    Hi guys

    1) If I'm creating a form for Canada, how do I change the Zip Code entry box to a Postal Code Entry box?

    2) If I'm advertising in a specific province can it auto-populate that province) eg: British Columbia

    Thanks, Look forward to learning more

    Cal :)

    Greetings Cal,

    1) If I'm creating a form for Canada, how do I change the Zip Code entry box to a Postal Code Entry box?

    I believe you are referring to the Zip/Postal code field in the Address field. There are no restrictions so it can be used for both.

    2) If I'm advertising in a specific province can it auto-populate that province) eg: British Columbia

    You can try using our AutoComplete Address widget. It will automatically complete the user address as soon as they start typing.

    However, you'll require the Google Maps API key to use this widget. Kindly check the guides below for instructions.
