Collect Mobile Map Form Viewer

The Map Form View feature allows users to manage forms using their locations on a map. This feature requires using a geography field and assigning it to the Map Field header (see the Add Forms and Fields article for more details).


By default, forms will display the records using the List View. The List View displays the form record assigned to the Header Field. To view the records in Map View, click the Map button (beside Reports) in the top right.


This will switch the view and display the records and header on the map using Pin locators to mark the locations where the records have been taken. To return to the List View, click the List button (beside Reports) in the top right.



Map Controls


In Map View, several buttons are available to help visualize the data markers:

Col-Mobile-Map_View-Basemap_Chooser_Icon – Change the map type (e.g., street, hybrid, satellite).

Col-Mobile_Login_See_Password – Zoom in to the local area containing all the records.

Col-Mobile-Map_View-ZoomOut_Icon – Zoom out to a regional overview containing the records.

Col-Mobile-Map_View-Forms_Icon – Shows all the forms that can be displayed in map view. Tap on a form to select or de-select the form for viewing. A check denotes the form currently set to view.

Col-Mobile-Map_View-Center_Icon – Displays the map center.

Col-Mobile-Map_View-Pin_Icon – Open a new record, within the form currently set/on, to enter field data/information.









Location Options in Map View


Users can select any location displayed on the Map View to modify records and perform actions.


When selecting a location from the Map View, a menu will be displayed allowing the user to select whether to Edit, Copy or Delete the record. If the form contains any subforms the menu will display a Subforms option. If any actions are setup on the form, an Action option will be available.

Edit – Opens the current record selected and allows the user to edit or enter fields values of that record.

Copy – Creates a copy of a specific record and opens the copied record.

Delete – Deletes the current record and associated subforms, if applicable.

Subforms – Opens the subforms section of the selected record, if subforms exist.

Actions – View and run action field options that have been setup within the template/form.



Perform Actions


Collect Mobile can run actions from the Map View. Actions include performing an API call of a service field, getting a mobile report, and using the action field type. Selecting the Action option will display a list of potential actions that can be performed.
