I have also checked field level security and profile access.Everything is correct.Please Helpenter image description here


It'd recommend you to get familiar with Geolocation Custom Field Help Page. Unfortunately you cannot expose this field on a layout.

However, it's still possible to show its value by using a text formula field. For instance, if you want to expose Shipping Geolocation, the formula will look like this:

TEXT(ShippingLatitude) & ", " & TEXT(ShippingLongitude)

Not it's present in the layout editor:

Have in mind that Shipping Latitude and Longitude are part of Shipping Address compound field and the naming convention differs here. In a help link provided above you'll get the knowledge of how to refer to custom Geolocation fields.

Also, have in mind that to make use of standard Geolocation fields, you need to activate their updating upon Address change in Setup -> Data Integration Rules.

  • Thanks for Suggestion..!! So this is fact that we cannot expose standard geolocation fields on layout.? – Utkarsh Verma Apr 23 at 8:00
  • @UtkarshVerma - that's true, you cannot. I updated my answer however about enabling standard geolocation fields updating - it's not turned on by default. – Przemysław Tamoń Apr 23 at 8:07
  • I turned that on. Infact I am able to populate the Standard Shipping latitude and longitude on Account which I can see after quering. But sadly that field is not visible on Details page. – Utkarsh Verma Apr 23 at 10:36
  • @UtkarshVerma this field is editable in general but only via API actions / Apex etc. as you noticed. – Przemysław Tamoń Apr 23 at 11:51
