How It Works

Using the address lookup is really simple. On any address field in Influence, simply enter the postcode into the relevant field, then click the [...] button.


e.g. If you entered TR19 7AA  then clicked [...] the system will then display a Select Address box and you can just use the drop-down list to choose the relevant address.

That's it.
