Autocomplete is a drop-down list with suggested locations , which appears when your users start typing something in a search box.

If at some point you noticed , that it doesn’t work on your side, it may mean that you’re either missing  Google API key  or it doesn’t have enough permission for this feature.

If you didn’t generate API key yet, please follow instructions mentioned under  this link and most likely this would fix autocomplete issue.

If you already have API key then do the following:

First, login to your Google Console API dashboard – https://console.developers.google.com/apis/dashboard  and check if you have the following APIs enabled.

  • Google Maps Geocoding API
  • Google Maps Geolocation API
  • Google Maps JavaScript API

If you do this should look like on below screenshot.

apikey_libraries

If not, you’ll need to add them.  So, press ‘Enable API’

enableapi-1

In the search field start typing the name of the API and Google will display the list.

enableapi-2

Click on the API item and you’ll be navigated to the screen where you can read about it and enable. Press ‘Enable’ and you’re done.

enableapi-3

Repeat the same steps with all mentioned APIs that are required for Storemapper .

That’s it! Check that your Autocomplete feature is now working.
