US ZIP Codes
Hello all,

Would anyone have a csv of the US Postal zip codes by any chance that they're willing to 'give' to me😃

Or....a link to where I can download them - freeeeeee.

In Australia, our postal service allows us to download the list...I couldn't find them on the site.

Another way, which would be better, is to have the google address js in a field and have that submit to the TD record on SAVE....but I don't know how to do that 😉

Hi Brett

I have a list of US Zip Codes/States/Cities which you can have if that would be useful? I configured to pre populate the State/City when the Zip was entered. It does mean the user has to enter Address Line 1and Address Line 2.

I have used MapQuest (with some help from Kirill) to calculate distances between UK Postcodes and whilst your requirement is somewhat different this might be an option for you to consider? I think the service is free (unlike Google, boo hiss).

Anyhow let me know if you would like the list.

That'd be awesome thank you Scott. I really appreciate it.

I do a calculation with a Formula URL that opens in either Apple Maps or Google Maps that sets the suggested route (directions) - based on Store Location and Customer Address....I don't feed the distance back to TD but could do I guess

Thanks to transfer it. Maybe just to my email:

You're a legend!

No problem, it's on its way

I had a similar need. The client wanted time and distance to work locations. They were using a link to open google maps, then manually entered the info. That was not working so well.. When I found out they were doing this. and remembering the new CALL feature in teamdesk...

I used google API to calculate distant, drive time, and show a map with route from the clients office. The process is 100% automated now.

I plan to write a how-to and a sample database for this in the near future. But if you really need it now I can pass it on.

Yes Google API does cost eventually, but the free access limit is so high the client will never hit it.
--"Free up to 2,500 requests per day, $0.50 USD / 1,000 additional requests, up to 100,000 daily "--

I considered Google Maps API but I believe the free access you mention was only for external facing websites that are free to the public. That's why I went with MapQuest. I'm sure the Google Maps API is better but at the time it incurred a cost (Premium Plan). Looking at Google I believe it still does?

This is where I looked

You are likely correct. I had not noticed the public accessible part.

I wonder what the actual cost is.
In my short search, I found pricing from 10K (insane) to announcements that there is a small business package. But I cannot find any pricing on the small business.

I am betting I can build the same thing with Mapquest.

Scott, I would really appreciate it if you could send me your list of US ZIP codes by city & state for a project I'm working on. It would be wonderful! You can send it to
