Settings reference

Name of your company.

Maximum number of suggested addresses to show, configurable from 1-25.

Default country to be used at the org level for address and phone validation.

Separator to be used when more than one output address line is mapped to an address field.

Available when "Use Custom Separator" is selected in the field above.

Controls what line endings are used for multi-line fields, allowing explicit configuration of CRLF (Windows) or LF (MacOS and Linux).

Determines whether country codes include the plus sign (+) when saved with the phone number.

If our EDQ components are used to validate a phone number or if the existing number in your database was entered manually with a plus sign (+), our component will display the plus sign (+) when your object is in view mode.

If you want to always retain the plus sign (+) when saving phone numbers, you must enable this config setting.

Determines whether the formatted phone number should be used rather than the default sanitized number.

Controls the format of the phone number if using the formatted phone number option. Possible values are E164, PLUS_E164, NATIONAL or any 3-letter ISO country code. If not specified, the default format, NATIONAL, will be used.

Determines whether supplementary live status is enabled for Phone Validation requests (which costs an additional 1 credit per successful request).

Number of characters entered before an Address Validation API call is made.

The maximum number of entries in the EDQ Error Logs object to be retained.

The log level for logs written to the browser console.

Controls where the country picklist appears in the EDQ address component, with options to appear above or below the other address fields.

Determines whether EDQ validation statuses will be displayed against address/email/phone fields even when EDQ validation has been disabled for the current profile.

If enabled, the country dropdown for addresses will ignore any default country settings and instead contain a "--Select a country--" option to mirror the behavior of Salesforce's State and Country/Territory Picklists functionality. If the user changes the country from "--Select a country--" to a particular country, but doesn't enter any other address details our component will save the address with just a country and an EDQ Log indicating the address has been manually updated.

When this setting is enabled an additional "Set default country" button appears to the right of the "Clear" button. This allows users to quickly clear the address and set the country to the default according to the documented logic.
