tableau: plotting address locations on map

Hi Experts,
I am new to Tableau, using 8.3. I have a database field call hub address that shows the full address location U.S only. i am trying to use this field to plot on a map. I have other specific fields, like zip code, state, etc. So far i can only get it to shade the zip code area. However, I only want to have a marker on the address location.  Is there a way to do this?

I've not used Tableau, but the online help suggests that you need to import geocoding data to get below zip code resolution ->http://onlinehelp.tableausoftware.com/current/pro/online/windows/en-us/custom_geocoding.html

If you don't already have latitude/longditude data for your addresses, this link suggests uploading your address data as a csv file to BatchGeo to get it back with lat/lon columns added to it.
