Just spent a few hours checking out the google linked database facility.
Fantastic!   
We maintain a list of Recommended Medical Specialists for our members around the world.
I was easily able to modify the table entries to match our fields.
There are a couple of improvement that would greatly enhance usability of this feature:
  1. When deleting items from the database is it necessary  to maintain the sequence of ID numbers or could we resequence them on request?
  2. The ability to connect to Google Directions, when desired by the viewer.
  3. The ability to limit viewing on a column by column basis so that the moderators/owners could utilize fields for comments, etc we don't want members to be able to access.
  4. The ability to hide individual rows as needed from members
  5. One last limit - Abiliity to differentiate between owners and moderators on all viewing limits (e.g. the above items 2,3,4 and all other viewing/editing limits.)
We could get along without any of the above by keeping a duplicate database but that becomes onerous with large populations that change addresses fairly frequently.d

Hi
The ability to connect to Google Directions, when desired by the viewer.
I'd like to add a slight variation to this point to get some Google info displayed. A couple of screenshots from another similar system I use may help.

1 - An extract of the map with pin markers


2- An extract of the map with details from Google after clicking on a pin


Directions can be accessed from the info displayed on the left

Hi Mark,

are we likely to see movement on any of these suggestions anytime soon?

Making an address field on a database table a link that is passed to google maps would be a big help to start with.

Regards,
Andy

For address fields, there should already be a [Map] link that goes to Google Maps. Or are you talking about something else?

Thanks,
Mark

May I add to this?

I would dearly love a Print option.
I have to print several databases each month and it is quite a chore without the option to simply print from groups.io

Please consider !!

Thanks for all your hard work,
Kind regards,
Pamela

Mark,
The [Map] link shows up on Premium groups when you are in list mode
But it disappears in Map View

I find it simple to Export the Database(s) in CSV format and then print them from there so I can set the format as I like.

That may seem simple to you Bob but to me it is a huge chore.

What used to be a simple click of a button on Yahoo has turned into a several hours chore on Groups.io

Thanks anyway
Pamela

Can we also get the Map link to open in a new tab, just like the website link?

Just one more cosmetic request on Database.
Can we get  the Map mode to display each record in the same way as List mode does?
This is what the current Map mode looks like
