    Request: Geo Data Location

    Asked by AIFIB on August 12, 2013 at 02:45 PM

    Hi guys,

    equal to one question afterwards:

    Recently I
    saw in a web form (German address is unfortunately unknown to me that you could enter the zip code and select out a limited area code and then appeared equally confirm the correct phone code, including regions is pre-filled. This goes, I believe, but only with javascript. There were the two files referenced here: http://www.geonames.org/. This is about minimizing the error rate when filling a form, because later the data thus collected are mostly imported into a CRM system or similar, because who needs erroneous data!

    Could you implement such a thing with jotform?

    We do not have similar integration with the function you want, perhaps this workaround might help. You can use the following link appended with the ip tag {ip} on your form notification so it creates a clicklable link that would display all the IP details like Geolocation Information & Geolocation Map provided by whatismyipaddress.com


    Example Result: http://whatismyipaddress.com/ip/

    I hope this works for you. Regards!

    that was not my question, sorry! I want to exclude from the outset that the user will fill the data in the form incorrectly, especially the e-mail address, how do I do what I do?

    So basically, from the web given, the process are the following;

    1. You provide a key Location and or Zip Code Number

    2. You click search and then it opens up a few numbers of results

    3. You click one of the result and it will bring you to the preferred location

    4. On the map, you will click your location and that will recorded as the "Address" of the submitter.

    Am I right? Please let me know so I can note this and will forward to our developers as a Feature Request.

    We have a workaround for that by adding GEO Marker to the form. Here's the thread: http://www.jotform.com/answers/229804.
