Change the 'Country' in Leads Module to DropDown

Dear Friends,

The default ‘Country’ is a TextField. But it causes mismatches of manual data entry. I wish to replace it with a dropdown which will contain the list of countries, so that the data consistency could be maintained.

I don’t want to delete the existing field, as it already contains the data in corresponding column of Leads table.

Is it possible to change the TYPE of this field to Dropdown by making some coding changes in SuiteCRM and MySQL (if required).

With thanks,


Please read SuiteCRM Open Source Blog :

Why isn’t Address Country a dropdown by default? · Issue #1099 · salesagility/SuiteCRM - https://github.com/salesagility/SuiteCRM/issues/1099

It seem that the link you posted doesn’t work anymore?

Kind regards
