Address Tools Menu
This menu contains the following tools:
AUTO LOCATE ADDRESSES
This function attempts to locate X and Y Coordinates for all addresses without X and Y Coordinates. Depending on the volume of data this represents, this function could take a very long time to execute.
Auto Locate Address
DELETE DUPLICATE ADDRESSES
This function will delete an address from BusBoss™ only if every part of the address (house number, prefix, street name, street type, suffix, address2, city, state, zip code) is duplicated exactly.
If students are assigned to both addresses, then all students will be assigned to one address and the other will be deleted.
Delete Duplicate Addresses
This utility will delete "EXTRA" addresses for all students. Only addresses that are marked as Home Address and/or Mailing Address and are used for routing for each student will remain after this utility is run.
Delete Extra Addresses
SET ADDRESS NODE IDs
This tool will assign node ID's to all addresses that are located on the map. This data is used for automatically assigning students to stops and assigning students as walkers.
Click Set Address Node ID's from the menu and the following screen pops up. This function can take a long time to run depending on the number of addresses and the speed of your computer. To continue, click either All Addresses or All Addresses w/o Node Id's. To exit with no changes, click Cancel.
Set Address Node IDs Message
This tool can be used to sort addresses by name if they are not in alphabetical order in the Addresses screen.
