Create a Geo-aware Single-select Picklist attribute
Create a geo-aware single-select picklist attribute to enable geo-targeting of users on the live and publisher maps without the need to import and define shape layers. Administrators create geo-aware single-select picklist attributes and define a specific geolocation by entering a physical address or location coordinates in the POINT(longitude/latitude) or latitude,longitude format. Operators can draw a custom shape on the map (or select a predefined shape) and target users that have selected that location in their user profile in the
BlackBerry AtHocmanagement system or Self Service.
Geo-aware single-select picklist attributes can be edited by end users or operators, found in advanced searches, and used as response options.
Bulk-clear for all users is available for geo-aware single-select picklist attributes.
