Showing is always easier than telling. If you need to communicate a specific address to your respondents, do it with the interactive Google Maps field. People will appreciate that you’re making their experience smoother this way.
The Google Maps field requires a 2 min setup before you can get it to work in our form builder.
To use the Map field, you first need to connect it to Google’s API. You can get your own API key from this link by pressing Get Started. You will be guided through a short process to create your own project inside the Google Map Platform in order to get a personal API key.
Important NoteGoogle’s Map service will require you to set up a billing account for the API usage. You can check their pricing system here .
If you don’t have a Billing account just yet, click on the Manage Billing Accounts button and then Create Account. Afterward, return to the setup from this link to set the billing account for your project.
Your API Key will be generated right away. You have the option to enable all the Google Maps APIs for your project or you can enable them individually from Maps APIs and Services.
You need to restrict the access to your API key and authorize its access only to trusted requests. Follow the steps below on how to authorize 123FormBuilder.
After you have received the API key, it’s time to put it to use.
Go to the form you wish to add Google Maps in and add the field. After, go to its Edit Field panel and insert the API key, as you see in the picture.
