Google Maps in CRM

leave a comment »


I wanted a quick way of viewing an Account’s location so I created a link to Google maps based on the postcode of the Account.

First of all, create an nvarchar/URL attribute called new_googlemaps, stick it somewhere on your Account form and then put the below javascript into the Account OnLoad event

crmForm.all.new_googlemaps.DataValue = “”+crmForm.all.address1_postalcode.DataValue;

It’s pretty basic but does exactly what I want. I’m going to look at embedding the actual map in an iframe when I get the chance

Edit: it turns out that Richard Knudson has covered embedding maps already on his site!
