The top half of the screen is for the customer's address information. You have the option to enter in a home address, business, or lodging (hotel). If you have phone defaults setup in configuration-order types the area code, city, state, and zip will default to the chosen area code.
As you type in the address field, Google auto-complete is used to suggest matching addresses. Select an address from the suggested list to populate the city, zip and zone, if defined. The zone field is used to determine what to charge for deliveries. The section field is optional and is normally only used for call centers. The address type field (defaults to main) is used to describe the address such as a customer's home or businses address.
Below is the Message field, which can be used in add directions or instructions. This can be printed on the ticket.
If the customer is at a business you can change the type to Biz. New fields will pop up where you can add the company name and suite number.
If the customer is staying in a hotel you can change the type to "Lodge" and the address portion of the profile will change to reflect the hotel's information, guest name, guest phone, and room#.
