Add, edit and delete student and guardian postal addresses

In this article, you can see how to add new postal addresses for students and their guardians.

To mark students and guardians as living together, their logged addresses must be absolutely identical, including any punctuation and spaces. You can see how to do this here.

Adding a postal address

When adding a new guardian

Add a new guardian by clicking +Add in the Contacts section on the student's profile.

When you are adding the new guardian, you have the option to select the student's address (this will automatically give them the same address as the student) or to add a different address.

To add the guardian with a new address, and add the address as an additional student address, select to add a different address.

The student will then have two addresses.

If you do not tick this box, the student will not be given an additional address, and the student and guardian will not be marked as living together.

Managing postal addresses in bulk

Seeing a list of all student addresses and how many addresses each student has

You can see how many current addresses a student has by going to Students > All Students > Bulk Update > Student Contact Details.

Any students with none or multiple addresses will be flagged to you.

Where can we see and fix errors in postal addresses?

You can use the Contact Details areas in the Data Quality Dashboard - you can see how here: Using the Data Quality Dashboard to manage student, guardian and staff data in bulk

We use a database called Loqate (previously called Postcode Anywhere) to check addresses.

Can we delete postal addresses in bulk?

There isn't a way to bulk remove postal addresses. You will need to go into each individual profile, and delete the postal address from there.
