In Forms, an Address input field can be used to collect a person’s full address (Street, City, State, Zip code, Country) without having to create or manage multiple textbox fields.
Address Field input type allows you to make fields in a form to retrieve the address from your users. Forms offers six different input fields by default to retrieve data from users. They are- Address Line 1, Address Line 2, City, State, Zip Code, and Country.
Now you can autocomplete your address field using google map integrations.
- To add an Address Field to your form, drag and drop the field from the available input fields.
- To enable customization, click on the edit icon you get when hovering over the field. Or click on the Input Customization tab in the right sidebar when the field is selected.
In the Input Customization section, you will find different options like–
- Basic Options
- Advanced Options
Basic Options #
On the right side of the tab, there are some important Basic options which are given below:
- Element Label: This is the text that users will see on the form for the email input field. You can put any text here that helps to understand the purpose of that field.
- Admin Field Label: If you want to show a different label for your admin users when they view the form submissions you can configure that using this option. It doesn’t have any actual effect on the form but rather only for administrative purposes.
- Address Fields: From this section, customize the six data input fields (Address Line 1, Address Line 2, City, State, Zip Code, Country). Check on/off any field according to your needs. If you want, you can change the position of the individual Address Fields by dragging the bar icon according to your requirements. Click on the drop-down button beside these fields and determine the Input Field Label, Default, Placeholder, Help Message, and Required options.
