Geocoding widget in Web AppBuilder is currently calling "findAddressCandidates" for auto-complete functionality. It would be nice if it call "suggest" operation that is available in world geocoding (geocode.arcgis.com) and ArcGIS server 10.3. Other javascript templates are already using "suggest" operation for auto-complete in geocoding

The Web AppBuilder version 1.1 had autocomplete for the geocoder search bar.  It lost this in 1.2 with the new Geocoder. The new geocoder supports suggest so why doesn't it do an autocomplete dropdown? Can you please implement the autocomplete dropdown via Suggest in a future Web AppBuilder update, thank you! 🙂

For now, to get this, I shoved the old 1.1 widget in to 1.2 WAB and it works fine, but the side effect is it loses the "All" combined ability which our users liked.
