On the fourth day of Christmas, my Sugar Partner gave to me,
An easier time spelling Mississippi.
Just kidding, I don’t have to spell it anymore,
The Country and State Dropdown fields make it easier than before!

Customizing Sugar to do this magic trick
Takes five minutes and maybe a little more than a click,
But read more about it just a bit below
We can’t wait to share some Sugar Holiday glow!


This fourth little Holiday reveal unwraps two useful W-Systems customizations for your Sugar instance!

The State and Country Dropdown fields come to save some of your time by converting traditional write-in address fields into dropdown fields.

How can these Sugar customizations help your teams? Glad you asked! Just like we found out, it can make your teams more relaxed, since it doesn’t require accurate spelling skills. And we all know how difficult spelling the name of some states or countries really is - just kidding! It helps them save a little time with each address update!

But let’s take a little example. Traditionally, if you were to go the Contacts module in your Sugar instance, you would have to manually enter the complete address associated with a contact.
