  1. State Specific

    While I can run a query showing activity in a certain state, for display purposes, it would be helpful if I can select that only that state show up on the map.

    • Auto-populate radial shape fields

      From a Customer — Use case: Have ~1,000 points that need a radial shape field of the same size. Would like to have the ability to auto-populate those when an account is geocoded.

      • Enable HTML Code for Website Mapping

        I use Geopointe for my pre-foreclosure data, and I like to share the maps with the world. I think it would be a great idea if you created code for users to add HMTL to their websites. If there is a way to export the data from Salesforce to a website, I think Geopointe could start bet other companies selling mapping software for website use.

        Thanks for all you do.

        • Centering of Map and ability of dragging center Map icon around

          It would be nice if after doing a radius search around an area using the center of map feature that we had the ability to move the center map icon around the map.

          That way we could quickly adjust where we exactly want the center of the map to be.

          • Allow Different Marker Colors for Route Locations

            I have created a data set that uses different colored markers for different types of opportunities. When I run a search, those various markers are displayed correctly. However, when I add them to a route and view the route (in the print PDF view), all the markers are the same color.

            Is there a way to show the different colored markers in the print PDF view? This would help our salespeople know which types of opportunities they are visiting.

            • Save accounts on map as a data set, not a route

              From Salesforce we can map a View from the Accounts tab and save it as a route. It would be very helpful to have the option to save that collection of accounts as a data set as well.

                • Prompt me to create task when Checking out

                  Often times my Sales reps will need to create a open task upon check-out. We would like the option for Geopointe to prompt users on wether they'd like a task to be created upon check-out.

                  • Add support for interactive legend when there are multiple pins at one location

                    Would be very useful to have the interactive legend functionality work when there are multiple pins at one location. Currently the feature only works when there is only one pin at a location.

                    • Would like the map to reflect what I search for in list view Search box.

                      After running a map search, I love how I can search the contents of all columns on the list view at the bottom of the Map. After running a search on the list view it will query the records that match my search. However, it does not reflect those records on the map. Would it be possible to add this interactive list view map search anytime soon?

                      Preferably on your next release coupled in with your Interactive map legend :)

                      • Remove the Limit Search

                        When working on getting the big picture for an area, it would be nice not to be limited to only 20. Working in a small area that may be ok. But being able to see all the coffee shops in a metro area would be much more helpful.

                        • Search nearby an entered address

                          One of the things we use Geopointe for is to advise end-users about the nearest resellers. This currently requires 2 steps: 1st enter the end-user address in "address and places" search, 2nd switch to the Dataset search to search for accounts "Nearby".
                          It would be great to be able to do this in one flow, i.e. to have the possibility to search for an address on the Dataset search tab under the Nearby option.

                          • Place your own point inside of a custom shape and show the distance to all of the other data points.

                            Place your own point inside of a custom shape and show the distance to all of the other data points.
                            (Example) If I use the nearby search and you are next to a river, things that show up as close are actually very far away to get to on the other side. Just take more time to use.

                            • Cross object fields returned in searches

                              I understand this would take a lot of configuration, but if I am filtering by cross object, accounts with opportunities stage = closed won, be able to have those related opportunities fields display in the search results. If an account had multiple opportunities that met the criteria list the account multiple times in the results.

                              • Import a csv or excel file with address to display on map to add to route (without adding

                                Import an excel or csv file with addresses to display on map so reps can use it for route planning or adding to route (without having to add to SF).

                                Our reps have their own competitor lists (that we do not always want to add to SF unless it is a closed sale) but they still want to display it on a map and be able to see how close to our customers they are near.

                                Currently some of our reps use BatchGeo for this function.

                                • Allow a String of Numbers to be Entered in the Filter Criteria.

                                  There are fields within Salesforce that contain a string of numbers yet I am unable to enter a string into the corresponding field in the GeoPointe app. Very frustrating as I have to add a new filter for each number. If anyone has a solution for this I'd love to hear it.

                                  • Cross Object Marker

                                    It would be fantastic if you would be able to use a cross
                                    object "Marker". Now that i've been able to figure out the opportunity
                                    role and how its connected to pull in opportunities associated to a contact visually - I'd love to be able to create markers for
                                    "Closed Won" and other stages that are associated to the opportunity
                                    not the Contact.

                                    For example:
                                    If I have a "Contact Role" on an Opportunity and have created a "Contact" Data Set, I would like to visually see different Opportunity stages as markers on the map.

                                    • The ability to use Assignment Plans for lead assignment rules.

                                      We allocate leads via the Salesforce lead assignment rules when they come in off of a web form.

                                      We would like to replace our current method of assigning them through a number of rules with the Assignment Plans functionality, but right now the process of geocoding and assigning doesn't handle the process quick enough to do so.

                                      • chatter on check in

                                        Ability for a user to @mention someone (i.e. their manager) in their check out post. This way their manager is quickly notified of how the meeting went. Avoids use of email.

                                        • Second set of pagination controls at bottom of Mapped Data section

                                          Place a second set of pagination controls at the bottom of the "Mapped Data" section of a map page.

                                          The Mapped Data section can have many entries, requiring the user to scroll well away from the existing controls at the top of the section. A second set of controls at the bottom would reduce user effort in such situations.
