A GoldMine user asks, "Can I easily access Google directions via GoldMine?"

To create a button in your taskbar which will give you a Google satellite view for your current contact:

First, open the Task Bar in Premium Edition by clicking on Customize from the top menu. (In GoldMine 7 & lower, the Task Bar is open by default on the left side of the screen.)

Right-Click within the TaskBar and choose Add New Item.

Change Item Type to Website and fill in the data as follows:

URL: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=

URL Data: <address1>>,+<zip>>&t=h

Click OK.
