Maps are a very useful way to convey location details in your applications. Quick Base offers a native Map Report option which can be great for doing this, however, it does have some drawbacks.
Using the Google Maps API in a Code Page removes these limitations and allows you to create awesome maps with more detail and workflow power. Including but not limited to the following:
EXAMPLE: Custom map using Quick Base data
The map above combines data from an Employees table and a Projects table. Address fields are converted to lat/long values allowing the Quick Base records to become pins on the map. Project Managers can view locations and detailed information and assign Employees to Projects directly from the map interface. This is just one of the many ways custom maps can provide data visualization and drive workflow from a single interface.
Quick Base dashboards allow you to add Code Page widgets, meaning you can easily place a custom map on any user’s Home page. Check out our article on Adding Reports to Dashboards to learn how to get started.
