Adding Map Data

To add map data, click on the '+ Add location' button in the upper left hand corner of the tab. This opens the tool to add map data. Instructions for adding map data can be found here.
If there is a large number of map points to be uploaded, the bulk upload process can be used to upload them as a file rather than entering them one by one.

This will display a preview of the information that is about to be uploaded. If the preview looks accurate, press the 'Save' button.

Use this field to filter the map data in the account. It is possible to filter by icon type, icon color, and keyword. The keyword filter searched the name and description of the map data item.
At the bottom of the map data table, the number of map data entries per page can be adjusted to 10, 25, 50, 100, and 250 entries per page.

Share Map Data

This button will only appear if one user from your account with the Edit Locations permission is also listed on another account with the Edit Locations Permission.

Select this button to choose which accounts you want to share your map data information with. Once selected, the points and map data resources will become available to all devices on the other account. Any additions or adjustments made to the data will reflect on any accounts you are sharing with.
