We are working on an app that shows stores information like social media, location and contact information. We are also presenting opening hours through the app - would it be possible to link these to the opening hours the specific store has on Google?
I say I am almost there because the External Collection can be created and tested, but with a dummy value for the parameter “input”, required in the Google Places API’s “Find Place”. But, when using the External Collection to go to Google Places and perform any query, the EC uses the dummy value provided during EC creation. Because of that, the real input provided in the screen I am creating is not used, since only one input is allowed.
If I can find a way to solve this issue, I will be able to use Find Place query to search for a place (based on a Text Field component value provided by the user) and then use Google Place API’s “Place Details” to request all the place’s details. In your case, this Place Details query can bring opening hours.
Take a look on the forum link I provided previously and you will get more details, including screenshot of what I mentioned here.
