Map view type’s settings are similar to Tile view with one exception. Map view requires a column of the Location type to display pins on the map at specified position. Upon clicking the pin the data is displayed as the pop-up card structured the same way as the tile in the tile view.


To create a map view, select the Map option from the list of view types and click Next. The system will display the Map View form comprising the following sections:
