Add-on to update address based on zip code

  • 1.  Add-on to update address based on zip code

    Posted Nov 03, 2016 11:57 AM

    We currently have a customer script used to update our City and State fields based on the zip and country fields. It has given us many issues, so I wondered if anyone knows of an add-on that does something similar?

    @Axel Girgensohn - do you have info on where you purchased your database, and how to build out the entity within Dynamics?

    Are you using any API's to pull that information? I have seen the Google GeoCode API being very useful and reliable for something like that.

    @Sunil Raheja
    the zip code data was imported manually on a random basis.
    I never got to build the function to load the address. But the Google api is also an option.
