April showers bring May flowers, but Mapline’s latest updates are in full bloom now!

We’re here with a host of fresh, new features designed to help you work smarter and faster. That way, you can sit back and watch your business flourish like a springtime garden.


Segment your territory layers so you can color-code your map exactly how you’d like. For example, segment by territory manager, sales performance, or inventory stats. The possibilities are endless!

Plus, you can now remove map layers in bulk. This way, if you have obsolete layers, you can remove them even faster.

What a powerful way to filter your locations and get the exact insights you need!

Our API got a makeover this month! Now, you have even better visibility into the status of your dynamic data columns directly through the API.

Mapline user roles have been updated and simplified.

Here’s a rundown of the new names for user roles, and which permissions they have:

  • Administrator: Also referred to as an ‘Owner.’ Admins own all of the sub-accounts for the company. They have access to everything pertaining to the company account, limits, account settings, and sub-accounts.
  • Creator: Has all the same permissions as the Owner, except billing info.
  • Collaborator: Default user type. Collaborators can view Mapline datasets and visualizations, but cannot edit.
  • Billing Admin: Non-creator. Has access to billing informaiton for accounting purposes.

Any type of account can be given billing permissions. Just click the Billing Permissions drop-down menu.
