Mapping location of members
For trade associations, it would be great for companies to be able to indicate where they are located, so everyone can search for local companies.
then to sort and map companies by their indicated locations, would be phenomenal.
Happy to announce that ‘Members location mapping’ feature is released for all our clients in version 6.11.
Now, with our new gadget, you can display an interactive map that shows where your members are located, and displays information about each member.
We highly recommend reading the setup instruction: https://gethelp.wildapricot.com/en/articles/1601

I support this idea!

Yes, I totally agree with this need of the map on the ORMTA website. Zip code search is super good news if that will happen. Thank you, and I look forward to hearing the result when done.
Hi, this would be very crucial for us, too. We want that members can search for each other in the directory. Distance is very important and a display on google maps would be perfect.

Our Province-wide Music Teacher's Association could really use a map that integrates directly with our often changing member directory. Many prospective students look for teachers who are close to their homes. This would be such a big help!

I have added a "county" field for searching to get around the zip/radius issue. It narrows it down quite a bit.

Google Maps in the Members Profile would be #1 on my wish list for improvement to the Wild Apricot platform. Being able to search for a teacher in our music teachers association by location would be such an asset!
This would be a huge asset to the music teachers association website that organizes over 1500 members' information. Many thanks for considering this option for future renderings of the Wild Apricot platform.

PLEASE add this. I have two groups of psychologists with separate accounts who use Wild Apricot for a directory in order to get new clients. Having a map on the member profile would be WONDERFUL.

Really need zip code radius search for members so the public can find the closet professional to them.
An option for the radius search the members are interested in is the ability to include members that have multiple locations. I have setup additional fields for the member to have a secondary office location in their profile. It would be great to be able to search on the secondary zip code and include that location in the search results if possible. It might be a little tricky to do that and display the results appropriately though.
Desperately need zip code search and distance. We publish our directory to the public and 90% of people want to search members closest to them. Currently you can enter only a City or Zip at the exclusion of all nearby zips or cities. VERY problematic.
Sue Beckwith commented
better member directory including areas of interest and a map; we are an association and we want our members to associate with each other.
Brenda French commented
Yes, our affiliate retail and service members would love to be "found" by consumers using ZIP code or radius from ZIP code. Right now it is a simple search.
Mary Martin commented
Add mapping software that is zip code driven so that when a member signs up we can have a visual of where in the nation they are located. We can color code them based on membership level so that Administrator can see a visual and we can provide our clients with a visual resource as well as excel file of new members. It would only make your DBMS ore robust.

This is really Iimportant for our organisation. I currently export our membership data into excel then upload the data to Batchgeo to produce a plotted map of members. We really need the map within wild apricot which plots members directly. Please!
YES PLEASE. We have been requesting this feature for 2 years!
Pin per member would be great for us. Would like the ability to select for only some member-types to appear, and/or color coded by member-type.
The main function we would like is the ability to show where we have received essays from, dynamically, as new members join (member-type: Author). We have submissions from around the world, and can do this via google maps & google spreadsheets, but would have to update manually.

Map Gadget to have capability to display locations of selected or all members
Carol Jones commented
We would love a way to post an interactive map of our city/region on our member directory, with red pins for each member showing the geographical area that member is in. Members could opt-in to be included. The public could click on a red pin in the area of town they live in, to be directed to that member's business website.
John Lutter commented
This would be extremely helpful to our organization. We have local clubs and retailers that we would like to present on a Google Map based on a saved search or membership level.
Sorry I was not clear I guess what I am wishing for is the ability to click on an address that would link me to Google maps or the like so I can locate the address better.
