Add Ability to Set Canadian Postal Code as Default Zip Code in People

When adding an entry in People, the default settings are for US zip codes. Could you please add a click button for "Canadian Postal Codes" as they are in a very different format. They are all Uppercase Letter+Number+Letter SPACE Number+Letter+Number (for example, V2Y 3J4).

This is standard for every province and every Canadian address. Could you consider forcing this format to avoid confusion (for example, auto-promote all lower case letters to upper case and always put a space between the 3rd and 4th digits).

This would be profoundly helpful and time saving for Canadians as each postal code unit only contains about 8 houses and to enter each one individually is very time consuming.

It would also standardize the entries so that user-driven data was the same as staff-entered data and that all mail merges would be effective. Thanks!

Hi all. When you change your default country in ACS People>People Settings, it will change the wording from ZipCode to Postal Code. Hope this helps.
