To be able to use the area search in metasfresh, a geocoding service must first be set up, which transforms the human-readable addresses (consisting of street, house number, city, postal code, country) into geographical coordinates and displays them on a map.
Once geocoding has been set up, it is recommended to update the georeferenced data to ensure that all business partner locations that have been entered or imported so far will be included in the area search.
metasfresh currently offers interfaces for the following geocoding services:
|Only one geocoding service can be active at any one time!|
|If you have a large number of business partner entries and use the area search particularly frequently, we recommend increasing the Cache Capacity from 200 to about 500. This will allow you to cache your search strings and maintain search speed even when alternating between different locations during searches.|
No changes need to be made to the default settings.
