"Pin Selected" event action for Map views

There are currently no event actions available for Map views…

how about a “Pin Selected” event action???

There are dozens of posts in the community, where people are looking for a way to “take some control” over the map view. Right now this involves:

  • Creating a slice for your map
  • Creating a map view for that slice
  • Creating a deck view for that slice
  • (and currently, due to a bug) Creating a detail view that you must manually mirror with the root tables detail view

That last one particularly sucks, because unless you wish the details shown between seeing a record from a map-starting-point vs. elsewhere, it’s literally just a duplication of effort.

Creating a deck view to take control over the deck view that’s shown when you select a map pin… not so bad - in fact being able to have the confidence of knowing that that view is only for that specific deck view is kinda nice.

But if we could simply take over the action that happens when someone selects a pin - adding in our own navigation deep-link, I think that’s what most people are really shooting for when they’re asking how to do things with the map views.

This obviously only applies to map views shown in a small enough display. I searched for a similar feature request, but surprizingly I couldn’t find one. Link to the original if I’m wrong.

As always, thanks for considering! (^_^)

I’d vote for this… but I’ve reached my limit of votes. :frowning_face:


Same to me :frowning:

I have votes because I ONLY vote for the important stuff…
And, what you’re really asking for here is the Map View to act like other views…
