Requiring Address Selection


To use the country filter, you need to ensure that addresses are filled in. Require address selection for all users when creating an organization or an opportunity.


If you set the address selection as not required for opportunities and/or organisations, those fields will then allow virtual addresses.



Note: If the opportunity or the organization is in rural areas (or informal settlements), there's a chance that the mapping solution won't be able to find the specific location of the opportunity or organization. The user must fill out the address information.


To do this, simply toggle on the Address selection is required for the creation of an opportunity and Address selection is required for the creation of an organization under [Country and Maps Preferences].



Note: Ensure your moderators are checking addresses to avoid missing any information.
