Regpack gives you the ability to ask a variety of different question types in your forms, so you can gather the information you need, in the format you need it.
The countries drop-down field is great when you have to ask for addresses, especially of international applicants.
First, navigate to your forms by going to Settings –> Forms.
Next, hover over the form you’d like to add a long answer field to, and click “Edit Form Fields.”
Once in your desired form, click the “Countries Drop down” and either add it to the top or bottom, or simply drag it into place.
Once the field is in your form, you can make alterations to the country question text, whether it is mandatory or not, which country is defaulted to display, the description, and if it is an admin field or not.
The countries drop down field comes pre-filled with a list of countries, both a ‘major countries’ list option or an ‘all countries’ list option.
Either way it will save you a headache, because you do not have to create your own drop down multiple choice option and add in all the country options. Instead you can use the one we have already prepared.
You can change the field title by changing the “Label”. There are different font sizes and color choices available.
You can decide if the field should be mandatory or not by clicking “On” or “Off”.
You must pick a country list: major countries or all countries.
You are also able to add a description, which will appear as a sub-text underneath the field.
It is generally used to give the applicant more information about what you are asking, which should make for a smoother registration experience for your applicants!
You can also make the field an Admin Only field, which hides it from your applicants on the front end. It only becomes visible to your admins in the back end. Basically, it is an internal field that only your team will answer and use.
Remember to save all your choices, when you are done! Then test it to make sure it’s displaying the way you want it to.
