Location field for Events should have each piece of address on its own line

Please add two more field lines for event location!

Now, if we have a building, street, and city/state/zip--it is all in a run-on sentence!

Location should have each piece of information on its own line so attendees can easily and clearly read the location.

field line for building name
filed line for street
field line for cross street, or additional street info
field line for city/state/zip

or else, give me ability to force a hard return in the location field so location lines can be separate.

thank you!

    We would really like this feature! A lot of events are held at local parks or in members' homes and trying to keep the location easy to read is difficult when it all runs together.

    Also, having the locations we enter be saved so that we can choose from a prefilled list or create a new location would be ideal since we also repeat locations.

    Create a method to create Location records and then let the location field in the events select from the predefined events.

    We have fixed locations with events every week. We would like the location fields to be consistent. Right now the user can type in what ever and we have the same location stated multiple ways and makes it difficult to sort report and exports by location.

    You could still leave an option to enter a manual location ?

    Yes a location table would be great. We have multiple events at the same venue. Address info and such could be saved in the venue record. Pick venue when creating event

    As a (hopefully) friendly amendment, I suggest allowing event administrators to have a list of editable venues, each venue having this information, that could be attached to events. This would allow some validation control over event locations as well as simplifying data entry.
