March (2020) Release Notes

Support Team

Date Released: 2nd March 2020

The main focus of this release is to migrate all data onto our own platform DoordaHost/API and increase the refresh rates to ensure you have access to the freshest data. Once all our customers have migrated we’ll be shuttering our BigQuery instance permanently.

DoordaProperty has been in development for a while, this release replaces the previous DoordaLookup and adds Commercial Locations as a standalone but integrated module with many additional datasets.

This product joins a wide selection of address oriented datasets to our own variant of the Royal Mail PAF. This allows you to connect all information contained within the datasets to a single address via the supplied UDPRN. If you already have a licence for commercial locations you will by default be able to access all the new datasets listed under Commercial Locations. DoordaPorperty is available on host and API as per your current licence terms.

If your licence includes full access to DoordaProperty you will have access to Commercial Locations as well as the residential property datasets.

Please note that the Royal Mail PAF only lists current addresses not historical, as our data goes back decades some addresses can’t be matched as they no longer exist. We will be addressing this issue in future releases of the product with the inclusion of our own Ids.

New (Host-Snapshot)Commercial Locations – Listed datasets now available with a monthly refresh
DoordaProperty – Includes Commerical Locations as well as these listed datasets, all with a monthly refresh
