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".

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Admin to set default layer

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

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. Search by shape via API

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

  18. 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.

  19. 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)

    > Having to "stop" and load the Geopointe app, then "think" thru data-sets &…
