Create map with zip codes

Limited number of zip codes are currently supported for maps. We need a full set of zip codes in order to use the map functionality. Right now zip codes are showing as unrecognized location, even for major cities.

    We currently support 5 digit US Zip codes in the product provided that these boundaries have associated shapes. We are unable to map single point areas like PO boxes in the product today. These will be delivered in a future release as part of a larger map accuracy improvement initiative. Recomendded workaround for now, is to Map these locations as lat/long points.

    Something else we can try to improve accuracy is to qualify the zip code with country as this will help us significantly reduce ambiguities.

    Would it possible for us to learn more about the Zip codes that are currently not being rendered?
