We can't wait to start creating more plugins for your Crowdmaps. Have a wish list?

  1. Hello,

    another great feature to add to the crowdmap/ushahidi would be the one to set an alert by zip code. To tell the truth I tried to do that for an Oakland zip code and it seems to work. The point is it is not a feature well documented and if you check the created alert in the admin panel you will not see the zip code of it: see the image below.
    The user has to receive the alert confirmation email with details regarding the zip code he set too!

    In my case I needed to set an alert for a found/lost crowdmap where when a user has set an alert for lost pet in his zip code area he has to receive every notifications on any reports in it (pet lost or found).
    I guess a plugin may be created to do tat or the crowdmap/ushahidi feature may be refined in zip code terms.

    Thank you.
