The Google Maps integration displays up to five custom locations on a Google Map. It can be used to share office, event, prospect, or customer locations, along with important information about each. Selecting any of these locations then provides the ability to generate directions on how to get there, initially from the browser's current location, but this location (and travel method) can be changed in the provided directions window that pops up.
Navigation arrows are added at the top of the map when multiple locations are displayed. Clicking these arrows cycles between the various locations.
Contact your Customer Success Manager or email the Customer Success Team to add this integration to your digital workplace.
