In order to access a URL that will open a record-centered map, you need to set up a workflow that will save the Mapsly URL to a URL field in that record. To do it you need to go to Setup > Workflows and click to create a new workflow:

  1. Choose "Trigger" - Updated.

  2. Under "Object" choose the object for which you want to run this workflow, i.e. Contacts

  3. Under actions add a condition:
    record.mapsly_geo_status != oldRecord.mapsly_geo_status
    This is needed to ensure that this workflow is only triggered when record's processing status is updated which happens when you first import your records to Mapsly

  4. Create a new Update record action:

In the Update record action add the URL field that you want to update and in the Target value add:
https://app.mapsly.com?__object={{record.__objectApiName}}&__id={{record.id}}&__cmd=center,openMapPopup&__zoom=12

You can learn more about what each parameter means in this article.

You should end up with the following Update record action:

After the workflow runs, your new contacts will have the following Mapsly URL:
