I think I have asked this before but I am getting different answers.
I would like an address to match (and not pop up the address change window) if the score is above the threshold and the zip code matches the first 5 numbers (ignoring the last 4).
The reason is that most of my imports are for online CC transactions where people enter their addresses in a form. Most people do not use the +4 notation but we run Address Finder on our DB so all of our RE addresses have the +4.
What this means is that many addresses that match 100% (except for the +4) are stopped.
Can I do this through the UI somewhere or will it have to be API? If API, how would I catch that?
Here are my settings and examples.
It even seems like all addresses are coming up? Am I missing something?
I have finally gotten around to coding some API to help with this.
Since I run AddressFinder I have the +4 on most of my zip codes. When I import constituents from our online db IOM will pop up the address processing form even if the address matches 100% but the new zip code does not have the +4.
I tested this with an import that had two identical lines except one had a normal zip and the other had a zip+4. IOM stopped on the normal zip but not on the zip+4. (The zip+4 was already in RE for that record)
RE Record Zip = 01234-5555
Import Line 1 Zip = 01234
Import Line 2 Zip = 01234-555
IOM stops on line 1 but not on line 2. This happens even if I set my address threshold way down and multiple address are above the threshold (which is what we had originally thought was making the APP pop up)
So I made a little API addition that sets the imported zip code to the RE zip code if the first 5 characters match, that way the import doesn't stop.
