Eventsforce has created two new system standard questions allowing event managers to collect the ‘US State’ from attendees from the United States. Both questions use the “dropdown box” question type listing all US states and territories. The two new database items are:
Invoice Details US State
These questions will not exist in events as a default question, but can be added at any point if needed. We suggest asking for this information if you are anticipating any registrations from the United States.
The “Invoice Details US State” question is specifically for instances where you are collecting invoice details that may be different from the mailing address.
Adding the US State question
The “US State” question is automatically added to all Eventsforce accounts. You can add this question to any event by taking the following steps:
Go to Website > Content > Registration Pages
Click to “Edit” the page you want this question to appear on
Hover over ‘Add here’ and select “Registration Question”
Search for “US State”
Select one of the matching questions
Note: To shorten your registration page, make the “US State” question dependent on “Country” being equal to “United States”. This ensures only those who select “United States” will be asked the “US State” question.
