                          Stepping back a bit from SF & Maps, it seems like Geopointe is not integrated enough "into" normal SF daily routines? such as:
                          > When working within Salesforce :
                          - adding a Map to an Account, Contact, Lead, Opportunity (how do I/end-user easily/quickly add a map to a layout?)
                          - adding a Map to a List-view (end-users need to be able to quickly/on-the-fly view all/filtered customers on a map)
                          - adding Map Export options (management needs to be able to quickly/on-the-fly export all/filtered customers to excel/kml/etc)

                          • Expose Active Filters via Merge Fields in Custom Actions

                            In the custom actions area, it allows you to expose merge fields to use as POST parameters for a VisualForce page. It would be great to be able to expose the active filter information such as data set(s) and or geographic shapes. What can be done with this information is creating custom actions that could log this information for auditing purposes in a separate object such as when you add campaign members, you would want an audit trail of the criteria used to pull that audience.

                            • Pick and choose which sub shapes I want as part of my territory

                              Let’s say I have all county shapes showing in the State of North Carolina. I want to pick and choose which ones I want to keep on the shape. I'd like to go one by one and click remove when needed. Even a way to pick multiple counties at a time and/or remove multiple from map when needed.

                              • Sort alphabetically with blanks last

                                It would be helpful if when sorting a column alphabetically the blank values would be at the bottom instead of the top. My accounts are ranked A, B, and C, but not all of them have a value in that field. When I sort A-->Z, all the blanks are at the top instead of the As. It's the same way in Salesforce for most column sorts, but it's annoying.

                                    • Multiple google search layers on Geopointe AND Mass create records

                                      We would like to see multiple layers of address & Places results(Google Search) on the map kind of like the clear map on search checkbox (e.g. show me Albertsons stores and Vons) It be nice to have something like a Clear map on search checkbox like the one used on the dataset. Once I have this data it be nice if I could 'Mass Create Records' on the map.

                                      Then mass create records.

                                        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.
