Learn more about the Advanced Components

Advanced Components are often Basic Components that have been extended to meet more complex requirements. You can find information for each of the Advanced Components like unique settings, JSON code, and field examples below:


The Email component is a string field that carries special input validation ensuring the entered data is in a valid email format. A valid email address consists of an email prefix and an email domain, both in acceptable formats.

Realtime Validation: In addition to the normal email format validation, bring real-time Email validation through our integration with For more information on how this works, please check out the Kickbox Integration section.


Similar to the Email field, the URL component is a string field that carries special input validation ensuring the entered data is in a valid URL format. Validation will check to see if the entered input data is at least in the correct format to potentially be a legitimate URL.

There are no unique settings for the URL component.

Phone Number

The Phone Number field carries an input mask to force the user to enter the field data in Phone Number format.

EG (123) 123-1234

There are no unique settings for the Phone Number component.


The Tag component draws attention to or categorizes elements on your form. Multiple tags can be added to one Tag field.

The Address component is a special component that performs an address lookup based on user input using several map and location providers as well as Custom Provider support. Address data can also be entered in free form and will save the address as well as geolocation and other metadata.

Google Map Integration Guide

Due to recent changes to the Google Maps API usage policies, an enabled Maps Javascript API and valid Maps API Key are required for all Address lookups using the Google Maps provider. Follow the instructions below to generate your Google Map API key.

  1. Navigate to the Google Maps Platform and click the Get Started button Follow the steps and Google will create a Project and Maps API key. Copy the API key and ensure you check the 'Enable all Google Maps API's for this project' setting If you've never used the Google Cloud Platform before, follow the steps below to generate an API key.

  1. Navigate to the Google Maps Platform and click the ' Enabled API's and services' tab to view enabled API's (ensure the Maps Javascript API is included in the 'API's and services' section)

  1. Click the Credential tab to review or copy your Map API key if you did not do so in the previous step

It's advised to restrict your API key to prevent unauthorized usage. Edit your API key to add restriction parameters

  1. Login to and add an Address component to a form

  1. Inside the Address settings, click the Provider tab, select Google Maps, and paste your Google Maps API key

  1. Use the form and the Address component will perform a lookup and populate results as the user inputs data into the field

Enable Manual Mode: Checking this setting adds a checkbox under the Address field. Should the user check this, the address lookup through the location provider is disabled, and the traditional address field will display for manual input (Address, City, State, Zip etc)

Switch To Manual Mode Label: The label of the checkbox used for the 'Enable Manual Mode' setting.

Disable Clear Icon: Removes the 'x' clear icon found at the far right of the field. You may want to check this setting to prevent any users from accidentally clicking the icon.

Providers is integrated with several Location and Map providers for fast and easy address lookup and geolocation data.

Azure Maps: Set up your own Azure Map account and provide the subscription key to enable this map provider.

Open Street Map Nominatim: Nominatim is a tool to search OSM data by name and address and to generate synthetic addresses of OSM points

Custom: Provides settings to integrate your own custom map provider.

Google Maps: Set up a Google Map API to utilize Google's location and map technology. Please see the documentation above for a full guide on integration setup with

Manual Mode View String: Specify the template to be used when querying the view string for component values entered in manual mode. This string is used in the table view, CSV export, and email rendering. When left blank combined value of all components joined with a comma will be used.
