We've had registrants point out that they cannot select "other" in the State field when they choose a country other than United States. How can this be resolved?
We currently have "State/Province" as a required item on the registration form. We have many registrants from Europe and other regions that do not have states and we've heard from many of them who are not happy that there is not a "none" or "not applicable" choice in the drop down menu, only US and Canadian states and Provinces. This is also an issue that throws off our reporting and follow up because anyone registering from another country has to choose something that doesn't actually reflect where they are. We often have meetups to follow up on a subject and we send invittes to people who are within 50 miles of where a particular meetup is taking place so it's important to us to have accurate information.
PLEASE take this request (and apparently many others you've received on this subject) under consideration! PLEASE add a "none" or "not applicable" option in the State/Province drop down!
We appreciate you taking the time to make the suggestion and can understand the inconveniece the current setup is creating. As you indicated, this is something that we have heard requested previously and we will be happy to pass it to developers again to evaluate as something to be implemented in the future.
For now, the best suggestion to work around this would be to still include the State/Province field on your registration forms, but not force it to be a required field. With this, at least international attendees will not be forced to make a selection which results in inaccurate information on your side.
