Adding a Landmark

You can add a landmark by drawing a new one from the Landmarks tab or from a dopped pin on the map.

Draw a New Landmark

Drawing a landmark allows you to visually specify the borders on the map surface.

To draw a new landmark:

  1. From the menu, click Landmarks.
  2. Click Add Landmark.

A default circle appears on the center of the map. The circle has four sizing handles on the perimeter and one moving handle in the center.

  1. Enter a label for the landmark.
  2. Choose the shape of the landmark (Circle or Polygon):
  • Circle – Re-size the radius by dragging-and-dropping one of the four sizing handles on the perimeter. (Alternatively, you can enter a custom radius in feet, miles, meters, or kilometers.) Move the circle by dragging-and-dropping the moving node. (Alternatively, you can enter a custom Lat/Lng.)
  • Polygon – Click on the map to start drawing a polygon shape. Drag and drop the sizing handles as needed.
  1. Choose a Color.

Colors can help you categorize or group landmarks (e.g., set all customer sites to light orange).

  1. Click Save.

Create a Landmark from a Pin

A dropped pin marks a temporary location based on a visual reference or an address/lat/lon. Creating a landmark from a dropped pin allows you to reuse that location again.

To create a landmark from a pin:

  1. From the Map Toolbar, click Drop a Pin (0020).
  2. Drag-and-drop the pin to the location from which you want to create a landmark.
  3. Click Landmark.

A default circle appears on the center of the map. The circle has four sizing handles on the perimeter and one moving handle in the center.

  1. Enter a label for the landmark.
  2. Choose the shape of the landmark (Circle or Polygon):
  • Circle – Re-size the radius by dragging-and-dropping one of the four sizing handles on the perimeter. (Alternatively, you can enter a custom radius in feet, miles, meters, or kilometers.) Move the circle by dragging-and-dropping the moving node. (Alternatively, you can enter a custom Lat/Lng.)
  • Polygon – Click on the map to start drawing a polygon shape. Drag and drop the sizing handles as needed.
  1. Choose a Color.

Colors can help you categorize or group landmarks (e.g., set all customer sites to light orange).

  1. Click Save.

Create a Landmark from a Report

Any report that shows a location includes the ability to view an interactive map from the location and/or to add a landmark from the location.

To create a landmark from a report:

  1. Next to a Location line item on a report, click the plus icon (landmarkadd).

The Landmark Editor opens in a new browser tab. The location selected from the report is shown on the map based on the Latitude and Longitude coordinates. The default landmark shape is a circle.

  1. Add a Label for the landmark, and click Save.

The landmark is now available to use in relevant areas of the portal.

  1. Return to the report, and Refresh the browser tab (F5).

The name of the landmark replaces the physical address on any relevant location line items.
