Enabling Custom Objects 

Note: Maps supports geocoding and Mapping Custom objects. To geocode a custom object you need to enable the object in the Geocoder and define the address fields for that object. The steps to do this are outlined below.

 1. Click on the tab Geocodes. If you do not see this tab, it is not visible on your profile. See your system administrator in that case.
