Editing Marker Details

To add or edit the details shown on the Mini-map tab:

1.Click Edit in the lower right corner of the dialog box. The dialog box changes to edit view.

 
2.Edit the Name and Description fields directly as required. Open the drop-down beside Primary Category to choose a new primary category that the marker is a member of. Select the check box beside Is Zone to stop vehicle addresses snapping to the address of the marker pin when the vehicle is located within the borders of the marker polygon or circle. By default, when a vehicle is stopped at a marker, the location of the vehicle in lists, alerts, and reports is listed as being the location of this marker point rather than the actual location of the vehicle, which is somewhere within the boundaries of the marker. Select the check box to override this default and have lists, alerts, and reports give the actual location of the vehicle. This control is only visible when the pop-up is in Edit mode.
3.Click Save.
