    I am using the MailCHimp integration and it allows me to choose name, email and another field, but will not allow me to choose a widget (Country Picker) or the comments field. Ideas?

    Hi,

    Have you tried already creating the custom field in your Mailchimp list?

    To be able to mapped the form's fields to MC field, the custom field should be existing first in Mailchimp end.

    Please try this option and re-integrate again the form to Mailchimp.

    Inform us if this does not make any difference.

    Thanks.

    I figured out the custom fields in MailChimp earlier and that worked for all except the Country Picker widget one I used. I can't get that one to work. So I dropped the widget and just used an input field for country.

    I hope that worked.

    Thanks for the advice. I thought about the drop-down field, but then I have to populate that with all the countries of the world. Daunting task. So I have opted to just allow them to type in their country in the meantime, but would love it if I could use the Country Picker and make that integrate with MailChimp.

    Oh, my.

    Sorry I did not clarify that.

    Under the special options in the property, selecting country populates the list of countries automatically:
