How to work with the Enhanced Map Element

for blogSnappii development team is constantly working on expanding its platform features. Recently there has been a huge enhancements1 release that covered a lot of new features such as share button, select contact button and universal forms. Moreover some options were greatly enhanced; first of all it concerns calculated fields which now offer far more opportunities than ever. You can read more about them in our User Manual and blog posts. Snappii cloud-based service was always a customer-oriented solution and took users’ feedback into account to enrich current flexibility and functionality.

The next awesome feature coming out is the Advanced Map.

The Advanced Map allows users to show all items from the list on a map. You must add latitude/longitude location column to the list. You have total control over the Map view now. Choose to:

  1. Text for each pin on a map
  2. Information your app users will see once the pin detail view is clicked
  3. Show all locations via list deciding what information your app users will see

The Advanced map feature works the same way as Advanced Lists – you need to upload a spreadsheet into the datasource dialog, then add Advanced Map tab or button, specify the views:


Annotation View – info that appears when user taps the pin

Detail View – info that appears when user taps Annotation View

Cell View – info that appears when user taps to view all locations as a list.
