Google Maps Extender plugin Way point format


#1

Hi, I’m testing a route calculator using the plugin for Bubble. It seems to work fine when inputting waypoints separated by commas into a single input the way it is setup in the plugin demo.

However it doesn’t return a result when you enter a search expression evaluating to geographic places in the waypoints field. I’m guessing geographic locations don’t work as waypoints? Is there a way around this? For example the right formatting? Thanks to anyone who can respond.

Text waypoint input:

Changed waypoints to search result:

Just origin to destination:

When search result returns a positive:

Hello!

Thank you for your post, we’ve tried different options yesterday and decided to make an update to add the functionality you’ve asked about:

Added field Waypoints DB Geo (optional) in action, Add Directions.
This is a List of geographic addresses from data base.

Changed sorting method for Waypoints field - text.
Now If there are more than one waypoint, write each one on new line without comma.

If you wish to take the address from the database, leave “Waypoints” empty and scroll down to “Waypoints DB Geo”. Fill this field with the search query and see the result.
Here’s a video to illustrate the settings: https://www.loom.com/share/eb620bc00ebc46238da8d0f287108d9c

Note that the address field should be a list of geographic addresses:

Please update the plugin and give it a try.

Kind regards,
Olga

Hi @olga.medvedeva, I’ve tested the plugin and it now outputs the route perfectly. Just one more thing however. I now need to output each waypoint in the calculated order to a map to allow the user to navigate. Would you be able to suggest a way to do this?
