Jotform has a lot of mapping widgets available for your forms. We have a map widget that can display your business location, calculate the distance from the origin to the destination, or geo-stamp your form submission without users needing to input it.
Jotform’s mapping widgets work with the default API key we have. However, we highly recommend setting up your API key to avoid interruptions.
Having a separate key for the widget is recommended because once the default API key reaches its limit, there is no way for Jotform to notify you about it. If you own the key, Google will notify you if there’s an issue or your billing needs to be updated.
Here are the prerequisites before you can create the API Key:
If you’ve already set up the above, let’s go with creating and setting up the API Key.
To create the API Key:
You must set restrictions if you don’t want to expose your API key outside the Jotform domains.
To set up the restrictions:
/*--- Jotform Domains --- */ *.jotform.com/* (Jotform main domain) *.jotformpro.com/* (Old Premium/Pro account) *.jotform.ca/* (Canada) *.jotform.me/* (Asia) *.myjotform.com/* (Africa) *.jotformz.com/* (South America) *.jotform.co/* (Others) *.jotform.us/* (USA) *.jotformeu.com/* (EU) /*---Jotform Widgets ---*/ *.jotform.io/*
We recommend enabling all Maps API. Here’s how you can do that:
When enabled, the page will redirect you to the list of APIs under your Google Cloud account. Go back to API Library at step #1 and enable the other Maps API. You should see all enabled APIs under Google Maps Platform.
