Autocompleted address widget:the google address engine also needs to capture the unit number for Australia

    I've just done a submission to see the output, and you're right, it only had the 6 data fields. This is a major fault that needs to be fixed in this widget (hopefully asap).

    It looks like, despite a profound amount of coding I asked for to customise this widget, I now have to revert to the more basic google address engine, because this data is lost.

    If someone puts an address in, and it includes a unit number, that unit number MUST be captured.

    I hope it can be fixed asap. 

    Please let me know, because as I say, if it won't be, I have to remove that widget completely

    I've also tested the autocomplete widget on a sample form and I also encountered the same issue on a cloned form.

    Here is how it works on my side:

     

    I have forwarded this to our developers to have it checked and fixed. Apologies for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience on this matter. We will update you on this thread as soon as this has been fixed. For now, I suggest you use our address field instead of autocompleted widget.

    Basically all it needs, is a 7th box to be added to capture any unit number
    separate from a street (house) number.
    That will work for Australian addresses at least!

    Thank you for providing basic info. I've updated your feature request as you see below:

    For now, I recommend using a basic text field for unit number.You will be notified about it if they decide to implement it via this thread.
