Embed a Map in a Board

Table of contents

You can embed a map in a board using the <embedmap> tag, making it even easier to view board records on the map. You can specify the map's position on the board view, its height and width, and more.

Note the following:

  • The view must include the <feature> tag in order to show records on an embedded map.

  • Adding the <embedmap> tag to a view disables the automatic board refresh function. In order to re-enable the function, you need to use the updatesection attribute.

  • When a map you are embedding has layers from multiple boards, the map shows only the current board's layers.

  • When a map is embedded in a Details view, the map shows only the detail for that specific record.
