3) Add the 'Map' content type to your sheet

Go to your Content sheet and add a new row. The type of the row should be Map. The map type has a few options. Check them out here.

4) Add markers and popups to your map

There are 2 ways to add markers to your map. Depending on your needs, you would favor one over the other.

1) Add markers via the "options" cell

If you only need a few markers and no popups when clicking a marker, this method is what you're after. Add markers by adding locations to the options cell of the row:

Added 3 markers in the options cell.

In this example, we added 3 markers. Simply add latitude,longitude pairs as options.

2) Add markers via a data records

If you are planning on displaying more pins, and you want them to have a popup when clicked, then this method is for you.

Follow these steps:

  1. Create a new sheet in your base and make sure it has these columns:
    • Latitude with field type number and decimal format (precision: 6). Contains the marker latitude.
    • Longitude with field type number and decimal format (precision: 6). Contains the marker longitude.
    • Title with field type single line text. Contains the title to display in the popup.
    • Description with field type long text. Contains the description to display in the popup.
    • Image with field type attachment. Contains an image to display in the popup.

    Only Latitude and Longitude columns are obligated.
