For the best performance and greatest user experience:

  • Minimize the number of interactions between your website and the API e.g. search after a number of characters or after a period of inactivity.
  • Make sure that you delete / over-ride any previous searches captured from the users input.
  • Prevent browser auto-fill pop up, as this can cover up suggestions or input incorrect data.
  • For Autocomplete and Single-field search types, inform your users to separate address elements by commas.
  • Make sure it is clear to users that more suggestions are available, they just need to continue to type to refine the search.
