Here's a key Map Business Online Tip and Trick to mull over:
Filter Data on the Map - Where did my territories go? My map is all wrong now? I can't add a new territory? Nine out of ten times when we get calls or emails like this it is because the MBO user checked the Filter Data on the Map check box in the Data Window in the upper left corner just below the address bar. Users do this to view just one territory at a time or to visualize an isolated set of points on the map.
The phone rings, the boss yells, or maybe the President set a dumpster on fire. Whatever distraction occurs, from time to time we get interrupted and we forget that the last thing we did was filter data on the map in Map Business Online.
A quick way to check for this is in Map & Data. Hover over any data or map layer, as if to edit it. Click the Edit Gear in the window. In the Edit panel you will see a Filter Data on Map check box. If it's checked, that's your problem. Uncheck that box and move on with your life.
