Why can’t I add a Locality?

Localities are configured in your database to make entering addresses easier.

A Locality record allows you to link a suburb to the correct postcode and state.

When your database is initially configured you will have the approved Australia Post list of localities.

Depending on database permissions, you may also be able to edit localities as required.
Access to adding or editing Localities is managed in your user permissions.
If you do not have access, speak to your database manager or contact support.

Depending on your database configuration, you may also see other information saved to your locality record, including council area, region or other notes.
If you are able to add or edit a record, but it will not save, you may not have entered fields that are mandatory for your database.

Tip: Mandatory fields are marked with a red asterisk 
and will report an error when you try to save the record.
