Map Setup on Collect Forms

The Map Setup feature works with a Geography field type to display and view form records in a map view, with pin locators, on the mobile device.


When editing a Form Template, click on the Map Setup button in the Form Setup section of the Template Designer page.


The Map Setup dialog will open.



Pin Locators


The Map Setup feature is used to set properties for how pin locations will be displayed on the map view in Collect Mobile. By default, the Map Setup dialog is selected to the formula display. To edit the Pin and Text formula colors, click inside the formula box to display the formula builder dialog. The formula colors can be easily changed by changing the Hex numeric color code values.


To edit the Pin and/or Text colors using a color selector box, select the top radio button to activate the Pin style drop-down menu. Select whether to change the pin color, the text color, or both. Click the appropriate color selector box. The colors can be easily changed by either entering a Hex numeric color code value or picking a color from the screen. Changes in color to the pin and text will be displayed at the bottom of the dialog.



Map Field


Below the pin color options is the Map Field selection, which allows the use of Geography field(s) to display pin locators on Collect Mobile. Click the Map Field selection to open a dialog displaying all Map Fields (Geography field types) from the current Template. Select the Map Field (Geography field) to be used for the Collect Mobile map display.



Note: The map field should be used in combination with the header field, as the header field will display the header/record(s) ID on the map along with the pin location marker. With no header, the map will only show pin location markers.
