    Hi I designing a form where it will collect reports submitted by the public. I would like to insert a google map on which the public will select the location of the issue they are reporting. I was wondering which map widget would collect this. Also do I need to have a Google API Key to do this.

    Thanks for the help.

    Hello there,

    You can use the GPS location widget. Please note that having a Google MAP API Key is a requirement for the widget to work.
