Address validation is available to Hosted clients through System -> Data Management -> Address Validation menu. Note, the user should have all appropriate security tickets to see this menu.
We source the Address data from the PSMA Geocoded National Address File (G-NAF).
G-NAF is one of the most ubiquitous and powerful spatial datasets. It contains more than 13 million Australian physical address records. This address data is also used for our full address lookup feature is can be enabled free of charge through System -> System Management -> Manage ChilliDB Optional Features.
This Address data will be updated annually as part of Operational tasks by the Operations team. Currently this supports only addresses in Australia.
Address validation is only available to Hosted clients.
In Address Validation page, when a Module is selected from the Module list, the validation runs for the addresses entered in that module. Currently the Module list has Contact, Organisations.
The Suburb, State, Postcode of the addresses entered in Contact/Organisations will be validated. Any records that fails this validation will be listed out in this page. Only current Contact/Organisations are considered for this validation.
Below is an example.
Valid Address -------------- Suburb : Brisbane State : QLD Postcode : 4000
Invalid Address --------------- Suburb : Brisbane State : QLD Postcode : 4999
