SuiteCRM 8 add new field in address block

You would have always wondered if there is a possibility to add a field (Apt. No. , Suburb, etc.) to the existing SuiteCRM 8 address block. We are happy to share with you how you can achieve the same and have such additional fields in your address block.

1) Create a field in your module.
2) Add field to the address group.
3) Repair & Rebuild.

Let's take an example for the Accounts module,

Create a file and add field definition by extending vardefs.


$dictionary['Account']['fields']['billing_address_suburb'] = array(
      'name' => 'billing_address_suburb',
      'vname' => 'LBL_BILLING_ADDRESS_SUBURB',
      'type' => 'varchar',
      'len' => '100',
      'group' => 'billing_address',
      'merge_filter' => 'enabled',

Add a label for suburb field.


Add below line in the file created above.

$mod_strings['LBL_BILLING_ADDRESS_SUBURB'] = 'Suburb';

- Perform quick repair & rebuild from admin and execute the query that appears.This will create a new field in your 'accounts' table.

Update group field definition


Find the address block and add the "suburb" field name as shown below.

You will get the suburb field to the address group.
