Ward Directory PDF needs to display "Street 2" field

In our MLS database we use the "Street 2" field to store PO Box numbers.

When viewing a household in the web browser the "Street 2" field displays properly, but when generating a PDF (or exporting to CSV) it does not display.

How do I file a bug/rfe?

Thanks!

Look at these two links. I have been trying to work on this for years. I would like to see this option added to the Abbrivated Directory custom section

I had the same idea and have sent this in a few times already. ;)

I use Residential Address Street 1 for physical addresses and Mailing Address Street 1 for the PO BOX numbers. Over half of our members in the unit have a physical address where they live and a mailing PO BOX address also. MLS needs work in this area linking what fields the membership record has to the reports and directories.

In the Membership record there is the following.
Residential Address
Street 1
Street 2
Mailing Address
Street 1
Street 2

Need to add the following under custom options to Abbreviated Directory and maybe Directory of Members
Show Residential Street 2
Show Mailing Street 1
Show Mailing Street 2

Your suggestions are for MLS while dkelson's issue is with the on-line directory. The on-line directory displays the street 2 field information but does not include it in the PDF export for printing.

I thought MLS and the On-line directory were connected. MLS updates the On-line every few days?
Thanks for the correction

That is correct. But the issue here is printing the directory. While it displays on-line just as it is in MLS the print, or PDF export, is missing the Address 2 field.
