    I'd like to create a multi-step form that's similar in function to the one in the hero section of Offerpad.com

    I noticed a tutorial at https://www.jotform.com/answers/212489-How-to-Create-Geolocation-or-Geo-Tagging-System-using-Google-Maps-JotForm but it's very old and the images are broken.

    the main thing is that it needs to be a multi-step form (according to my client) and when the user begins to enter their address, the field auropopulates like on https://www.offerpad.com/

    How can I do this?

    Thanks you very much!

    Hello,

    Thank you for your response.

    What I'm trying to do is what is very similar to the form that's at https://www.offerpad.com/ on the top of the homepage in the hero section. Once a user begins typing an address, my client wants a list of address suggestions to appear in a drop-down just like what you see on that homepage.

    After the user clicks the "go" or "submit" button, then the user will be taken to a normal multi-step form as per normal.

    Please visit https://www.offerpad.com/ and begin entering an address to see exactly what I'm talking about.

    Thank you!

    Unfortunately, JavaScript could not be embedded in the form as suggested in the other post.

    You could check for other options here:

    1. You can consider the Autocomplete widget which will be similar to the first page you have on the offerpad page.

    2. We have now many widgets that you can add to your form, like the Geolocation widget:

    Other location widgets that you can check:

    I hope these widgets would be helpful for your needs.

    Thanks.
