A new page will appear titled Map Shape Generator. Similarly to the mapping functionality in Flexmls, you have a polygon tool on the right side of the map. Zoom in or out to the area where you want to draw your shape and click the polygon tool. Then click and drag to create the exact shape you need. When finished drawing your desired shape, double-click to stop the drawing process.

There are two things to consider when using My Map Shapes:

First, when making a shape, the smaller the area, the less data you will receive in a report. Second, My Map Shapes is a proactive step. It’s recommended you identify subdivisions, neighborhoods or other desired locations before running reports.
