I'd like a State/Province field that lists both US states and Canadian provinces. I can't seem to edit Emma's ready-made State field, so I'm thinking I need to create a new drop-down field and manually enter all 63 options. Is there an easier way?

Greg with Emma Support here!

If you need a Dropdown menu field for U.S. states and Canadian provinces, you're on the right track. You just manually create the field and menu choices.

We do offer a short-answer field for State/province that is ready-made. This allows it to be used for both the U.S. and Canada, along with other countries that might use states or provinces (for example, Australia). Short-answer fields also allow for both full and abbreviated names to be entered (for example, Ontario could be entered in full, or abbreviated to ON).
