HOW TO USE
The dashlet can be deployed on the « Record » and « List » views of the Accounts, Contacts and Leads entities. It is added and placed as a standard Sugar dashlet through the dashboard manager.
1. RECORD VIEW
To display the map of a record you have to edit an existing dashboard or create a new one.
After, click on « Add a Sugar Dashlet » and select « SynoGeoloc ».,
Finally configure the address you want to display on the map. If you encounter any issue with the deploiment of the dashlet, please refresh your browser page.
If the address is correctly filled, the map will be displayed with a point on it for the address of current record.

On the « List » view, we can add a dashlet on the current dashboard or on a new one.
In the available dashlets, select « SynoGeoloc ».
Finally, configure the address you want to show on the map. If you encounter any issue with the deploiment of the dashlet, please refresh your browser page.
When you select a record the map is automatically updated and a point appears for the selected record. For each new selected element a new point is added on the map wich is then centered to include all points.
When unselecting elements the map is automatically updated with the points of addresses still selected.
