User experience enhancements to the zip radius search for the Directories app

created

Earlier this month, we introduced a major update to the Directories location radius search so that it integrates directly with Salesforce geocoding service. With the latest update, we've made some front-end user experience enhancements that make searching for locations even easier while also implementing a couple of fixes.

These updates include the following:

  • Added the ability for an administrator to render the radius distance field as a drop down with predefined values that you can set in the administrator through a comma-separated list (e.g., "5, 10, 25, 50, 100").
  • Added the ability for an administrator to set a default radius distance value which applies to the radius distance field whether rendered as a text field or a drop down
  • Added the option for an administrator to set a default unit of measurement so "km" can be set as opposed to "mi"
  • Resolved an issue with the map not loading on the Record Detail view if a visitor has not searched using the radius option
  • Resolved the issue with the space in the non-U.S. postal codes not producing expected results

Happy Soapboxing!
