The Id that comes back on a Google Place search

So I am pulling back a list of Google Places, and one of the parameters is “Id”.

Which looks like it ought to be the PlaceId.

But…

… it isn’t. And I am not quite sure what it is ?

Did you Google it? :confused:

I know what it is supposed to be :slight_smile:

But the value coming back isn’t valid.

Actually I did by Google the value itself, there is a thought.

@NigelG, I was reading about it yesterday, this parameter is deprecated, and one should use PlaceId

I found this thread looking for also a hint or suggestion. When you use Places API to add you own data on places, how are you guys doing? Storing the extra info on bubble and always searching on API and Bubble later of do you use Places just to register the data on Bubble and then don’t use the API anymore?

Maybe this is not your case so let me say with an example:

if you want to add your own reviews on restaurants of your city, what would be better? To use Places API only to get the list of restaurants and then add all their data to bubble, along with your own reviews, or would it be better to store only the reviews and PlaceId and get data from both Bubble and API when needed? The second seems better to me to avoid having to keep the data up to date. But the query later when you want to show a list of restaurants is more complicated. I guess I’d have to merge two lists and then show it on a repeating group.
