New Mapping Features

Hello everyone!

We are very excited to announce a set of new features we have just implemented for our mapping functionality. Our GPS breadcrumbs now have a new face:

The first thing that pops up is that we have some circular icons with numbers in them, this is what we call "clusters". The numbers represent how many breadcrumbs can be found underneath them.

When you zoom in, you will start seeing more breadcrumbs and clusters with smaller numbers:

Until you completely zoom in and get to see only breadcrumbs:

Something else that's new is that now you can add colors and images to the stick figures. The default color is black as shown here:

We can go to Manage Users and click on the employee's ID or alternatively, click on this new icon found in the map:

This will bring the user's profile, where you can add a profile picture by clicking on the "Choose File" button and selecting the desired picture. Make sure that you are using a square image (resolution 500px x 500px, for example), since using a vertical or horizontal image will not be displayed correctly:

To change the color of the stick figure, you need to click on the blank field next to the "Map Icon Colour" section:

Doing that will open the color picker, so select the desired color and click on OK:

The color will be updated in the previous screen. When you are happy with the changes, click on the "Update" button:

Now, when you look at the user in the map, you will see the stick figure with the selected color as well as the employee's picture between the "Center on map" button and the User Name, as well as when clicking on the stick figure, which will also show additional options to view logs, tasks and the breadcrumb trail:
