Given that Elvanto's mapping capabilities are limited at this point we are using batchgeo.com to generate maps that would help us in visualizing data. We would like to have the url of a person's detail available as an column in a people view. By doing this we can inport that url into batchgeo along with that persons address. When we create the map, then we can click on the url and it will take us directly to that person's Elvanto's detail (as long as we are signed in).
Thanks for the post.
If you use the 'Member ID' field, you can use this to generate the url. If you export the people view as an excel or CSV file, you can add a column with the formula =CONCATENATE(<baseURL>,<Column ID is in>)
The Base URL would be "https://<Your Church Domain>/admin/people/person/?id="
This will result in the URL of the persons profile which you can use in your software.
Regarding our mapping capabilities, we are wanting to expand on this, and any feedback regarding what you'd like to see would be incredibly helpful.
Hope this helps,
I have implemented the profile link succesfully to my map. I was thinking of doing the same thing with the profile picture. Is there a way to get the url similarly to the profile url?
Concerning mapping, here is the way we see it. The main questions we are asking ourselves are:
With reference to people that have some contact with the church:
We need some level of mapping with people that have contact with the church that would be simple for our people to use and that it would be within Elvanto so that we don't make it harder for the none savvy.
At this stage, the only way to get these URLs in bulk is to perform an API call to retrieve this data. Performing an API call will also allow you to pull the other information as well, and depending on your level of programming expertise, can be used to generate the CSV files including all the data you are wanting.
