The Map View

If you have a location field with addresses on Quabbly board, then you can convert your default board view to a map view.

With this view, you can display your records on Google Maps. You can achieve this without the need to integrate Google Map API - we have set that for you.

💡 Note: If you are in a logistics business or deal with real estate, this view will come in handy to check different addresses on  Google Map. 

Creating a Map View

Add a location field type to your board

To use the Map view, you need to have the location field type on your board. Normally, you should have the location field, if you work with templates like Real Estate or Logistics.

Click on the Dropdown view options

Tap on the "Views" dropdown and select "Map view". This displays a small pop-up asking you to select the field name with location field type then close.

The map then appears in this form with the blue balloons showing the different locations as you have them on your board.

Applying Filters

You can apply filters based on locations on the map view board. Just move the cursor over to filter to display the filter options. Tap on Add filters and create your conditions. Read this article to see how to filter on boards.

Change Location Field

You can switch between two location field types, in a case where you have more than one. Just move your cursor to "Change Location Button" at the top right hand of your board.

Click on the button which pops up a page where you select a new field name with location field type.

💡 Note: Viewing a board with Google requires you to have the location field type. You practically have nothing to view on the map without the field.
