Is there a way to set a default zoom on a map report? Also, has anyone experienced a situation where the zoom via the mouse scroll no longer works?

If I go directly to google maps, the mouse scroll to zoom in and out works with no issues, but that is no longer working rom a map report within QB.  I've tried different browsers too.  I have just started noticing this issue.  As a result I would like to set a default zoom on my map report located on my home page.   This is because the current default is zoomed out way too far showing multiple continents and my data is all mapped within the US.  Otherwise the user has extra unnecessary steps.  First the user has to locate the zoom slider on the left side of the screen, then the user must adjust it and lastly the user has to grab the map or use the move arrows to find the area needed.  I’d like to make this less work for the user and default the zoom right where it needs to be. I'm looking for a native QB solution.  Any suggestions?  Thank you in advance.

Hey Tamara,

Thanks for reaching out! You could try putting a filter on the Map Report where Address: Country is equal to United States. If that still "zooms out" too far, you could add multiple filters to show just a certain region. For example, if you're located in New England, you would add filters where:

Address: State/Region is equal to: Maine

or

Address: State/Region is equal to New Hampshire


or

Address: State/Region is equal to Vermont


or

Address: State/Region is equal to Massachusetts


or

Address: State/Region is equal to Connecticut 


or

Address: State/Region is equal to Rhode Island




If you have any questions, please let me know.



Thanks!

That didn't work, but thank you for the suggestion.  My addresses include most of the United States including Hawaii, but not Alaska.  It is default zooming so wide that it is displaying portions of South America, Africa, Europe and Asia.
