Detail Map Control for Dataset
User can add this control to any entity dataset or dashboard to visualize all of the records of the view, sub-grid or dashboard on a map. User can also click on the pushpins to highlight them. Highlighting multiple pushpins can help the users to perform various actions from the ribbon on all the highlighted records at once. Detail Map Control provides the user with the freedom of using Maplytics features right from the page without switching to any other screens. User can also perform the following Maplytics features within the Detail map control:
Visibility of Maplytics actions within the Detail map control will be dependent on the actions selected within the Security Template if any assigned to the logged-in user. Please refer to the Security Template section.

They can hover on the pushpins to view the details regarding the pushpin and click on the pushpins to open the respective tooltip card. Users can use right-click to open the contextual menu which allows taking certain actions on the respective pushpin. They can open the record, set the respective record’s location as origin, destination or a waypoint to a route.
