Google Map form field

applies to version: 8.2.x, author: Kamil Nędza

The Google Map form field allows us to place a map on the form with point marked on it. There is a limit however, to 3 such form fields per process.

The Advanced configuration of the Google Map field contains 3 variants. The point on the map can be set based on:

  • Coordinates – Enter the latitude and longitude divided by a “#” sign.
  • Address –  Enter the address of where you want the mark to be placed.
  • Address (dynamic) – Use an SQL query, which will return an address, which will be marked on the map.

In the Advanced configuration screen we can also set which map view we want (ex. Satellite view), as well as the height of the field on the form. The width adjusts automatically.
