    Hello - I am hoping to get an understanding of how to ensure that proper addresses are entered into our forms.

    For example, if I head to my form, I can type in "j" for address, state, city, etc. and it will allow me to submit. I don't need to geographically validate their addresses, but I do want to ensure they're entering a full address. Is this something I can achieve within Jotform?

    Thank you.

    Hi there - Unfortunately, it isn't possible for the basis Address Field to have address validation. However, you may consider using Autocomplete address widget instead.


    It functions like this:


    Also, kindly note that the above widget requires Google Maps API key to make it work. Here's how-to-get-google-maps-api-key-for-jotform-mapping-widgets.

    Give it a try and let us know if you need further assistance.
