Standard Address Fields Show Google Maps

Records with standard address fields now display a Google Maps image of the address. This saves users time by letting them see where their contacts or accounts are located, instead of having to locate addresses in a separate browser tab.

On a record, go to the detail page to see the Google Maps image on the address field. To generate a map image, an address must include the street and city fields and either the state, postal code, or the country. If an address field is missing any of the required information, a map won’t display.

Maps Image

The map image on the address is static, but clicking the map image opens Google Maps in a new browser tab.

Maps on standard address fields are enabled by default. To disable maps for your organization, from Setup in the full Salesforce site, click Customize | Maps and Locations | Settings and uncheck Enable Maps and Location Services.
