Working with Maps

Integration with MS MapPoint? Can it be done….?  From Act! Simply adding push pins to MapPoint as I add contacts...

I'm sure it could be done... if 10.02+ maybe use a Custom Entity to store 1:many MapPoint http links per contact.  Smiley Very Happy
 
Or, if you're ok with a 1:1 link, using the ACT! v7+ SDK you should be able to use a User Field to store the MapQuest link.
 
If you want to get more fancy maybe you could add a custom tab to the Contact Detail layout with a custom web control that processes a certain click event and adds the field value for you.  Just thinking out loud... obviously haven't tested this...

Re: Working with Maps

These guys had a MapPoint link for ACT! 6.0. Maybe ask them if it was ever updated?

I think it was actually written by http://www.esite-usa.com/ - so ask them also
