Can I add a Google interactive map to my 123FormBuilder form?

Yes, you can add a Google interactive map to your web form. Adding an interactive map to your online form is a great way to enhance user experience by providing a visual representation of locations.

Let’s say you own a travel agency and you regularly create online reservation forms for different tour packages and destinations. By incorporating an interactive map into your forms, you can not only showcase the accommodation options but also help travelers explore the proximity to understand how they can reach their destination and navigate the local area upon their arrival. Thus, travelers can seamlessly explore the location without leaving the online form.

Setting up the Google map field

In your form builder account, select your form and go to the Create tab. There, you will find the Location on Google map field in the Contact details section.

Drag and drop it on the form and head over to the right-side panel to customize the map.

To use the Location on Google map field, you will first need to create a Google API Key. Keep in mind that Google’s Map service will require you to set up a billing account for the API usage. You can check their pricing system here. For more information about your Google API Key, read this guide.

Once you have your Google API Key is time to configure the map. In the Default Map field, type in the address of a location and you will be able to see the changes on the map instantly. A marker will be displayed on the map.

By default, the map is set as interactive, meaning that users can navigate through the map and also view the map in satellite mode. You can also adjust the zoom level and set it between 1-22 pixels. The Google map is interactive only in preview/view mode.

If you don’t require the Google interactive map, but a static Google map, return to its Edit panel and uncheck the option Interactive.
