    Can I pass in the Destination City field into the Driving Distance Widget?

    Asked by Johnschweighardt on November 19, 2016 at 10:43 AM

    I need to determine which one of my employees is closest to a client.  I have multiple driving distance widgets with each employee's address.  I do NOT want to have to cut and paste the destination city for each employee to see who is the closest.  Is there a way to pass the value?  Thanks

    I'm not quite sure I understand what you mean other than it's obvious you wish to pass one field into another namely the driving distance widget.

    The reason I am slightly confused about what you're wanting here is because you have the Driving Distance Widget already being used for your employees and their address for each of those fields.

    Did you maybe mean you want to take the first field for the Client Address (Geocomplete Widget) and send that into the distance field for the driving distance widget perhaps?

    At any rate though, as far as I know that particular widget doesn't work with the calculations or conditions to carry the value over into it so unfortunately it's not currently possible but if myself or one of my colleagues is able to come up with any sort of workaround we'll definitely inform you.
