Map View Overview
Map View is one of our favorite features at SmartSuite. This view can be used with any records containing at least one Address Field.
To get started, select "Map" in the view control to generate Map View.
The Report Toolbar Introduction outlines the primary controls for modifying views - many of which are available in Map View - and provides links to dive deeper into each control's functionality.
Map View is highly visual, and it presents records as pins on a map. The Map Settings control can customize elements on the map to enhance usability for specific use cases.
Select between five aesthetic views, Roadmap (default), Satellite, Hybrid, Silver, and Retro.
The Marker Style & Color options provide easy ways to make your records stand out.
Dial up or dial back elements on the map depending on your use case. Point of Interest, for example, may be highly relevant for residential real estate applications but less so for infrastructure construction projects.
Add a radius around record locations. This is useful for defining sales territories, delivery radiuses, hyper-local marketing campaigns, etc.
Clicking on a record "pin" on the Map view displays a card with the Record Title and Address. Expand Record opens the full record and clicking Get Directions engages Google Maps, in a new browser, to map a path to the record address from any starting location.
Note that If several addresses are close to each other, SmartSuite automatically aggregates those in one bigger pin with a number (see "3" below) so you can zoom them in with a simple click”. Clicking on the number will automatically zoom in to view the underlying records.
Similar to Calendar and Timeline views, Map View includes a Record Listing Panel to quickly find records on the map.
With the exception of the Fields to Display and Row / Card Size options, the full power of the Report Toolbar controls are available in Map View, including Sort, Filter, Group, Spotlight, and Find.
Note: These toolbar controls sort, filter, group, spotlight, and find records in the Record Listing Panel AND in the Map View.
