    GeoComplete Widget Feature Request: Have postcode included in autocompleted address

    Asked by untimed on December 11, 2014 at 09:05 PM

    Hi  Jotform

    I am using the geocomplete widget on my form, https://secure.jotform.co/form/43308413531850, and it is working really well except that it doesn't return the postcode as part of the address. I found the following page http://ubilabs.github.io/geocomplete/ which suggests that the geocomplete API can provide a postcode, but  I can't see how to modify the widget to get it to return it.

    Eg for "17 Raglan Road Per" the geocomplete widget currently returns "17 Raglan Road, Perth, Western Australia, Australia". I'd like it to return "17 Raglan Road, Perth, Western Australia, 6000, Australia".

    Can you advise how to do this?

    Thanks

    Cheers


    Geoff

    Hi Geoff,

    Although there's currently no setting in the widget to do that, I have forwarded the request to our developers and you'll be notified here if and when it's implemented.

    Thanks

    Unfortunately this is not possible at this time, but in order for our developers to see how many people are interested into having this feature available, I have moved your thread here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/494407

    We will be responding to it and raising a thread to our developers there as well.
