    Hi there please see below for versions:

    I don’t think any of your above suggestions help us unfortunately.

    What we want to do is as follows:

    User manually enters the postcode of their doctor’s surgery.
    User selects a service from a drop-down list.
    We are adding services as categories.

    Results returned.

    This currently works, however, we need the postcode that is entered in step 1 to be part of the filter in terms of an additional hidden category or tag.

    Not all services will be available to all doctor’s surgeries.

    The distance from the surgery is not really relevant.

    We therefore need an additional hidden category or a hidden tab that takes on the value of the postcode entered and is combined with the category to return the desired results.

    E.g

    User enters postcode RG30 4ET
    User selects service Minor Eye Conditions
    If we have two locations with the following data

    Store One, *Minor Eye Conditions, **RG30 4ET
    Store Two, *Minor Eye Conditions, **RG30 2RF

    * Indicates visible category
    ** Indicates hidden category or tag

    From the above, the map would only display the first result.


    Hopefully that all makes sense.

    Thanks for your time and help.

    This functionality  “……, however, we need the postcode that is entered in step 1 to be part of the filter in terms of an additional hidden category or tag.”  does not exist, i.e to change dynamics and have a postal code become  a hidden category or tag.   Do you just not want it to show up in the results layout? Searches by postal code and results are combination of settings and the Google Map API platform.  You can change results layout since you have experience add-on

    I am not following the logic of why you need  postal codes to become a  hidden category. If you are looking for reporting for marketing purposes, i.e top search postal codes you can turn on reports

    I am not sure your desired outcome can be customized, but perhaps I am just not following the logic.
