Admin Guide

The new AWY GoogleMaps section appears in the administration after installation. This section is designed for settings of the module. It is possible to make the general settings on the General Settings tab. You can make partial settings on the tab of each module of Accounts, Contacts, Leads and Prospects. The settings for the partial module have a higher priority than the general settings.

General Settings tab

The module uses the Google API. There are limits on daily queries. To increase the limit, you can create JavaScript and Geocoding API Key.

AWY GoogleMaps Geocoding

The module can ensure to browse addresses in the background automatically and assign GPS coordinates. This is used to accelerate displaying of the data on the map. For this purpose, the Google Map Geocoding scheduler was added when installing the Google maps module. This scheduler is inactive by default. You can activate it in the Schedulers section in SugarCRM administration.
