SilkStart's Map Application allows you to visually display your company members on a map with location pins. Find your Map Application at yoursite.com/company/map and add this link to your navigation bar.
Which companies will show on the map?
Companies will appear on the map (indicated by a red location pin) if they have filled out the main Address fields on their profile - City, Province/State and Country are required to show on the map. In addition, a company will only show on the map if their privacy and membership settings allow them to appear in your directory. This means that if a company has set their privacy to "Private", they will not appear on the map even if they have filled out their address.
The same company profiles that appear in your regular directory will appear on the map, provided that they have a valid address filled out.
Who can access the company map?
Viewing permissions for your map application are set in your permissions grid under the Company section.
Why isn't a company displaying even if they've entered an address?
The location map is an integration with Google Maps, and Google Maps may be particular on the specificity of certain addresses. If a company is having difficulty displaying, we recommend being as explicit as possible in the address fields. For instance, entering United States in the country field, rather than USA or US.
