Getting Google Places to work in an input

I’m trying to create a profile form where I ask the user to type in which university they attended. I would like for them to have a dynamic input box that helps them autofill their university’s name. So I installed the google places plugin and got the key. But now, I’m having a really hard time implementing it. :frowning: I’ve tried input boxes, search boxes, even dropdowns, but I still can’t figure out how to do it.
Thanks in advance!

I think you want to use a Search Box set to Geographic Address.

Google Places tends to be more location based searching, so search for something NEAR a University.

Thanks Nigel, but if I do that it doesn’t give me a list of universities. There are plenty of universities that don’t come up. Does this mean I won’t be able to do that using Bubble?

Yes, there is a difference between the address search and the Place Search.

What you can do in that case is use Places Text Search in a Repeat Group, and get them to choose…

Do you know of a way to remove the street addresses from the group list? I have the same setup already but can’t figure that part out.
