Hi all

The app. I'm currently working on has 2 lots of address fields for users to
complete - 1 for the user's physical location and 1 for their postal
address. The physical location field is currently labelled "Work address"
and the other is "Postal address (if different)".

The problem is that although most of our users are in a corporate
environment, we'll also have some home users. Home users may or may not
have jobs, and may or may not want stuff sent to them at work. "Work or
home address" isn't an option, as we don't want corporate users entering
their home address.

So my question is: What label should we use for the "Work address" field?
What do you think about "Physical location"? Better suggestions gratefully

Before you tell me to do some usability testing, let me say that this issue
arose from usability testing. We're trying to decide what to test in the
next lot of tests!

Thanks for any help you can offer on this one.
