    How to get the distance between two 'GeoLocation' fields

    Asked by EffieMcNair on February 22, 2016 at 10:54 PM

    Hi There!

    I've created a form that is using GeoLocation Widget.  It's working well....but I would like it also to be able to return the distance between both address fields (screenshot with explanation attached). I would like to get the result into my Notifier and Not for the customer display. That will save us alot of time when quoting to customers. It seems like your 'Driving Distance Widget' could potentiality do it, but is it possible to retrieve the fields from the 'GeoLocation Widget' without  typing it all again? 


    Many thanks!

    You have to use the Driving Distance to get the distance between two fields. Unfortunately, passing the address from the Geolocation widget to the Driving Distance widget is not possible. I can request this to our widget team if you want. However, I cannot guarantee you if they will consider adding this right away.
