I’ve been really happy to see the map view added to fibery. I wasn’t sure how we could share our feedback on suggested improvements, so please let me know if I should post this to the original request.
It seems the order in which the datasets are added determines how they are rendered (which seems logical). However, it seems there is no option at the moment to re-order the layers (in the same way we can elsewhere in fibery). This would be really helpful as the only way to re-order now is to delete a layer and all the other customizations.
I think clustering is a great option to have available but it would be nice if you could turn it off in certain cases. I find applying colour settings to a layer disables clustering, so I’ve been using that as a workaround.
More Symbology Options
I know the intent isn’t to use fibery as a full-fledge mapping tool, but it would be great if you had some more symbology options. The main things would be marker type, size, colour, opacity, etc. . I think this might need a bit of a rethink of the default “Colors” menu to allow for selection of the point marker
Auto Populate Colors
One of the things that I find really hard is setting up all the marker colours one by one when you are symbolizing using a category (single select field in fibery): For example:
So I was going to suggest providing an option to generate the colour rules based on options from a single-select options and colour settings. The user would select the field and press a button to generate the rules. The colours are automatically chosen based on the single select colour. The user then has the option to make changes to the rules, delete rules or add new ones. This would be super helpful for maps but I also think interesting for other views as well.
Collection map view within entities
It is really helpful to be able to add a map view to entities to visualize locations of the collection fields (e.g. a collection of stores managed by a franchisee). However, it seems the extents of the map view are static, i.e. while the collection is a dynamic list which will have items in various pockets of points, the map extent (and zoom level) don’t adjust for this. This is really confusing for users. It would be great if there was an option that could enable zoom to extents.
Having a button to “zoom to extents” would also be helpful in the map view.
Single location view
When users enter a location in the location field, there is no way for them to be able to visualize the location within the entity field. Map views require collections which makes it hard to verify that the location input is correct. It would be great if you could have a map widget that would visualize a particular location field within the entity view (either in the sidebar or the main area).
