Map of Searches Added to SearchTracker Dashboard
This month we added a Map of Searches to the SearchTracker Dashboard. With the Map of Searches you can quickly see which states are driving the most searches. Roll over any state to see the total search count. Click any state to filter the Dashboard and display search data specific to the selected state. Even more SearchTracker enhancements are coming soon.

Product Locator Updates: Mapbox Maps, Search by City, New Styling Options
This update includes several new features that improve user experience and expand locator customization options.
Mapbox maps and the ability to search by city name have been automatically enabled in all locators. The other new features can be enabled using the new configuration settings described here. Please contact us if you need assistance.
Search by City Name or ZIP Code
Users can now search using their geolocation, ZIP code, or city name. The autocomplete dropdown makes searching faster and ensures location name accuracy.
Customize Map Styling With Mapbox Maps
Use Mapbox studio to develop a custom map style.
Display The Product List on the Initial Screen
You can now display the product list on the initial screen. Users are still required to enter a search location before selecting a product. On mobile, the product list will replace the background image.
Control Background Image Tint
You can now control the color and opacity of the tint applied to the background image.
Control the Background Color of Input Fields
You can now set the background color for the user location field and the product search bar to better coordinate with the backgroundColor and resultBackgroundColor.
Activate Automatic User Location Detection
You can now configure the locator to automatically request permission to access the user’s location. Users can still click the “use my location” target icon if this feature is disabled. Google Chrome requires websites to have valid SSL certificates for this feature to work.
Add A ‘Buy Online’ Button
When a user searches for a product in an area where it’s not available, you can now display a button with additional purchase options like “Buy Online.” The name of the button and the URL are customizable. This can be used with or without the “Notify Me” button. Learn more here.
Enable Persistent ‘Order Delivery’ buttons
The Order Delivery buttons are now persistent on the desktop version of the locator. Mobile users will only see the buttons on the initial screen given the limited space available.
