In your form builder account, go to the Form Editor of your online form. There, you can customize the Address field any way you like. You have the option to specify which subfields are required. The Address field consists of six subfields. In the Edit Field panel, you can also set which subfields will appear on the form, as well as the available countries and the default country.
Here are all the customization options available for the Address field:
1. To start with, simply add the Address field on your form and customize it in the Edit Field panel, on the left. With the option Required Fields, you can set some of the subfields to be required, by checking them in the dropdown list. This way, form users will no longer need to fill in each subfield before submitting the form. This is very useful when you want to build a profile for each of your contacts, but do not require all of the address details.
2. If you want to change the format go to Options → Address format. You can choose from Universal, United States, Canada, Australia, or the United Kingdom.
3. If you want to leave out some subfields, go to Options → Visible subfields and uncheck the subfields you don’t need in the dropdown list. If you want to use all subfields at a later time, press All, and all the subfields will reappear on your form.
Take note that every time you add an Address field, it will initially appear with all of its six subfields.
4. You can select from 250 available countries and international entities. You can uncheck some of them in the Edit Field panel, depending on your needs. To uncheck them all, go to Available countries and simply click None, on top of the dropdown list. You also have the option to check All countries back.
5. You can also set the form to autodetect the country your users come from, based on their IP. Go to Default country and select Autodetect from the dropdown list. Now your form users will not lose their time finding their country when filling out the Address field.
6. If you want to use the Region/State/County option, notice that it only changes the placeholder inside the subfield. In order to use your form on a global scale, where some form users might come from region-divided nations or states, such as the United States or Mexico, you could use Translations and write down your own placeholders, for example, “Region/State”. The same goes for the Postal/Zip label.
