I'm having issues with users not obeying instructions to select an option from my address field's autocomplete suggestions.

Is there a way to force users to select an option from the dropdown? Rather than allowing them to just save whatever text they like?

Perhaps some kind of validation? I doubt I'm the first one to think of this, but I can't find anything in the forum about it.

Hello. Thank you for contacting the Toolset support.

There is no such feature available to restrict users allow users only to select the options from the auto-suggest addresses.

You may file a feature request and our product manager will review it:
