I think it would be great to get more functionality out of the maps.
- Make the markers conditionally responsive. For example, my current map is set up for business listings that open and close. It would be great to have conditional capabilities to say “when this maps markers business listing is closed” then “show this marker”…the show this marker would just simply be a image upload just like there already is
except this would be in the conditional area…it would be like how we have control over the conditionals of icons.
- More control over the styling of the marker caption. To be able to “skip a line” so that we could have a multiline marker caption that would read like:
This way we would be able to make use of the marker caption to provide more information in a visually appealing way.
Alternative to this would be to give the ability to set a groupfocus to have a reference element of a map marker, which I think would be trickier than adding formatting options to the existing marker caption.
- Enable a feature to allow a repeating group to get updated based off of the maps location.
I think giving maps a datasource of “search for all business whose geo location is within the boundaries of this map” and then to give a repeating group the ability to use a map as it’s datasource.
ie: group datasource = Map_business_listings list of businesses; this list of businesses would be updated as the user zooms and scrolls or drags the map to different locations.
The datasource for the map would use the maps center location and zoom level to search for all listings in the maps boundaries.
I understand having these types of features would be difficult to implement and that the changes that have taken place with map features over the past two years has already helped a lot, I believe these features would really benefit most of the bubble community
