Layer Folders function just like Photoshop layers: they are transparent overlays on your map that you can toggle on and off.

But layers let you do so much more than that. Check it out!


Adjust how your Layer Folder appears in the sidebar of your map.

Disable the expand and collapse toggle if you want the folder to always appear expanded or collapsed in the sidebar.

Alternatively, disable the visibility toggle, to prevent this Layer Folder from getting turned off accidentally. The visibility toggle is the checkbox next to the layer folder in your sidebar. Once disabled, this checkbox can no longer be toggled on and off.

Next, set your desired zoom level, so your map will always zoom in to a specific level when you click on a pin.

This section gives you control over the pop-out bubbles that appear when you click or hover over the elements within your map Layer.

Determine when you want the pop-out bubbles to appear. Do they appear when you click or hover? Do you want to hide any fields that come up as blank?

These settings help you get the most use out of your data.


This section gives you control over the information in the pop-out bubbles.

Do you want to see technician names, customer names, or how many days until the location is due for a visit?

Or, maybe you want to hide any columns that are blank so you don’t see blank data when you reference a pop-out bubble. This option hides the data in the bubble itself, but not your dataset.

Or, rearrange data in the order you want to see in your bubbles. Delete any columns you don’t want to see, or click the blue + icon to add data back into your bubbles.

Here’s how pin bubbles appear on your map:
