    GPS Latitude and Longitude

    Asked by aidanmagee on May 27, 2015 at 05:05 AM

    Hi Guys,


    I'm testing a form using GPS with a Map that allows the user to pick the location. I'm then sending results to Google Sheets, but the map part places a google link into the google sheet. Is there a way I can get the actual coordinates Lat/Lon instead of the google maps URL ?

    Hi aidanmagee,


    Thanks for contacting us.


    GPS Location widget will output the link. However, you may use our Geolocation widget to output the actual longitude and latitude to your spreadsheet.


    Hope that helps.

    By the way, here's how you add Geolocation widget to the form and the corresponding result.
