Geopointe 2017 Recap: New Features You May Have Missed
2017 was an eventful year full of breaking news and memorable moments. Here at Geopointe HQ, things were moving faster than ever, as we introduced a wave of new features to enhance your mapping experience. With so much movement, we want to make sure you didn’t miss any of them!
To help you move the needle in 2018, here’s a quick breakdown of Geopointe’s most noteworthy new features released in 2017:
With this feature, you can optimize scheduled routes by factoring in all of your stops along the way. So, you have a more accurate idea of how long you’ll be on the road on days that are jam-packed with customer meetings.
Geopointe’s Check-in & Check-out feature has become a popular tool, so we made it easier by bringing it to your mobile phone through the Salesforce mobile app!
The ability to color your map markers based on a Salesforce field has been a popular feature, so we expanded upon it! Now you can customize both the color and the icon for markers on your map!
At last, this feature brings a more direct link between Salesforce reports and data sets. And, while this feature is still is in BETA and will not work with every report type, it’s a promising start!
We also released a new nearby search option: time-based (driving or walking). Now when you perform a Nearby Search, the drop-down menu includes miles, kilometers, minutes and hours.
The Shape Fields feature – previously only available in your desktop browser – allows you to connect a shape to a record. But, due to customer requests, we brought them to your mobile experience this year!
2017 brought a plethora of new features. But, few drew as much excitement as the groundbreaking release of Live Vehicle & Asset Tracking! This new feature gives field teams, service teams and fleet vehicles the ability to view the real-time location of vehicles and other valuable assets.
Vehicles with Live Vehicle & Asset Tracking can now create a Daily Summary of Vehicle Metrics. Available metrics include miles traveled, idle duration, number of harsh events, maximum speed and many more!
Companies with Live Vehicle & Asset Tracking can now see Real-time Vehicle Events directly from their Salesforce org! Events available include location, time, and other vehicle attributes. Each event can also initiate a Salesforce Workflow Rule.
Geopointe’s June ’16 Release introduced the ability to see Recent Layers in the Saved Layers from your desktop. Now, Geopointe users have the same functionality within the Salesforce mobile app.
