I have an app for tracking our clients as well as jobs, where our machine operators travels within a set geographic area (mainly farms) and has regular clients as well as clients who call up to have specific work done.
Clients each have an address which plots a pin on our map UX, which in turn can have “Jobs” assigned against the client.
Our Operations Manager will receive calls for jobs at any time, so needs to be able to enter a new client (and job) wherever he might be (he mostly will never be at the location). The problem I have is that there doesn’t seem to be a reliable way of accurately entering the address? Our current work around is to drop a pin on the map, which works fine when he knows exactly where it is, but if it’s a road he doesn’t know, this could take a lot of time and involve finding it on Google Maps so then he can try and get it in AppSheet.
I’m sure others have this issue? The best case for us is like Google, to enter the address and a set of options are presented, is this or will this be a function in AppSheet? When I first started creating the app, there were addresses presented in this way, but they didn’t seem to result in a correct pin. The photo below shows the function in a safety program we use.
I look forward to hearing some of your thoughts and knowledge on this.
