How do I Force Directions to a Specific Address?

This is a new feature as of version 2.4.8 of MapifyPro. It allows you to enter a specific address (using a Google address url) to provide directions to a specific location that may be different than that supplied by Google's geolocation coordinates. This is useful in the following instances:

-If your location does not have a physical address, IE if it is off road, on a mountain, etc. and you want to provide directions to the nearest hotel or other location.

-If Google is not providing adequate default directions by their coordinates.

To do so, you'll find this setting in the MapifyPro > Map Locations > [specific location]. Naviagte to the lower portion of that page, and you'll see the following field:

To Generate Address URL:

It's very easy, simply add the following URL before your address, and format it exactly as shown below. Google will handle the rest: Pennsylvania Ave SE, Washington, District of Columbia, 20003

Now, when a visitor clicks the directions button (either in the tooltip or in the pop-up) they will be taken to this address where they can then get directions. Yay!
