    Is it possible for the component to use the zip code from the data record upon which it is placed? I installed the package and can only manually input the zip code in the UI, which limits the weather output to the same location regardless of which account, contact, or custom object is being displayed at the time.
    • Webkul Support
      Hello, Matthew!
      Thank you for reaching out to us and showing interest in our Lightning component Weather Forecaster.
      As per the standard functionality of this component, we have provided you an option to set the Weather info manually through ZipCode, State/Country, or City Name.
      However, if you wish, we can customize it for you so that the weather details gets listed dynamically as per the record page which is displayed.
      We’ll proceed with the customization after your approval.
      You can let me know your preferred time so that we may have conversation on call or via GoToMeeting for your better understanding.
      Looking forward to your response.
