Map loading optimisation

We have made some exciting improvements to the loading speed of our maps, especially for large maps!

 

The main thing we optimised is the way data are loaded:

  • Before: Load all 10,000 locations -> Load Google Map -> Show map to users

  • Now: Load Google Map -> Load 500 locations -> Show map to users (while loading remaining locations in the background)

 

This change helps to show your maps to your users ASAP, so your audience can start interacting with your map while the remaining locations are being loaded in the background. We expect this to be most impactful to big maps with >2K locations.

Zillow-like real estate template

We are excited to announce that we have just released a new premium Real Estate Template, designed based on the Zillow map.

Data sync optimisation

One of the biggest complaints we get is that once map has been created, if you add or remove data fields/columns, it won't work. For the last few weeks, we have been working on fixing this!

We are excited to announce that we have just released a new feature that allows you to re-configure the data fields for your map without needing to re-import your entire map from scratch and lose all your configurations.

 

This new feature cover the following use case scenarios:
1. You've added a new column in your data source (e.g., google sheets), and would like to include it in your map.
2. You'd like to change an existing column into a different type. Ex., you'd like to change a column "website url" to be a "call-to-action" field instead of a "website" field.
3. Remove an existing column from your map to keep things organised.

For scenario 1, it is of course automatic whenever you resync your data. For Scenario 2 and 3, you can reconfigure your data columns/data here under the newly add sub-section "Re-configure your data fields".

New feature release

We have released 2 new feature releases over the weekend:

1. Call to action - new trigger setting

2. Map theme - ability to create your own custom base map

Call to action enhancement

Under "Calls-to-action", when you add a call to action to your map, you now have the option to set a call to action without having to create a button. You can set it so the action can be triggered by clicking anywhere in the list view. Given how it works, this setting would only work for the first CTA if you have multiple CTA. For the other CTA's you would need to assign CTA buttons

Map theme enhancement

Under Map theme, you can now create your own custom base map.

Subscription price increases

Almost exactly two years ago, we released the very first version of No Code Map App. Since then, we have been working with our early adopters and added features proven to be mission critical for many businesses.

We decided it is time we increase our subscription prices. Starting today, Pro plan will increase from $15 to $24 per month, Business plan will increase from $39 to $49 per month and Company tier will increase from $99 to $149. We have a long list of exciting new features and upgrades planned for 2024. So please stay tuned!

Slack community channel now live!

As our customer base continue to grow, we have decided to set up a Slack channel for all of our paying customers where they can ask questions and get product updates. We believe this would allow us to provide better customer service and tech support for our customers. 

December 18, 2023

Advanced analytics

With holidays coming up, we are going to make one last major release. We have been asked to show more data on map engagement, so here we are - the first phase of advanced analytics. Now you can see a number of different metrics on your dashboard under each map, including: total number of map views, number of pop-up opened, CTA clicks, map filters used, and map searches.

Multi-language translation

Many of our users operate in non-English speaking regions, so we often get asked if they could translate into other languages. We are super excited to announce that our multi-language translation feature is now available! 

 

This means you can show your map in 3 languages and have a switch on the map. Under 3. Customise, you can add up to 3 languages.

Auto data sync Phase 2

We have a couple of exciting new releases this week. 

1. Automatic data sync is now available for Google Sheets

Phase 2 of our Auto-data sync feature has been released, which means it is now also available for all Google Sheets database integration and all Company tier subscribers can also set the update frequency to daily and even hourly!

2. Set radius for your search bar

Under 3. Customise -> Search bar, You can now set radius for your search bar so even more control on how your research results are shown. 

September 12, 2023

Automatic real-time data sync 

We are super excited to announce that automatic data sync is here! This is one of our most highly anticipated and requested features.

 

We will be releasing this feature in phases:

  • Phase 1 - You can set auto update frequency to Weekly, Bi-weekly or Every 4 weeks. This is now live on our platform and works for all Airtable and Webflow CMS users. Google Sheets will be available soon too. 

  • Phase 2 - You will be able to set update frequency to Daily or Hourly. This enhanced update frequency will be a part of our new Company tier pricing plan. 

How it works

 

In 2. Data section, you will now see a step 2. Simply select the frequency you prefer, and that is it, your map will be automatically updated.

Choose which data field to map

To map your locations, we currently require two data fields: a Name field and an Address field. To decide which fields to use, we simply scan through your data fields and auto-detect which fields to use based on your data field names (or column headings).

