In many Core screens, it allows only 5 characters in the Zip/Country field. In Canada, users require 6 characters for their postal code. How can Core handle Canadian postal codes?
One option is to select or enter the relevant postal code mask in the Global Settings > Custom Labels screen for Address > Zip Code, say Canadian. All address fields in Core will get updated accordingly and allow you to enter the relevant code.
However, if you deal with multi-national client base (say US, Canada, UK and Australia customers) and need to enter different zip/postal codes for them in the same Core company, you can enter a generic format as a series of wildcards, say &&&&&&&&. You can mix and match formats like 'ABCD11' as well '12345-6789' using the same mask. Wildcard characters allow you to use
- numbers or letters
- dashes or spaces
