Understanding and using the Geolocation element

The Geolocation element allows you to locate yourself or your users by recording your geographical position. Example. You manage a security company and want to ensure the reliability of your agents. Inserting a Geolocation field in your form will allow you to check their real location at the time they make the entry.

In the back-office.

  • Create your form and add a Geolocation element.
  • Several options are available: - Entry required: this means that the form can only be saved once this field is filled in. - Editable position: to get accurate coordinates. - Automatic geolocation when opening a form
  • You can select the map view type: - Normal view (the default roadmap view). - Satellite view (Google earth satellite image). - Hybrid view (a mixture of normal and satellite view).
  • You can choose the zoom level. To have an idea: 1 displays the word map and 18 displays the corresponding street. 12 displays more or less the neighbourhood.
