To edit your imported or existing orders using the Orders Map, first, go to “Orders” from the navigation menu.
Next, go to the Orders Map by clicking on the globe icon in the top right corner of the screen.
After that, use the calendar to display on the map all orders that are scheduled within the preferred time interval. Alternatively, you can use the search to find orders by their corresponding attributes (Alias, First Name, E-mail, etc.).
To edit a particular order, first, right-click on it and then select “Edit Order” from its menu. You can learn more about bulk editing multiple orders on this page.
In the “Edit Order” window, you can update the order’s address using the corresponding field. When you input a partial or incorrect address, the system automatically geocodes it and suggests one or multiple valid variants of the address.
After that, you can use the calendar to re-schedule the order for another date.
In the “Alias” field, you can edit the internal custom-defined name of the order. When creating a new alias for an order, make sure that it is easily searchable and identifiable.
After that, you can change the icon that represents the order on the map, as well as the order’s color.
In the “Location Details” tab, you can edit all available contact information of the prospect associated with the order using the corresponding fields. To edit the existing or add new custom data to the order, first, click on the “Edit Custom Data” button in the “Location Details” tab.