 

This means you must have at least one of your data columns with the word "Name" in it and one with the word "Address" or "Location" in it. This can be inconvenient at times. So, to make it more flexible, we have now added the ability for you to choose which data field to use as the Name and Address.

Customise CTA link opening

We are excited to announce that you can now customise your CTA link opening behaviour. You can now choose to let your users open the link in a separate window or within your iframe (map).

Use your own Google Maps API key

One of the biggest issues we have had with pricing was the 1c map view charge. Now you can opt out of it!

Over the last month we had been working on a feature where you can enter your own Google Maps API key (instead of keeping using ours). Once you had added your own key, you won't need to pay for the 1c map view charges anymore. 

You can add your own Google Maps API key to your No Code Map App account (see detailed instructions here). Each key comes with a US$200 monthly credit from Google. This equates to more than 20,000 map views each month which should be enough for more than 99% of businesses. Creating a key is free and it only takes a couple of minutes (get your API key here).

Multiple calls-to-action

We have received a number of requests to allow multiple custom calls-to-action. We heard you and here it is!

As part of this enhancement, we have taken the call-to-action feature out of the "List view" section into its own section (see image below). You can add up to 2 custom calls-to-action if you have a Pro plan and up to 5 if you have a Business plan. You can also now add an icon to your call-to-action button.

Using image as marker

As we continue to improve our customisation capability, you can now use each location's cover image as its map marker. 

To set it up, under "Choose how you want to assign marker", simply choose the option "use image". Please make sure you have an "image link" column/field in your data.

KML file import

Over the last month, we have been working on a major feature - KML file import!

In many situations, in addition to being able to see all your locations, it is also quite important to be able to show boundaries and areas so your site visitors can see your locations relative to these areas.

KML Sample.PNG

To draw these boundaries and areas, you can now import KML files under Customise:

Enhanced CTA & more!

Over the last month, we have been quietly working on a bunch of new upgrades!

1. Enhanced call-to-action function

Previously to create a custom call-to-action button, you needed to have a "call-to-action" column header in your data, and that can be quite annoying if you are using your data to power other things and don't want to change the column headers just for map building. 

So we decided to make the call-to-action function more flexible - you don't need to have a "call-to-action" column header anymore. You can now choose any column from your data as your call-to-action, and a custom button will be added to each location (if applicable). 

Enhanced call-to-action .png

2. Image display customisation

A number of you have reached out asking us if you could resize the images. Now, you can! 

In the "Customisation" section, under both "List view" and "Pop up box" you will see buttons to resize images. 

Resize image.PNG

3. "No results" message display

We have added the ability for you to set your own "no search results" message. You can find this feature in the "Customisation" section, under "List view".

Alphabetical order on text filters

Over the last couple of weeks, we have implemented a number small optimisations requested by our power users. Chief among them is that all text map filters will now be automatically sorted in alphabetical order.

January 10, 2023

Image gallery & more!

We are super excited to announce our first release of the year!

1. Image Gallery

We understand many of you have multiple images for each location, so we have now added the function allow you to create an image gallery for each place. You can now include multiple image links for each place and use "," (comma) to separate. We will automatically create an image gallery like this:

Many people have requested for this template so we are super excited for you all to try it out!

You can now create property or hotel listings with price, rating, amenities, features and more! For more details on how it works, please check out this blog post

As a part of this roll-out, we have also introduced a new map filter - slider filters for price.
We can now handle price value in your databases by auto-detecting currency symbols such as "$" and "€" in your data fields. What this means is price related filters will show as slider filters as seen in the example below.

1. Show visitor current location

2. Customise image height in pop-up

Under "3. Customisation - pop-up box detail display", you can now adjust the height of your image display so your images won't feel "cut off" anymore.

More customisation features

Over the last few weeks, we have been focused on making our platform more robust. 

To start, we added the flexibility for you to customise the data type of each column at data import. We take an intelligent guess to the type of data you have, but you have the final say.

What it means is, you can decide if you want your data to show:

  1. as basic information or a map filter; and also

  2. what type of basic information (e.g. website link, the cover image, etc)

Column type customisation.PNG

In addition to greater customisation, we also made our published maps 20% lighter in size so it loads faster when viewing from a slower network. It's our continued effort to ensure your beautiful maps show up fast to your target audience.

We are super excited to announce two more new customisations:

1. Embed audio player

Now you can embed audio player for your audio file links. All you need to do is add a column in your database and make sure you have the keyword "audio" in the column heading.

