Automatically Convert Text Column to Location

My company has thousands of clients. We converted data from Excel into three separate columns. We would like to convert these into a location column. It would be nearly impossible to copy each location individually. This is a much needed feature.

This would be ideal but it doesn’t seem to be on the roadmap.
There’s a possible workaround using Zapier and an app connected to the Google maps api.

Agreed, have been asking for this for years!

Hi @Krunchy @aj.dafoe @ikebrett12

Great news! We’ve just released a new feature in our app Location Toolkit that allows you to convert any address into a Location column. For example when a form is submitted or when you import an excel containing addresses.

In this video you can see the feature in action, although we’re using an import as an example, you can also use a different trigger, like a button click, to convert the text value in a Location column.

Don’t hesitate to reach out when you have any questions or thoughts!
