To help you implement complex custom actions Mapsly allows embedding a popup iframe into a records map popup that opens when a user clicks on specially formatted field and loads a URL specified in this field, which may be unique per record. Using this approach, you can implement record-specific workflows or show complex data right on the map.

To implement it, create a custom field in your data source with the API name starting with mapslylink and fill it in records with value of the following format:

{"url": "link_address", "text": "link_text", "openMethod": "iframe", "width": 700, "height": 700}

This will instruct Mapsly to embed a link to a record's map popup and record view popup with the link text link_text which will bring up a 700x700 iFrame in a popup and will load the URL link_address into it.

In case you are using Google Sheets, Smartsheet, Keap or Zendesk Sell you need to add [ML] to the beginning of your field's title.

In case you are using Freshworks CRM all your custom fields start with cf_ by default. So your API name will look like this: cf_mapslylink

Creatio has a unique form of API names - Codes. All codes must start with Usr. So your code should look like this: UsrMapslylink

To open this link in a new browser tab instead of popup (for example, in case your target URL does not work in an iFrame), simply use the following format:

{"url": "link_address", "text": "link_text"}

Example #1: link to a Zoho Creator form

A complex Zoho Creator check-in form for an account that a sales rep uses to enter information about the account local of visit (including photos) and that is already prefilled with the account data:

To implement it, create a custom field with an API name mapslylink_checkin and fill it with the following value:

{"url": "https://zfrmz.com/q2B3ySR1IcUJNFMVQ7KL?record_id=238345238738475", "text": "Click here to check in", "openMethod": "iframe", "width": 700, "height": 700}

Example #2: a photo gallery

To implement it, create a custom field with an API name mapslylink_gallery and fill it with the following value:

{"url": "https://store-demo.pixieset.com/printshop/?pid=3905427703&id=0&h=MTQ3NTE4ODkxMQ", "text": "View Gallery", "openMethod": "iframe", "width": 700, "height": 700}
