Benefit from the functionalities of Google Maps within Planon

About Use Google Maps Functionality in Planon

This solution adds an extra user option to the action panel, enabling end users to launch Google Maps integration. This action opens a pop-up within Planon in which the selected properties are indicated by a location marker in Google Maps. This can be beneficial for viewing property locations and gaining insight into their characteristics. It also enables the calculation of routes and distances between location markers.

High-level description of functionality:

  • In order to gain insight into property locations, the user can open a graphical map, based on Google Maps, to view all properties or selected properties. Moving the mouse over a property location on the map opens a detail window containing more information about the property.
  • The user can filter which properties are displayed on the map by selecting the relevant boxes next to the property names. The user can also choose to hide the filter menu by not configuring any statuses or countries in the settings of this platform extension.
  • The user can view the route and directions between two properties shown on the map and can also calculate the distance between them, either by road or as the crow flies. To offer the full functionality of Google Maps such as for a route between two properties, a new Google Maps window is opened outside of the Planon environment.
