     Now, I know there is already a widget for that (Autocompleted Address) BUT it comes with

    • very laimited options and difficult to work around,
    • can not be restricted results by countrie(s) e.g: fr,nl,de (to restrict results to France, Netherlands and Germany),
    • won't allow Conditional logics 
    • can not be used for Distance & Duration Calculation


    most booking and reservation forms come with at least one address field, in our case, the form must have 2 address fields (pick up and drop off address).

    we tried hard to achieve a simple (Address auto complete) field that works with maps api, we even hired a freelancer for this.

    i'ts hard to understand how jotform developers came up with some "futures" or widgets which are useless for most of us, still developers took time to actually build them.

    when it comes to (Address auto complete), they just don't bother, despite that Jotform very much aware that this has been one of the most requested future, just read the reviews for Address auto complete widget, or search forum for address auto complete.


    I have been looking for an alternative to jotform to be able to have (Address auto complete), there some very good ones out there, like superforms and Gravity Forms, but it's just too much work to switch. 


    I really hope jotform developers can come up with a widget to make it possible to auto complete addresses or even better if they could do that within jotform (without need for a widget).


    Thank you

    Hello and thank you for your quick reply.

    I already tried all mapping widgets, actually there is only one similar widget (Geocomplete), which allows search only in UK, USA or WORLD.

    It does not fit our purpose.
