    hi guys - urrrgggghhhhhhhhh am trying to put a Address Locator into my form, I have the API key, it was working, now it isn't!!!! It isn't as easy as it seems. When you get into Google Console - its a bloody mine field. Is there a VIDEO on how to do this please??

    I have setup billing too - I take it you need to pay for this privilege?


    THANKS

    You can find your Google Maps API Keys on the link below.

    https://console.developers.google.com/projectselector/apis/credentials

    Click Select and then Open.

    Or, from the screenshot that you have provided, click the Credentials link on the left sidebar.

    The Widget on your form seems to be working now.

    Hey Adrian - its not working. I have the API key - but why is it not working??
    Am I missing something in GOOGLE - there’s a HEAP there that I don’t understand. Do I not just need to copy the API?
    What about the KEY RESTRICTIONS? do u need to do this?

    THANKS

    I checked your form and I can see that the Address Map Locator widget is working. Here's a screenshot:

    You just need to copy the API key and paste it in the widget inside the Form Builder. You can leave the Restrictions to its default setting "None".

    Unfortunately, the screenshots you are trying to share is not showing in your post. Please go directly to this thread (https://www.jotform.com/answers/1628921) and use the Reply Editor to upload the screenshots. Here's a guide: How-to-Post-Screenshots-to-Our-Support-Forum.

    Hi there - still at a loss. Can you please have a look?  i wonder if I have settings wrong in GOOGLE. So frustrating. I've used the Maps JavaScript API - is that correct?

    Currently, the Widget is working in all browsers. Please make sure that you have allowed Location access in your browser.

    Hey JotFormers - my client doesn't like the Address Locator. SIGH!!! Is there anyway, that the customer can input an address into a form, and then have a LINK in the reply email, that takes you to a google map when you click on the link. Exactly like the form attached. See where it says mapit. Can this be done?1541729310Screen Shot 2018-11-09 at 3.07

    I made multiple tests and the only working solution I found is with the Geolocation widget. 

    You can check this thread - https://www.jotform.com/answers/1297910 

    Instead of adding the link to a Text field you can add it to the Email alerts.

    I made some additional tests and the same can be done with the GeoComplete widget as well. 

    Here is a new demo form - https://form.jotform.com/83121387017957

    Feel free to test it and clone it
