Hello Map Fam.
Yeah, we know, it has been a while since our last update. Our team has been hard at work over the last few months streamlining things on the back-end - if all went to plan, you were not the wiser. At your leisure, track updates big and small here.
We have also spent time creating video tutorials that walk through common workflows like creating your first map, starting from excel files, editing and syncing maps, and using custom pin images.
From a capability perspective, we added delights to make your experience that much more streamlined.
- You can now create heat maps based on pin weight, as well as set icon size based on pin weight. Previously “the heat” on a heat map was based solely on pin count. A new video tutorial that walks you through it can be found here.
- Rather than being presented with our landing page when you log in, we are now routing you to a customized dashboard where you can sync, print, view, and see when each of your maps was last publicly viewed.
- You can now sign in with one click if your username is the same as your Gmail/G Suite address. One click sign-up has also been enabled via OAuth2, though since you’re not a new user you probably don’t care.
On a far less exciting note, turns out subscriptions to mapalist are considered taxable digital goods by “the man” per D.C. Code § 47-2001(d-1). As a result, we will be implementing a 6% sales tax starting this week. The incremental 6% will apply to all future charges/invoices issued.
Do let us know if there is a pain point you are experiencing that we need to focus on. We seek that squeaky wheel.
Stay healthy, and try to cook something different this weekend?
