Address autocomplete is a multiple-choice field that pulls a list of possible addresses into the form as a respondent starts to type in their address. Addresses are populated using Google Places API.
Address autocomplete will enter the respondent’s Street Address, City, Zip/Postal Code, State/Province and Country after they select their address from the results returned. This feature has been optimized for USA address formats, so international addresses may not work as expected.
To utilize address autocomplete you must have an Enterprise Cloud plan or above. Please contact our Sales team if you'd like to learn more about these plan types.
Set up Address Autocomplete
- Add a drop-down menu field to your form. This will be where the street address is enter
- Add four additional text input fields to your form for the City, State, Zip Code and Country.
- Click on the drop-down menu and select Choices from the options bar.
- Select Address Autocomplete
- Click Next.
- For each provided column, select the related field in your form. The details in the column will populate the selected field when an address is chosen by the respondent.
- Click Ok to save your field setup.
- Save your form.
You'll see that in the Form Builder, your drop-down menu field has been replaced with a text input field. Click on the View icon found on the left sidebar menu to view the live form and test your address autocomplete setup.
Begin by typing into the first address field. As you do, you'll see a list of possible addresses suggested. The list of available choices will be refined as you type. Click on one of the addresses to select it. This will populate the rest of the address into the mapped text fields.
Address autocomplete has the option of restricting values. You'll be able to toggle the switch to allow or not allow outside values from respondents. This setting will determine if a respondent can manually enter their address or if they have to select an address from the list of returned addresses.
Address Autocomplete Limits
