    Is it possible to set the Geolocation marker to a default location?

    Asked by kelseymccutcheon on October 01, 2014 at 06:47 PM


    I would like my geolocation map to default to Reno, NV, and let people scroll around from there.  Is there a way to do this?

    Thank you!

    Hi Kelsey,

    Unfortunately, there's no available configuration in the Geolocation widget that lets you set a default location. The location is automatically set based on the submitters IP Address. They have to drag the marker if they need to change the location.

    Thank you!
