    When I try to edit a submission, the fields of the Google address widget are empty. Is there a way to recall the data that have been previously entered?


    Thanks a lot,

    Hello Jérôme - The submission data should be visible in the form when you try to edit it. Here's an example: https://eu.jotform.com/edit/4830229724012470277

    I tried accessing the edit link you shared and was able to replicate the issue even with a cloned form.


    I am sending this now to our backend team for further checking. We will notify you here for updates.

    Apologies for this inconvenience.

    Thank you for your support. I had to change widget in the meantime. Places were no showing up (no airports, no hotels, no restaurants) which is a problem for a taxi company :) !!!

    I understand. I can see that you are now using the GeoComplete widget. I believe that works for a more detailed search of a location such as hotels and restos as per your requirement.

    Regarding the previous Autocompleted address widget, there is no update yet, unfortunately. But we'll keep you apprised here for updates.
