Allow users to add their current location when creating an item


I have a particular use case where team members are going out to different locations in the field to report back on damage to property, roads etc…

Is it possible to have a “Drop Pin” type feature when a user is creating a new item?

Thank you!


Hi @Jasha

This feature isn’t currently available however I believe it is on the features wish list so hopefully the glide team will pick it up and make it available in good time!

This would be great! I know there a possibility via javascript to get user location, but there is no way to update a field with this information. I see this information implemented as a “user data” like the email address.

It would be great if there was some more special field values such as user current location in glide

This is now available as the Location component.
