We support Google Address search for Address fields on Paperform Agency plans. This is because You'll need to set up a Google Places API and share that with us in order to integrate this with your account. Note that this is different to Google autocomplete which simply fills in your cached information (that's available on any plan and is managed by Google via your browser). Here's what to do if you want Google Address Search:

1. Create a Google Places API Key

  1. To create a Google Places API Key you will need to register for a paid account at console.cloud.google.com.
  2. Once your account is setup open the menu and go to the Marketplace
  3. Search for the "Maps Javascript API" and select it.
  4. On the following page click the "Enable" button.
  5. Once the API is enabled return to the marketplace and repeat the process for the following APIs: "Places API" and "Geocoding API"
  6. Once these APIs are all enabled open the menu and go to APIs & Service and then Credentials.
  7. Click the "+ Create Credentials" button and then click "API Key"
  8. In the popup dialog click "Restrict Key" to add restrictions that will help to prevent other people using your API Key.
  9. Under "Application Restrictions" select "HTTP Referrers (websites)"
  10. Under "Website Restrictions" select "Add Item". As a minimum you will need to add "*.paperform.co/*" to allow forms to use the API key. If you have any custom domains you will also need to add them.
  11. Under "API Restrictions" you might want to select "Restrict Key" to restrict the API key to working with certain APIs. If you so you will need to select "Maps Javascript API", "Places API" and "Geocoding API" from the dropdown.
  12. At the top of the page give your API key a helpful name so you can remember what it is for and then copy the API key.

2. Notify us via support

Once you've created your Google Places API Key, provide us with your API key by contacting us via our live chat or support@paperform.co and we will connect it to your account. This usually takes up to 48 hours, and we'll confirm when your account is connected.

3. Configure your Address field on your form to enable Google Address Search

Once you've received confirmation from us, you can then go to your Address field on your form, select Configuration to the right of the field, and then turn on the "Enable Google Address Search" toggle.

Remember to test your form to ensure it's working as you've intended, and let us know if you have any further questions.
