Address entry form updated

The form for entering a contact address in freelancer profiles has been updated in an attempt to make it easier to use.

You can try it out here: http://www.proz.com/settings/freelancer/contact
(Click "Change" in the "Address" section.)

Notable changes include:

* Auto-complete. (Type your city, region, and country naturally and the system will automatically try to suggest matching standardized place names when possible.)
* Simplified visibility preferences.
* A more natural layout.

Entering an address in your profile helps potential clients find you when searching by location, and makes it possible to pre-populate address fields in invoice and payment forms.

Please post below if you have any questions or comments about these updates.

Thanks,

Jason

Map location and time zone now set automatically when saving address May 3, 2013

Another update has been made to the address settings form. Now, when saving your address in your profile, the system will attempt to automatically find your position on a map and determine your timezone.

If you find that these automatic settings are incorrect for your address, please let me know. Any other feedback is welcome as well.

Thanks,

Jason

I do not agree Jul 21, 2013

Hi, Jason,
I do not think it necessary at all in this case -or other cases as well, for security reasons-to show my second surname or full address, i.e., floor, apartment.
Regards,
Trad Siniestros

second address Oct 9, 2013

Hi, I would like to be able to add a second address. In my case, displaying only 1 address, doesn't allow me to receive job alerts in my other place of residence, missing many opportunities.
Thanks

second address Jan 9, 2014

Hello,

just as Liliana said, I would like to be able to add a second address. Living between Italy and Germany, it would be good to be able to insert both locations.

Thank you and happy new year!

Carsten

Address Jan 9, 2014

Hi Jason,
Your efforts at improvement are much appreciated but I agree with Trad Siniestros as I think including such information, not just place, can be dangerous.
Regards,
Josephine Cassar

Spain address fields incorrect Jun 27, 2014

The options given for the "State / Region / Province" field are none of the three. They are called 'Autonomous Communities'. What's more, instead of appearing in English, like the country name (Spain), they appear in Spanish (e.g. Cataluña, when the local native form is Catalunya and the English form is Catalonia) and are sometimes incorrectly spelt (Andalucia instead of Andalucía, in Spanish; Andalusia, in English).

Regrading Postal Code Dec 23, 2014

I think the ZIP/Postal code should be in the same category of the street address. It is currently in the same group of the city and region.

Today I just realized that it was fully visible to all visitors, posing itself as a possible security risk, as I chose to hide my address and show only my location (i.e., city and state/region/province). In my country, the Postal Code literally gives away my street address and should not be handled in the same way as my location in a broader sense.

Thus, I think that it should have a category of its own, at the very least.

I see you have disabled the "Location" section of your profile Jan 13

Dear nimrodtran,

I see you have disabled the "Location" section of your profile by indicating that you don't want to enter your address. Before you can edit your address, you should cancel that setting. You can do so by going to https://www.proz.com/settings/freelancer/contact , clicking on the "Change" button for the "Location" section, and then clicking on "Undo". You will be able to edit your address afterwards.

Hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any question or need anything else.

Best regards,
Alejandro

UK Regions/States/Provinces Feb 8

In UK postal addresses, the use of England/Scotland/Wales/N Ireland is much less important than the name of the county, especially when the address already contains UK or United Kingdom.

Indicate Time Zone Mar 30

I think it should be possible to indicate the time zone and map location without giving the address, since that is personal information.
