SmartyStreets: Request for manual "certify the address is correct" option

    Hello Jotformers!

    We love Jotform, just saying :)

    We have several widgets in our forms that validate email addresses and physical addresses...both are AMAZING! and help save us hours due to bad data issues down the line. 

    I was forced to UNrequire these two very important fields so that failed validations don't prevent the user from marching to the submit button.

    Now the problem: If the data is not verified, it doesn't get submitted with the form...we get nothing in those fields. That causes a whole host of other issues, Zaps failing for example.


    Add a feature where these can be made required fields by adding a check box saying, I know this data to be correct, proceed. Then that " widget data"  or "smarty streets widget data" would have to become Jotform data and flow with the rest of the form data. 

    I hope this all makes sense.


    PS Screen shot below is from (sorry to use a government form to prove my point but sometimes, just sometimes they get it right :)

    Thank you for your idea.

    I have forwarded a feature request ticket regarding optional address verification on the SmartyStreets widget to our developers. Based on the SmartyStreets API I think it should be possible to implement. We will let you know if we have any updates on this.

    If you need a similar functionality for some other widget, please open a separate thread. This is required since we cannot attach multiple tickets to the same thread.
