Im building QB app for our plumbing company. We make use of google maps extensively for mapping and finding addresses. In South Africa, our addressing system does not always point us to the customers house, we therefore use Lat&Long co-ordinates to get our techs from 1 site to the next. Is there any way that we can incorporate a google maps widget in the home screen with the ability to "click" and action a new client address and Job.
I know QB already has built in functions to show various jobs (with their status) already, however this relies on the native google maps search engine to pull address location which is not accurate for us. Some assistance will be appreciated
"Another feature that you can do natively without coding, is to put the latitude in the Street 1 field and the longitude in the Street 2 field. This will populate the location on the Google Map.
Ensure no other data entered and Save"

View the source of the second link for the code. I am simply displaying the latitude and longitude on a map click but the script could solicit additional input from the user and if desired to create a new record with the given latitude and longitude.
If you need further help please feel free to contact me off-world using the information in my profile.
