When Mapsly geocodes an input address from a record to determine its location (coordinates), it also receives the full and correct address from the geocoder with any errors in the input address corrected and any missing parts added. In Mapsly it's called a "true" address and is available along with the determined coordinates to be imported automatically back to the CRM upon geocoding.

You may use this feature to automatically "clean" your addresses and geocode them in your CRM. This will help you find duplicates in addresses or prevent errors in your mailing or shipping addresses.

To import the "true" address and/or the location back to the CRM:

1- Go to Setup in the main menu:

2- Click Objects & fields in your data source's context menu:

3- Expand the object for which you'd like to save the "true" fields to the data source and click the Crosshairs icon:

4- Check the Save selected fields to CRM box in the True address and geocoded coordinates section:

5- Scroll down and select the fields in your data source that will be receiving the data you need (adjust the "field mapping"), here's an example:

IMPORTANT! Mapsly will overwrite these fields in your data source, when you save your settings by clicking Save & update settings on the Objects & fields page.

When mapping the fields, you may select whether you'd like the street number (house #) to be included into the street address or to be saved as a separate field:

  • To save the street address with the house number included in one field, map the House + Street field while leaving the Street and House fields set to No auto-saving, as shown on the screenshot above. Here you may also indicate whether you'd like the house number or street name to come first:

  • To save the street name and the house number into separate fields, simply map the House and Street fields while leaving the House+Street field set to No auto-saving.
