Log the device's current location

Meet the new Glide Apps

Glide Pages are now Glide Apps. Please refer to this article for up-to-date information, as some of this documentation is outdated.

Configure the Location component


Select which column in your project's Data Source to store the user's current coordinates.


You can enable the Required option so that it is clear to users that it needs to be toggled on.

The Location component is particularly useful in Add or Form screens if your users are submitting location data. Once they have submitted their data, you can plot it on a map with the Map Component.

The Location component logs a one-time location that does not update after it is enabled. For dynamic location detection, you may consider using a Distance to Location Computed Column which updates as the user's location changes.
