Country List

weForms has a separate field for country name. Users can select their country using a drop-down menu. This cancels out the possibility of spelling errors. Once you have this data, you can sort forms according to geographic regions.
Suppose you organize international events. This means you have to deal with different time zones. Using this field type you can store their geographic location in your database. Later, after analyzing these different time zones, you can pick a standard time for all your email updates.
