Auto Populate City/State based on Zip

Custom Schema

As SFDC is an Internet-based application, would it be possible to, once a zip code is entered, auto populate the city/state code based on the zip?

    We're working towards a making available a geocoding service that may address this use case in a different way. The Goecoding service has the side bebenfit of providing normalized addresses if a high quality/accuracy match is found. We'll provide mapping and update options that will allow you to overwrite or autofill (if balnk). The service is will trigger  post save (after Create/Update) on Account, Contacts, Leads - to start. It will also work against all existing records on activate.

    In addition, with the introduction of the Google Mapping service, we are offering an autosuggest service to allow for complete and normalized addresses to be entered at point of entry. Feature is available in S1 mobile today and will make it's way to the new desktop experience with Winter'16 (#safeharbor).

    FYI - Geocoding is in Pilot starting with Summer'15 through Winter'16. Target for GA of 'basic' Geocoding is Spring'16. Mapping + update/overwrite address is targeted for Summer'16/Winter'17. (#SAFEHARBOR)
