MBO Discussion - MapPoint Conversion Tool
We have just released a MapPoint map file conversion tool. Use this tool to convert a MapPoint territory or basic map files, saved as .ptm file extensions to an MBO map. Requirements:
- The tool is only available for Windows PC machine customers.
- And you'll also need to have a 2011 to 2013 version of MapPoint installed on your PC machine to enable the conversion
- MBO users must download the most recent release of MBO Desktop (free for annual subscribers). You'll find the MapPoint Conversion Tool item in the MBO Desktop menu.

MBO Tips & Tricks - Incrementally Adding Points to the Map
Besides importing a dataset of location records, MBO users can place points on the map incrementally, either by selecting the bottom option in the Draw Tool Button list, or by typing in an address in the address bar. In both cases, take the time to click the map tack/file button to save that location in a dataset.
MBO wants to help you organize every point you plot. It is likely when you plot a point you'll be creating a new dataset, but you could simply add that location to an existing dataset. When choosing to Create a new dataset simply choose New and name that dataset. Don't forget to name your location too. Your newly named dataset will now be listed as a layer in Manage Map &amo; Data. Here's a video!
