    Hi

    We want to run postcode software in our forms so applicants can choose thier postcode then the address is selected automatically.

    How is this integrated?

     

    Regards

    I think you might be requesting this http://www.postcodeanywhere.co.uk/ as an integration? Please confirm or correct me.

    Have you looked at our existing widgets that can do this in a similar way already?

    Please see our various Location, Address, and Postal Widgets.

    Yes Correct. We want to use postcode anywhere in our forms . . . . How do we integrate?

    We currently don't have PostcodeAnywhere integration as of the moment but let me submit a feature request to our 2nd level about this integration.

    In the mean time you can use our widgets LocationAddress, and Postal like what my colleague mentioned above.

    Can you describe a little bit more how such an integration would work? Should it check if the post code is correct by comparing the city and postcode? If you can link to an example form that has such an integration that would be even better.

    Hi

    When applicants fill in their details they only need to enter their postcode & then select their own address. This then pre-populates the fields. see image attached.

    Thank you for the additional detail.

    It seems you want something very similar to the postal widget as I previously suggested above but powered by PostalAnywhere instead.

    My colleague has opened up a feature request for this on your behalf. Our developers will look this over for consideration as soon as they are able to and if it is implemented then we will update you here as soon as it is done.

    I was just searching for the same thing, so very good to hear this feature might be on the way.
