The address lookup can be enabled or disabled for any particular Vtiger module. You can choose your required module from the ‘Configure Field Mapping for’ drop-down menu. The Address Lookup for Vtiger CRM also supports the custom module. Whenever you import a new custom module, the custom fields will be automatically updated to this configuration drop-down menu of selecting modules. Then enable/disable autocomplete mailing address field for the selected module.
Map the Google Address field and Vtiger field
The Google Places Suggest API gets the details of Street, Route, Area, Locality, City, State, Country, and Postal Code. Mapping fields assign the fetched Google address field to the corresponding Vtiger fields.
The street is the mandatory starting point. You can map your ‘Mailing street’ or ‘Other street’ to this field. Similarly, you can map all the required fields with their corresponding Vtiger fields. Only the mapped fields in the configuration page will autocomplete the selected address fields. The Address lookup extension doesn’t suggest the autocomplete address field for the unmapped fields.
You can define this mapping uniquely for all Vtiger entity modules. You can define any number of mapping fields equal to the address details you collect in individual modules by clicking on Add More. You can manage the mapping by creating, editing, and deleting the mappings. Once done with the configuration and mapping click on Save.
