Formstack Integration Guide

Integration with Formstack address forms made simple

A step-by-step guide to integration with Formstack address forms.

Preparation

Download

Download our Formstack plugin from the plugins page. For Formstack we only offer a plugin for Postcode Lookup (UK only). The plugin is free to download.

Visit the download page  

Sign Up

Next, you need to sign up for a Crafty Clicks account.

When you sign up, you will receive an access token by email. There is no obligation to buy anything and you automatically get 100 trial lookups. If you need more lookups to test the integration, please get in touch (support@craftyclicks.co.uk) and we will try to accommodate you.

Installation

Step 1

Copy and paste your access token into craftyclicks_formstack.txt (in place of xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx).

Step 2

In your Formstack form editor add a new “Embed Code” block at the bottom of the form. Edit the block and copy and paste the whole contents of craftyclicks_formstack.txt.

For Postcode Lookup, it is assumed that you already have an “Address” group on your form that is set to UK.

For Address AutoComplete, some care needs to be taken regarding country selection. If you want to allow multiple countries, select "Other" for your address group in Formstack. Otherwise select the country you want and modify the enabledCountries option in craftyclicks_formstack.txt to match.

Step 3 (optional)

Postcode Lookup: On lines 1 – 36 of craftyclicks_formstack.txt. you will find some configuration settings. You will need to upload any changes again as per step 2.

Address Auto-Complete: You can modify or add configuration settings between lines 6 and 12 of craftyclicks_formstack.txt.
