Hi

I cannot seem to get the address for my church.  Here is a shot from Proclaim

We are two parishes with one vicar, and the address database displays the address of the vicarage, which is a mile away from our church. 

I am sure this is not a Procalim issue so not a bug.  How can I get the church database corrected?

David,

We rely on bing maps for our geolocation. Sometimes it doesn't seem to work so well. We're giving thought to how to improve things. In the meantime, you can work around the issue in two steps:

 

1. Find the latitude and longitude for the location you wish to use.

You can do this with, for example, this website.

Type in the address or nearby landmark to get as close as you can. Then use the map to drag and zoom into the precise location you want. When the marker is placed at the location you want, highlight the latitude/longitude coordinates above the map and copy them.

 

2. Now go to Proclaim and paste the coordinates, as-is, into the location window.

 

Your desired location should be set!
