Fix for the GeoMap limit?



As a feature request...

What if you can turn off the Geomaps that appear in the right column when you check a group or device, but allow them to be used in the Maps?

Most of the sites I am monitoring are in a single location. I do not need the Maps for those. I have 2 clients that have 50+ remote sites. These would be very useful.

If you eliminate the query that happens with every device viewed and limit it to the maps I build, that may allow them to appear.

Any thoughts?

To not show GeoMaps for a certain probe, group, or device, simply enter a minus sign (-) in the first line of the Location field in this object's settings (this setting can also be inherited from the Root group to all objects underneath.

If none of your objects in your configuration has a Location entry, GeoMaps won't be shown in the device tree view.
