Edit a Map Object

To edit an existing Map Object, go to Geopointe Setup, then click on the Map Object tab. You'll see a list of your existing Map Objects there. Click Edit next to the Object needing a change.
A few things to consider when editing a Map object:
  • Map Object Configuration - Did you know we have multiple ways to store the geocoded data? The data can be stored directly on the parent record or on a separate record. If you are running out of storage space in your org, consider On Record geocoding. If you have sensitive triggers, workflows, and validation rules, you'll likely want Off Record geocoding. To switch from one to the other follow the instructions on the main Map Object document, but remember to click Edit next to your existing Map Object, instead of creating a new one.
  • Address Information LocationMost CommonLikely, you're coming to edit the Map Object because you need to change where the address fields are pointing to (maybe you need shipping address instead of billing address, or you're now using formula fields instead of the default fields). Make sure you click [change] next to all 5 addresses fields when making your edits, or [clear] next to fields you won't be using.
  • Custom Lat/Longs - If you're storing your own lat/longs already, we can use those! All you need to do is sync them up to the fields provided. This may have been overlooked when original created, or implemented after you signed up for Geopointe.
  • A SOQL filter - A SOQL filter helps eliminate storage concerns and simplify map results by limiting what records will show up on the map. If, after geocoding, you realized you have too much data, old dummy data, or irrelevant data to current business needs, they can filtered out here to improve performance. Learn more  about Creating SOQL Filters.

When you're done, click Save. Changes to the Map Object will take a few minutes to take affect. You can view batch job progress at the bottom of the Batch Jobs tab in Geopointe Setup
