This is an archive related to a previous version of Esri Maps for SharePoint. If you need the current version go to http://doc.arcgis.com/en/maps-for-sharepoint/.
The Esri Maps Location field comes with several options for fixing and updating the location of an individual item. The Esri Maps Location field includes options for creating a new marker on the map, moving the existing marker, selecting from similar address matches, and typing an address in the search box.
The Esri Maps Location field shows the map location of the selected item and is automatically added to a list item when you run the Esri Maps Locate. You can also manually add the Esri Maps Location field to a list item and edit the geometry. Once the Esri Maps Location field has been added to a list item, you can fix or update the location of existing markers, or add a new marker if you are manually adding the Esri Maps Location field and have not run the Esri Maps Locate workflow.
If you click Yes, the map and location information in your item update with the new address information. If you click No, the marker stays in the location where placed, but the location information in your item is not changed. An example of where it may be useful to click No is if you want to leave the address as is but change the location of the marker to represent a specific location, such as a spot on a university campus or hospital.
This step does not apply to items created with workflows that use place-name lookups (for example, World Cities) and custom location types. The pin will update, but a prompt will not appear to update the address information, and the information will remain unchanged.
If the addresses found by the geocoding service are not correct, you can access similar matches and choose from any of those to update your item's location.
You can manually add the Esri Maps Location field to a list item instead of running the Locate workflow. When manually adding the Esri Maps Location field, you are prompted to specify fields for the Esri Maps Location field to use, and these can be an X, Y coordinate pair or a Shape field. Both point and polygon shapes are currently supported in the Shape field, with support for lines coming at a later release.
