Step 14: Edit Your Home Address & Work Address


One of the most powerful features of your community is connecting with other members within the directory map. To ensure that your location shows up on the map, please use a validated address. To create a Google Validated Address, start typing your address and select your complete, validated address from the list that appears below.  Your address information is parsed to the appropriate fields below, and you can update any additional mailing address information (apartment, building, box, etc.) within the address2 field.

About Privacy - Mark your address as public and your profile will appear on our map directory. Street-level information will always remain private on the map and profile. Your privacy is important to us. Even if you make your address public, our map zoom is restricted from displaying street-level details, and profiles display only the city and state. If you prefer not to be shown on the map, set your privacy to "PRIVATE."

Why share an address if I am going to mark it private? Your community administrators will be able to see a private address and keep it updated in their personnel records.
