Maplytics August 2017 Release incorporates new personalization options to allow users to personalize Maplytics as per their needs and preferences. Previously the Map Configuration was applied on the Organization Level, but with the new release, we have made this configuration available on a User Level and have added few more settings for further customization!

Users can now get the things that they use the most and define their configuration to set the home page for Maplytics functionalities (Detail Map, Heat Map). Users can also specify the default Map type, distance unit, Map Center, Heat Map type, etc.

Steps to configure personalization for Maplytics:

Navigate to Settings > Maplytics Configuration Details > here the user can find the records related to each user added in Team Maplytics. Select the required record and modify the setting as shown below;
