The Address field allows you to enter and validate addresses. The Address field is also capable of auto-completely, displaying the entered address directly inside a Google map.

In addition to its validation capabilities, the address field is important for tracking geographic information. SmartSuite offers view types such as map view, which allows users to show any address from a record on a map. Map View automatically recognizes Address fields in the Table.

Adding an Address field

From Grid View

Click the + menu icon after the last column header or open the Column Menu by clicking on a column header's dropdown icon and then select "Add Field to the Right."

Select "Address" and a window will open to configure the field. You can search for the name for a quick find.

From Record View

The fastest way to add a field from an open Record View to is simply click the + sign next to a current field to add a new field below.

Customizing the field

Solution Managers can control how Address fields are displayed in page layouts, choosing between:

  • Single Line with or without a map preview (recommended for apps with a large number of fields)

  • Multiple Line with or without a map preview

Setting an Address field to be included in map display or as required is also an option.

Examples of Use

Customer Relationship Management

Map accounts, contacts, and opportunities to geographies.

Real Estate & Property Management

Track attributes of physical properties and link to work orders, maintenance histories, improvements and more.

Addresses & Grouping

Address fields provide a dash of power when grouping in saved views. You're able to group by each element of the Address field - Street, Suite / Apt / Blvd, City, State, Zip, and Country.

View records by City & State, or any permutation of a location.

Address Autocomplete

SmartSuite performs a real-time search via Google Maps when you begin typing addresses. Just click the right address as it appears and we will autocomplete the rest of the field values.
