Select bulk list of people in map view - not showing all results

Hello, I would like to pull up a list of certain people that are found on a map within a certain radius and send emails to them. Unfortunately, there is no way for me to select people from a list to bulk email through maps view. Also, I filtered the list down to 1000 people and then went to the map but it would only show me 200 of them and they have nothing do with where I am on the map. On mobile, it works perfectly according to my location but on desktop it does not work. I need desktop so I can select the list of people and send them all a message via email.

    Hi @Sam Karim !

    On the mobile app you are using the Nearby feature, which will indeed show you Contacts on a map relative to where you are physically in that moment (as long as those contacts have been assigned an address recognised by Google Maps) and will let you select a radius. This feature only exists for the mobile app, not the desktop app - that's why you can't find it when you're using something other than a smartphone or a tablet. Check out a list of all the features in the mobile app here.

    The Show on Map feature in the desktop app's list view follows the same principle: it can only show on the map addresses that are recognised by Google Maps (this is probably why only 200 of your 1000 contacts are shown on map). However, unfortunately it's not possible to narrow down a certain radius like you can with the Nearby feature on mobile. You can only zoom in or out of the map and it will adjust accordingly, but the list of contacts shown behind it won't change. I suggest you create a filter in the List View based in the state or zip codes that you want to include in your mailing list.

    I see how extracting a list of contacts from the map view would be useful and I've forwarded your feedback internally for consideration. Thank you for sharing your use case so clearly!

    I did create a list view and filtered it down to 350 people and it still would not handle it in the map view on desktop and still showed only 150 people or so vs 200 it showed initially.  IMO, that is a bug in the way it work since less people showed up than 200 which tells me it is not a map limit of 200. I think the problem could be solved by simply the data refreshing as I zoom in and out which I think was the intent of how it should work. (I believe that this did work at some point because I have used it in the past)

     The feature of me picking all people in a drawn out radius would be an added feature that would be awesome. 

     Thank you!

    Hey @Sam Karim !

    There's no limit on the number of addresses that you can see on the map, however when you're on the list view not all your people/organisations are loaded when there's hundreds or thousands of them. 

    This is done so that your database runs smoothly if you have way too many items, so Pipedrive loads you 100 items and you need to scroll down for it to load more. 

    When you get to the bottom of the list and then click on Show on map you should then be able to see all addresses that are recognised by Google Maps :) 

    Here's an example

    Just chiming in here that expanding these kinds of map features and making them also available on desktop would be amazing for us.
