    Drop-down field Predefined Options - Countries: How to make the list of countries in alphabetical order?

    Asked by legalmartin on October 30, 2016 at 06:06 AM



    Can I remove the "United States of America" as first choice in the default countries list and put it in the general alphabetical order list?

    If you use "Countries" as Special/Predefined Option of your "Country" drop-down field, then I'm afraid it would not be possible.

    However, as a workaround, I suggest you select "None" from the Special/Predefined Option of your "Country" drop-down field and copy the list of countries (in alphabetical order) from this link to its options.

    Note: Once you are on the page with the list of countries, press CTRL+A on your keyboard to easily select all the countries, then CTRL+C to copy, and CTRL+V to paste it in the options of your Country drop-down field.

    I hope this helps. If you need any further assistance, please feel free to contact us anytime.


    Thank you.
