Limiting address autocompletion to specific countries

author Bella Rich, September 21st, 2017

When you start typing an address into the input field at the top of our locator, it will pop up a list of suggested addresses which match the partial address that you've entered. Until now, the ability to limit the suggested addresses to specific countries has been somewhat limited but we've just released an update which improves this significantly, allowing you to choose multiple countries from a list.

If this setting is set to 'Zip / Post codes and Cities only' it will only match against the zip code instead which may be preferable for certain types of business.

To change this setting, look for the following field:

If you'd like us to add any extra countries to the list of Address Search Regions just get in touch with us and we can do that in a few minutes.
