Yes, finding an address using post codes is available in QuickBooks, pestcontrol.

 

QuickBooks has a link to Google Maps, where you can enter the post code of the address you want to search. This link is located in the address section of the Customer and Supplier Information pages.

You can always visit us back here if you have other questions.

Thank you.  Not really what I was looking for actually.  Let me explain.  Instead of typing in every new client address (could be 20 a day), most 'systems' let you put in the postcode and the system will then list all the addresses that us that postcode.  you can then choose one and it will populate the address field correctly.  Xero has it, Sage has it, every other website that we use has it.... so it must be on QB somewhere....?

Thank you for the details, pestcontrol.

 

The option that you're looking for is not a feature at the moment. It will surely save you time to just enter the postcodes and select an address. I'll pass along to our development team.

 

I got a workaround. This doesn't work like what you've described, but this will save you time. You can search the postcode in using the Magnifying glass icon in the upper right-hand corner, and choose from the results. This will route you to the Transaction page of the customer with that address. You can copy the whole address and paste it to the Street address field of the Customer Information page of the new customer. Then, copy and paste the city, county, post code, and country to the fields indicated. This will just be a copy-and-paste trick to save time.

 

 

Hi Malcolm Ziman!

 

Great to see you jumping in! I thought he was looking for that. By the way, thanks for helping some posters today, even if it's weekend.
