    We use airtable for majority of our data housing but we like the forms you support but we want to be able to sync all the data to airtable from our submitted jotform forms. Most importantly when we use the address field widget when you start putting numbers in a bunch of addresses populate to auto populate the desired address, we want to be able to transfer that address to airtable but we are unable to for whatever reason. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hello,


    Are you talking about the following widget?

    Note that at this moment, it is not possible to map the different fields independently as they are wrapped inside the widget.

    I have tried it myself by mapping the address to one of my dummy bases in Airtable:

    1608329054_5fdd275e6f539_


    And the output that I get is pure text as shown below.

    I'll submit a feature request to our developers for them to implement that in the future.

    Hello,

    This is a follow-up message.

    While our developers are working on the issue, a workaround that you can do is to have each field of the Address field Autocomplete Address widget added separately in your form using the Short Text Entry Field.

    This way, all the fields will be considered as text and you can have them mapped properly to airtable.


    Hope this helps!
