    Hey team. I agree with the logic i.e. 80% accuracy, but it seems that it's 100% broken for us? Perhaps it's to do with the fact we are based in Australia? Was working fine, but not so much now (months now... thought it would go away)! Would appreciate your help!

    Hey @admin!

    We would love to take a look at this further! To best serve you, would you be so kind to reach out to our team via email with some more information, such as a few addresses and account information? In the meantime, a few things to check in the address field and account settings are the following:

    • Requires valid latitude / longitude (i.e. won't map PO Boxes).
    • It would require that the country setting for the account matches the country that it is attempting to map in.

    We look forward to hearing from you soon, so that we can troubleshoot this with you! 

    Happy Breezing!

    I can understand the concept, but when I click the link and it takes me to google maps, it comes up with no problem.

    Hey @jeff,

    I totally understand where you are coming from! When you click on the link, the address will open in whatever your internet browser's natural mapping service is, which is often Google Maps. However, the mapping function within Breeze is not provided by Google Maps and the third-party service that we do use is unable to accurately map that address. We apologize for the inconvenience as this does not mean that the address does not exist, but that we were unable to provide an accurate match.

    Blessings.

    Hi,

    I just opened our account and noticed that the map doesn't work with the uploaded addresses yet when I click edit individually and save (without making any changes), the map appears. Any way to execute that process without clicking on each address one at a time?

    Thanks!

    Alex

    Will Breeze still generate a mailing label for addresses that are not able to be mapped?

    Great question! Yes, the address will still be produced. 

    Cheers!

    We used to be able to see a map with all our tagged addresses but not only one or two addresses appears on the map. Have you changed providers? If so, it's not working very well. Less than 10% of all addresses are mapping for us now when it used to be more than 90%.
