New Feature: Searchable Maps

12/19/2013 Posted by Brandon

We’re pleased to present a brand new view for the Knack interface: searchable maps!

This view is currently available for Knack users on the Pro plan or above, and is limited to North American addresses (international coming soon).

The map view works with Google Maps and is a great solution for store locators, dealer locators, contact searches, and more.

Map views can now be added for any object containing and address field, and include the following features:

  • Search by zip-code or city
  • Automatic directions link
  • Custom pin colors
  • Distance calculations
  • Optional starting point
  • Custom sizing for map and record list
Please let us know if you implement the map view or build your own searchable map locator or directory — we’d love to see it in action.

The Map view is in beta. As always, please get in touch with any suggestions or issues.

Demo
