Can I add a Google interactive map to my form?

123ContactForm Google interactive map

Yes, you can add a Google interactive map to your web form. In the Form Editor, you will find the Google map field in the Advanced section of the Add Field panel on the left. Drag and drop it on the form, next select it and go to Edit FieldCustomize Map. In the lightbox, type in the address and press Update Map Preview to pinpoint to the current location. A marker will be displayed on the map. The Google map is interactive only in preview/view mode, and of course, in the customization lightbox.

By default, the map is set as interactive, meaning that users can navigate through the map and also view the map in the satellite mode. You can set the width and height of the map (in pixels), as well as the zoom.

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

    Map doesn’t show up on forms though it use to and it shows up in the form before it’s published….

    • Hello Lisa!

      If I’ve understood correctly, you say the Google map shows up in the editor, but not in the preview/view mode? Could you give us some more details such as the browser and operating system that you are using and send them to our Support Team at support@123contactform.com?

      They will offer you all the properly assistance that you need.

      Thanks!

    The map no longer shows on our reservation form?

    It’s the first item on our form.

    I’ve deleted and added it again – but the website only shows a blank area? It used to work just fine.

    I’m using a Wix website and did save as that feature.

    • Hello Jennifer!

      We have checked the Google Map with a Wix account, but there haven’t been any problems. Please specify the browser, the version of the browser and the operating system you are using, and send it to our Support Team at support@123contactform.com

      Also, if you could provide us with a screenshot, we’d appreciate the effort, as it would help us to better understand your scenario.

      Thanks!
