Property Address Import

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

FP2 supports importing address data from external systems (usually GIS or taxation software) to populate property address information in FP2.


This facilitates accurately logging the location of Responses, and documentation of Fire Safety Inspections.


We usually receive this data in a separate file (or files), and build a reusable tool that can be used in the future to update the existing records.


In order to import property records, we have the following requirements/guidelines.


1) We require a transfer file in the CSV, delimited file, xlsx (MS Excel) or xls (MS Excel) format.


2) All records should have a unique ID number (usually Roll #), which allows us to update the addresses correctly when the tool is re-run in the future.


3) Most (but not all) imports include property Owner information.  This information should be included on the same row as the physical address information.


4) Separate fields containing the following CRITICAL data:


Roll # (or other unique ID)


Street number. Ex. 214


Street Name (Including street type). Ex. River Rd


Street Direction. Ex. N


Suite (or Unit #). Ex. 102


Town/Township. Ex. Nelson
