Change the country field to a dropdown list by default

    Hi,

     

    everytime we see a SugarCRM system again some time after the Rollout, we are nearly everytime confronted with the problem that the country field is free text. This causes huge problems because people are free to enter whatever they want, so they use their own language which makes reports going over countries nearly impossible.

     

    Yes, this can be changed by customization, but I think it would be a good preset to make this a dropdown list with all available countries (complete lists should be available, here: PHP array of all country names · GitHub  for starters).

     

    Greetings,

    Mark
