Changes to Resume Address field
21 February 2013, 9:31 PM
Currently Address field in Resume is just a textbox.
Europass on the other hand has an Address field which is actually a composite field. It would be beneficial to try and implement this in Mahara as it would allow better import/export of Europass (and maybe other easier interoperability with other systems). It would be beneficial for users also as this would suggest them how to enter address data - in a way this would guide them.
The Address (composite) field in Europass consists of the folowing fields:
- s: Street name and number
- p: Country postal code prefix
- z: Postal code
- m: Municipality
- c: Country
Which is the best way to get this implemented?
What are your thoughts, suggestions?
Is this wort implementing at all?

I am with you on this. I also think that it is a good idea to split the information in more bits. I see other reason to this such as an alumni, using Mahara, who want to find graduate in a spectif geographical aera (e.g. city or country).
And of course it will give more flexibility to import/export data from/to other systems (Moodle for example).
