If you’re looking to collect information for something like a delivery address from your respondents, then the Address question type is an easy, one-step way to ask for all their details.

You can ask for the following information with the Address question type:
- Address line 2

Here’s how to add an Address question to your typeform:
1. Click + and select Address.
2. Type the question you want to ask, and add a description to it, if you want to.
3. To make sure they follow the correct address format, field names and labels cannot be edited, but you can choose to set these fields as required...
4. …or optional by clicking the asterisk icons.
Once you’ve set at least one field in the Address question type as required, the Address question itself will be shown as required, but people will still be able to skip optional fields.
Note: The fields of the Address question type are simple text fields, so the address lines entered are not validated, but respondents can use the placeholder text to see examples of the correct format. However, if they mistype their address, or enter an invalid postal code, they can still submit the typeform.
5. Click Add next to Image or video to add some nice visuals to your Address question.
6. You can choose to upload your own image, paste a link to a video, or search for images and videos in the Unsplash and Pexels libraries...
