Below is an example how Address 1 and Address 2 can be used in combination with the MailingStreet field, on the Contact object.

Note that two process flows are required.

  • The first is to combine Address 1 and 2, into one field on the Engaging Networks Import Record, in order to populate MailingStreet on processing.
  • The second is to separate MailingStreet, into two fields on the Contact object, in order for this data to be pushed correctly to Engaging Networks.

Before creating the following formula and workflows, a Custom Label needs to be created. This will provide a workaround to insert and then find/replace new line characters for the addresses. It is based off this idea, expressed on this blog.

Create a custom label

Head to Setup and create a new 'Custom Label' named 'NewLine'.



as the default text.

Formula to Combine Address 1 and 2

Head to the field settings of the Engaging Networks Import Record.

Create a new formula input and name the field Mailing Street Combined.

Set the formula to be

CASE(Len(Trim(EN_Connector__address_2__c)), 0, EN_Connector__address_1__c, EN_Connector__address_1__c & SUBSTITUTE($Label.NewLine, "-", "") & EN_Connector__address_2__c)
