    Adding the Google autocomplete for Google address and Google Places

    Asked by 408babbu on December 31, 2014 at 04:18 AM



    I see you have some good options but as I can see I do not see a box with will autocomplete Google places, I am able to see it happen for address but It would be really helpfull if there a box for auto completion for both places and address. Please let me know if that is is possible.

    Hi Amar,

    I see that you have tried our Autocompleted Address widget and our GeoComplete widgets. What I would suggest is to take a look at our other similar widgets to see if some of them would allow you to accomplish what you are after: Mapping widgets.

    If not do let us know if I have understood you correctly, that you would like to allow the user to select not only the address but Google Places as well in your jotform?

    If so do let us know and we will raise this to our developers as a feature request. As we can not guarantee that this would be added as a feature, I would still suggest going through the rest of the widgets and see if some of them would allow you to accomplish what you are after.

    For example you could get their approximate GPS location.

    Best Regards,

    Good afternoon,
    yes the option is there but it is in a map field with current location
    since I am Taxi Fleet I was looking for just an address and Google places
    search box. There is an address search box but it dose not populate google
    places such as a restaurant or hotels located in the area. I am in Bay Area
    and we have 100 taxi and several people like the option to search a place
    and an address via Google search box auto complete. It would be great if
    you could you please make this happen, as soon as its done I will sign up
    with your pro version account. I think your developers should be able to do
    it with few changes since the widget "GPS location" dose work but it keeps
    showing the map and location which is really confusing to the customer,
    however this widget dose do the full search what I am looking for. So if
    you could please somehow create just a search box by it self which will not
    show map nor the gps location. I hope this help if you would like to talk
    to me for few min I wouldn't mind you guys calling me at 408-799-6396.
    Thank you very much!!

    Hi Amar,

    I apologize do for the late response, but due to the issue on our server, no email responses were accepted until now.

    Following up on the thread I see that this was related to the Google Places and addresses, but can you please let us know if I am correct on the following:

    You would like to add Google Places search to the widget called Address Map Locator?

    Are you referring to this feature - https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/examples/places-autocomplete? I checked your previous threads and it seems that this feature has already been escalated to our development team on this thread - http://www.jotform.com/answers/492640. Unfortunately, this feature is still under development.  We will inform you any updates on the issue on your other thread.


    Do let us know if you need further assistance.

    I want something like that but only the search box instead of any other details. For example a plain search box with will autocomplete and let search place and address via google.
