Update travel distance

I changed my address from Iowa to Texas.  My Texas assignments do not reflect my updated address, but my Iowa address!  Please calculate distances based on the current address in profile!

    I am not in favor of this change. Many officials have different origin zip codes on different days based on a work or other schedule. I would be strongly in favor of leaving the ability to have different ZIP Codes on different days. Also, changing mileage after an assignment has been published causes issues when officials are paid for mileage. It not only allows officials to inflate their mileage fees, it also permits conferences that have specific conference polices restricting distance to issue assignments to someone that is, after the fact, outside of that policy restriction.

    As a admin i know this based off another feature known as travel limits were you select the zipcode of your home and how many miles you travel from there. i think this should be simplified on the profiles zip and just put how many miles on that profile as another box
