I am looking for the field to put my google api key for google maps in Event Espresso > Venues > Google Maps but I don’t see it anywhere.

Where is it?

Here are the steps for getting setup with Google Maps:

1) Go to WP-admin (WP dashboard) –> Event Espresso –> Venues –> Google Maps

2) Towards the top of the page, you will see a new field for the Google Maps API key. There is a link that says click here to get an API key. Go ahead and click on it.

3) You’ll be prompted to login to your Google account. If you do not have one, then take a moment to create one and then login

4) After logging in, you’ll be asked to accept the terms and conditions. Go ahead and do that and then click Agree and Continue:

5) On the following page, you’ll be asked to enter a name for the project. Go ahead and do so and then click Create:

6) Allow a few moments for the API Key to be created and then your key will appear:

7) Copy it and then switch to your other browser tab for the Google Maps settings for Event Espresso and paste it within the Google Maps API Key field and then save changes
