#2485 - Custom fields for address and statuses!

Closed General Question created by it12 Verified Purchase 5 years ago

Dear Sirs,

We have just installed your proximity search add-on and I have few question about it. Since we are using custom address fields and not built in ones, how do we apply those in proximity search, this goes for statuses too. So, we do not use primary address field and it's related zip coded, state and other, we are using custom created address fields for Contacts and other modules. For example, Lead Source field in Contacts is not in use in our instance, instead we have custom status field with drop down values that we would like to use as a filter.

Also, Is there a way to copy already mapped latt and long values directly into your database fields since we have more then 8000 records and why should we wait for Google 4 days to do it for us.

Thank you very much.

Best Regards,

Slaven.

    Dear Sirs,

    Another quick update, I copied all of the latitude and longitude data that I already had mapped in location provided by Contacts fields that were created with Proximity add-on. These fields are oepl_latitude and oepl_longitude.

    Tried with repair/rebuild, however, I'm still not able to see any record in search or map.

    Thanks for your interest in our plugin and we appreciate your suggestions to enhance our plugin to next level. We are working to implement your suggestion and will be releasing shortly.

    As far as free queries on Google Map is concern, Google provides 2500 free hits a day and hence we have defaulted settings is below 2500. You can update all the records in single go if you have paid Google API key. You just require to configure it to update all the records.

    Search result depends on various parameters and settings. We request you to increase the radius and make sure latitude and longitude information are updated in database.

    Please note that “oepl_latitude” and “oepl_longitude” fields are not updating on mass update action.

    Fill free to contact us in case of any information or help required from our side.

      Hello,

      Would it be to hard for your to check out the system. I have copied all of the latt and longitude values “oepl_latitude” and “oepl_longitude” that I had in the system already. I still don't have no records or map shown.

      I can send you login details of the test instance.

      Best Regards,

      Slaven.