2. Configure custom domain / slug URL for Webflow CMS

For all Webflow CMS users, you can now configure your own custom domain / slug URL as a part of our Webflow CMS integration. Once configured, it would automatically create a CTA in your map that takes users to each individual page you have set up in Webflow.

More customisation features

Following the successful rollout of our Airtable and Webflow CMS integrations, the biggest feedback we got was that users only want to show selected fields on their map (both in terms of map filters and the pop up box).

 

We are super excited to announce that now you can! 

 

We have just released two new customisation capabilities in "3. Customise" section:

  1. Map filter customisation

  2. Pop up box customisation

1. Map filter customisation

Previously, we automatically displayed all the non-basic information fields as filters (i.e. excluding name, address, website/URL, telephone). Now you will have complete control over which filters you would like to show on your map!

 

All you have to do is toggle on and off:

 

 

2. Pop up box customisation

 

Similarly to map filter display, previously it was all automatically created based on ALL the data columns in your database. Now you will also have control over which fields you would like to show in each pop up box.

 

All you have to do is toggle on and off:

1. Customise your own initial map zoom

2. Customise your own search bar 

In "3. Customise" section, you can now customise the "search bar" with 2 different types of location search. For more details on how it works, please refer to this blog post.

i).  Search based on a general geography (what we had before) plus ability to set country restrictions so you can restrict the search results to a specific country.

Search bar customisation.PNG

ii). Search based on your list of locations mapped - your site visitors would now be able to search your list of mapped locations using either full/partial "place name" or "location / address".

Search place by place name.PNG
Search place by address.PNG

3. Bug fixes

  • Some of you have encountered issues with auto map refresh when you tried to sync the latest data. This has been fixed. 

  • You can now do multi-line texts in cells for both Google Sheets & Airtable imports

  • Previously data import would fail if there is special " (double quotation) character. This has also been fixed. 

June 20, 2022

Airtable integration is here!

We are super excited to announce that Airtable integration is now live!

Our Airtable integration will be the second major third party integration on our platform. Now you can connect your Airtable data to your maps!

Product locator template

We are super excited to announce that we have released our Product locator template!

While Google Maps have made it easy for us to quickly find the nearest store, locating specific product or collection is still very tricky especially for those who also sell in partner locations or different types of businesses. This is particular true for Food & Beverage and Consumer & retailer. 

With our Product locator template, you can include many different filters to help your customers find the exact product they are after - e.g. business type (the type of businesses that carry your product), available product at each location, and purchasing options etc.

New features

Imgur.PNG

We rolled out a couple new things over the weekend:

1. We have further enhanced the way our map zoom works. Now, as your users zooms in and out of the map, the list of places on the left will also change to match what is shown on the map; and

2. Maps with filters will show filters open as default so there will be no risk of your users missing the awesome filter feature. 

Changes to image link upload

Due to Google drive image upload restrictions, some of you may have noticed issues with your Google drive image links. We apologise for the inconvenience. Rest assured, we have found an even easier alternative to Google drive image links - Imgur.com.

So now you can use 3 types of image links that would work:

  1. Public Image URL's - e.g. Getty images

  2. Airtable image links

  3. Imgur direct links - Upload your images to imgur.com and copy the "direct link" (IMPORTANT: only the "direct link" would work - see screenshot below)

April 6, 2022

Google Sheets integration

We are super excited to announce that we have completed our first major integration!

Previously, to import and update data, you would need to copy and paste the entire dataset into our builder. Now, you can import and update by simply linking it to one of your Google Sheets files!

For more details on how it works, please refer to this blog post.

Assign marker by group

We are super excited to announce that you can now assign marker by location group!

A number of our users asked us if we could allow them to assign different marker to different types of location. So we spent the last few days working on it and now it is live! 

How it works

1. Under "Marker style", you can select how you want to assign marker:

i)  use the same for all or

ii) assign marker by location group (e.g. "By industry")

2. These "location groups" are based on user imported dateset

3. For each location group, you can click on the marker to assign a specific marker for that group

Fully mobile responsive

We are super excited to announce that all of our maps are now fully mobile responsive!

Some of you may have noticed that we didn't do a changelog announcement last week. That is because we spent the last 2 weeks optimising our mobile responsiveness. 

We shipped out our software in just under 2 months and we decided to leave mobile responsiveness out until we know we have live users. As soon as we knew people have published their maps, we started working on our mobile responsiveness and it took us a solid 2 weeks. 

Now it is done, we hope you like look and feel!

February 14, 2022

1. Simply include a “Call-to-action link” column in your data with the redirect website URLs ​
