Release Notes

CRM Chart Maps 2.2

New Features in 2.2:
  • GeoLocation Caching. Reduces map loading time by saving coordinates to cache. My preliminary testing shows a significant improvement in loading performance with this feature turned on.
NOTE: This feature is disabled by default, and must be manually enabled. See below for instructions.

Fixes in 2.2.1:
  • Fixed address details missing in the infobox when record loaded from cache.

Known issues in 2.2.1
  • The Opportunity Heat Map is not created for new deployments. Existing deployments are not affected (Workaround is to install 2.1 first, then update to 2.2)
  • The Latitude and Longitude fields do not support Parent records
Both of these issues to be resolved in 2.2.2

Configuration Instructions:

To enable Location Caching, you must edit each chart configuration.
You will see a new option called "Enable Location Caching", set this value to Yes.
You must then also enter a value for the Latitude and Longitude fields.

If Latitude and Longitude values are filled in, and those values exist on the record, then the map will use those values instead of using the web service to find the coordinates. If these values exist, they will be used regardless of whether the caching is enabled or not. But only if caching is enabled will the values be updated for each record. Also the values are only updated if the original record does not contain a Latitude and Longitude. If any values already exist, they will not be updated.

This means that the first time a set of records is shown on the map with caching enabled, performance will be slightly slower. Because it has to find the coordinates and then update the original record. But every time it is loaded from then on, it will benefit from using the cached value.



Deployment Instructions:

If upgrading from 1.x, you must first copy or write down your Bing Maps key. It will be deleted!
Un-install the the old version, if you have the unmanaged solution you will need to manually delete each of the components
