The Geo List View provides users with location (radius) based search functionality, while keeping their search results interactive and image friendly. By utilizing the Geo List View, you will be able to not only search by radius and location, but will also see a map with pins dropped on each search result record in its listed location and address. The Geo List View also allows users to maintain some of the core functionality of Enhanced List View, with record's corresponding images and action buttons displayed (as configured by staff user), along with a few additional information and title fields.


On the Geo List View tab in the Directory Builder, you will have the ability to update and make changes to the following: 

  1. Enable Geo-Location Display - This checkbox must be checked for users to have the ability to access Geo-Location View of their search results.

  2. Position Fields: These fields provide the ability to search and select the field names to display in the corresponding positions in the Enhanced List view. 

    1. Position 1 (Name) - The field selected in this position will be formatted as a heading when displayed in the Geo List View search results tabs.

    2. Position(s) 2-4 - The fields selected in these positions provide additional desired information when displayed in the Geo List View search results tabs.

  3. Show Label - These checkboxes (there is one next to every position or field) will control whether the field's label will appear in the Geo List View. For example, if the Show Label checkbox is checked next to the Account Name/Position 1 field, the user's results will display as "Account: Fonteva in the Enhanced List View." If checkbox is not checked, the user's results will simply display as "Fonteva".

  4. Results per Page - This field determines how many records will be viewable per page when viewing your search results. 

  5. Latitude - This field will determine what Latitude field the Geo-Location View will be referencing when dropping the appropriate pin and determining a result's location in a radius search.

  6. Longitude - This field will determine what Longitude field the Geo-Location View will be referencing when dropping the appropriate pin and determining a result's location in a radius search.

  7. Radius Value - This field will determine the radius values available in the Radius picklist. Multiple values can be included in this field and must be separated by commas. This picklist will be used in the front end to narrow down your search based on mile or kilometer increments. The front end user's device/browser must have location enabled to use this feature. The unit of measurement will be updated based on current location. The user will not be able to define the starting point for the search radius; the search will always be based on the location of the device being used to access the Directory.

  8. Enable Image - When this checkbox is checked, images will appear on your Geo List View search results. The Photo URL field on the Contact or Account is not a Directory field. It is hidden from all Contact and Account layouts, as it is a part of the Chatter API.

  9. Placeholder Image - The value in this field will serve as a default image in Geo List View search results for any record where the field value for the Image Field (see below) is null/blank. For Placeholder Images, this value can be a previously saved image file, exist in your Salesforce Media Library, or reference an Image URL (HTTPS req).

  10. Image Field - This field contains the field that will be referenced when displaying a record's image when in Geo List View. The record's field value will generally be a URL. The Photo URL field on the Contact or Account is not a Directory field. It is hidden from all Contact and Account layouts, as it is a part of the Chatter API.

  11. Enable Action Button - This checkbox must be checked for users to have access to action buttons when viewing their results in Geo List View. Action buttons are clickable buttons that will appear in the Geo List View, and will direct the user to a separate web page in a new tab.

  12. Action Button Field - This field contains the field and URL that a user will be directed to when clicking a record's action button in Geo List View. The record's field value will generally be a URL.

  13. Action Button Label - The value in this text field will be the text displayed inside of the action button when viewing search results in Geo List View (IE - Click Here).
