Student Maintenance: Addresses


This is the third of seven accordion bars in Student Demographics. Addresses are displayed differently than Core Trillium, including the ability to Display Past Addresses (upper right). The display-only main screen shows you the Address Summary. To see complete Details (and edit them if you have rights), Click Edit, which brings you to the Edit Addresses form. Before we explain that, we should note that if you use Street Perfect, we have additional information on that.

  • You must assign a Priority to each address. It is not necessary to start at 1, but the lower the number, the greater the Priority. Priority is set within the various Types; you can have No. 1 Home address, and a No. 1 Mailing address. You cannot have two No. 1 Home Addresses. The primary purpose is to establish the order in which users should access the addresses.
  • We still use Preferences set in Core Trillium to populate City, Province, and Country. Most users will only have to choose a City from the picklist and manually enter Students' postal codes.picklist and manually enter Students' postal codes.
  • If the Student you're editing needs a Street not already stored on your data, Click New Street, which you will only see if you have proper Security.
  • If you Click Add to input a new or second address for a Student, you may see new icons far to the right of the Address Summary in the top of this form. Hover over them to learn more.
    • A red triangle brings warning messages which would keep you from saving an Address
    • A black triangle brings information-only messages.
  • Although our software allows you to Delete addresses, many Boards prefer their users set an End Date when you know your Student will be moving. 

Note: This is also important for OnSIS reporting; every student must have a valid home address.

  • When you Save a Student's Address change, you'll receive a pop-up window asking whether you wish to save the same change for Siblings/Contacts. If you do, Select them and  Click  Ok.
  • Select an Address and Click Copy  if you wish to Copy an address to a Student's Contact(s)

New, Old Addresses

  • If you're end-dating an old address and adding a new one at the same time, we display the Same Address pop-up window so you can update cohabiting contacts and siblings. Add your new address in the top portion of the pop-up. End-date the old one in the bottom portion. You have to make a selection in both parts of the pop-up to Save Changes.

Select the format of the student addresses, different fields may be displayed to accommodate the selected format.

Address Type

Use this field to order the student's addresses of the same type. Our system uses this field to be able to identify which address to select when the student has more than one active address of the same type. The system will select the one with the highest priority. For example: If the student has two active home addresses with priorities 3 and 4, respectively.  On a report or when extracting a student home address, the system will pick the address with the highest priority (3).
