Constituent Map element setup

The Constituent Map element is used to create an interactive map based on household data located in Constituent Manager. This article will outline the data setup required for the Constituent Map element and the settings within the element itself.

Note: Before you begin, make sure that you have created a Google Maps API key and added it to your site information. Instructions for this process can be found in the article Create Google Maps API Key.

A video of the setup process is available below.

For this element to work correctly, the following conditions must be met.

  1. There must be constituents in the Student role.

  2. Student constituents must have “Shared Household Addresses.”

  3. Those addresses must be visible to members of the roles who will have access to the page.

    In other words, if you want parents to be able to see each others' phone numbers, then "phone number" data in Constituent Manager must be set to be visible to members of the Parent role. This is set in People > Constituent Manager > Settings > Constituent Roles. (See the Knowledge Base article Set directory profile data visibility for more information.)

  4. The element must be placed on an access-controlled page.

    The page where the Constituent Map element is placed must be accessible only by members of a specific role, or else the map element will request that the user log in. To change the Access Controls for a page, click the pink gear icon on the bottom nav bar and select "Access Control" from the top menu.

    Once you have created the access-controlled page, click "Add an Element" and select the Constituent Map element from the "Module" section of the element library.
