Improve United States Map Card functionality
I just learned that the United States (50-state view) map card can also be used with FIPS and Zips to give ever more granular "zoomed" views. Previously, I had thought to drill-down, you had to switch to the US Counties view, and was very displeased with the 50-state gray-view of all states except the one you were filtered on.
But I've also learned that DOMO is very particular in this zoomed United States map view, requiring that the data-source field names be EXACTLY 'States', 'FIPS', and 'ZipCode' (including the upper/lower case naming). You cannot assign alias in the Label, you cannot create the renamed field using Beast Mode. Instead, if you already have a data source, you could create a duplicate DataFlow and rename there so that it appears in the card-builder as a data-source static field, non-manipulated.
This just seems a little bit restrictive, and overly nuanced functionality. I have 3 different geo markers in my dataset, and if the naming requirements are fixed, then that means I would need to maintain a separate dataset for each item i'd like to map, just so that each can have one distinct set of 'State', 'FIPS', and 'ZipCode' fields.
Thanks for considering enhancements to this card type.
