I am using the openlayers widget map to calculate the location from the address. I do this instead of using automated geofield because sometimes the location calculated by google is not accurate.

Neverteless, to get Openlayers to calculate I have to press the get location from address field button. I was wondering if there was a way to automate this as geomap used to do in Drupal 6?

I import content with a Feed, and this means I need to go manually and press the button for each node, which is really annoying. in Drupal 6 and Geomap it used to calculate it automatically, and then, if I wanted I could move the point and override the location. IMHO this would be the ideal way it should work.

Is there a way to get this done automatically? I tried rules and other methods, but no easy solution comes to mind.

This sounds like it's outside the scope of the Openlayers module, but I might not be fully understanding the issue. Are you using Geocoder with your Addressfield? If so, then it's probably better suited as a feature request in one of those projects. The primary focus of Openlayers is building and displaying maps.

Feel free to reopen if you want to discuss further.
