    Automatically retrieve/display map after receiving submissions in Email

    Asked by jwelle on June 24, 2013 at 08:11 AM

    3.  ok

     

    1.   I am trying to get this form to work   http://www.solarbidnetwork.com/?page_id=70

     

     

    Basically i'm doing great with your great tools but what I want is upon submission  I want the output to generate a Satellite map at group level on the house.    Now i understand that we can go to the submissions review and manually do it and then forward the submission via email but I'd like it to happen automatically.   Also when I forward a submission the map images get messed up when I bring up the email    help!

    2.  How come when we generate pdfs there is no map on it  ...that would work two

    Why is the system telling me I can't forward submissions because I've reached a limit...what limite?

    Hi,

    To automatically retrieve/display map in Email after receiving submissions is currently not possible with us, but we can offer you a workaround to get the map.

    1. Instead of using the Address Field, retrieve your user/customers address/location by following the guide given on this thread: http://www.jotform.com/answers/229804-How-to-Add-a-Geo-Marker-Google-Maps-Marker-in-the-JotForm-Form.

    After that, you can then search the Location in Google Maps: http://maps.google.com

     

    Let us know if you need any further assistance.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Yes, the submissions display the map but there's no way you can do the same on your Email Notifications - that's it for now. The given workaround should work.

    I've made some example here: https://shots.jotform.com/welvin/pages/GeoMap.html. Submit your entry using a valid Email Address so you will see how I configure the Email Notification to retrieve the map. Be sure to Tap your Location on Map.

     

    Thanks

    Hi,

    You should be able to retrieve the map when you click on the tooltip after searching the GeoLocation on Google Map.

    1. Your user should point exactly their location to the map. Example:

    2. After you will receive the notification, click on the GeoLocation Link.

     

    3. It will bring you to Google Maps (maps.google.com) when the correct address:

    Unfortunately, this is the only process we have for now aside from the Maps in your Form Submissions Page. If you'd like this to be a feature, I suggest you to open a separate thread requesting such.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    There is no need for a search box. Once you have all the codes from the GeoLocation Guide provided, all your user's have to do is to "tap" the map to record and submit their location.

    If you want, I can do this to your form. Just please let us know your form URL.

    Thanks

    ok thanks I'm really trying for this:   https://www.energysage.com/market/solarpv/new/property_details/

     

    I'm thinking about going with jotform application and seeing if it could be integrated.

     

    Do you think it would be difficult to do?

    If I could get user submissions to generate a map I could generate a lot of accounts

    I think that if you follow the Google Maps Marker guide  you'll make it. Of course, you need to embed the full source code of your Jotform.

    Let us know if you need further assistance

    I like very much the GPS Location widget. But there is a problem for me.

    I would like that people could change map view to satellite. Is that possible?

     

    Thanks for your good work!
