    Hello. I only do business in my local area.  Is there an option for pull down menu for States and Provinces in the Address field. It's just an empty box and I'd like to preset it to CA if possible.

    Please and thank you,

    Hi Julie,

    It's possible to have the state input changed to a dropdown containing American states like in this JotForm. To change the text box to a dropdown, right-click the address field and then click Edit Properties:

    Then select American States for the State / Province input:

    However, there's currently no way in the form builder to have any of the states selected by default. For that, you would have to get the form's full source, edit it and embed it in a webpage.

    Having said that, we have a widget called Address Map Locator which may be more suitable for your requirements. Please see this guide.

    Do keep us informed on your progress.
