Address Validation Tile
Documentation and Setup Guide
The Address Validation Tile provides a simple way to validate new and existing addresses so that they meet NZ post requirements. This results in a significant postal discount to NonProfits. This simple tile connects to the NZ-Based address API Addy, which is free of charge to NonProfits and allows easy editing and addition of addresses. When collecting addresses from constituents it can be challenging to have consistent and correct address formats, whether you’re on a phone call or writing it on a piece of paper, misspelling and potentially incorrect addresses can be the result.
This lightweight and efficient tile offers a simple way to solve this problem. The tile is displayed in the Raiser’s Edge NXT Constituent view and you can simply type in the address and it will show suggestions of valid addresses. From there, you can pick one and either add or update an existing address.
Install your Address Validation Tile in 3 steps:
Log into Raiser’s Edge NXT
