All EngagementHQ sites on our US server have a new signup form question available now. It is called 'ZIP Code', contains all ZIP codes of the United States and allows you to ask your participants where they are from or where they currently reside.
Setting this question up works in the same way as any other question. Simply select it from the list of available questions. Once you have done that, you can change the wording on the question, choose to include a "Not in USA" option and make this question mandatory.
The participant will be able to search for their ZIP code by either typing in their numbers, or search for their suburb directly. As in the below example, either searching for 90210 or Beverly Hills will come up with the same results.
Some questions you may have
I already have people registered, can I still use it?
Yes, you can add additional question to your signup form at any point in time, however, we recommend you be careful when doing this. We have some best practice tips here.
Can I filter and create groups based on ZIP Codes?
Not yet, while we are planning on including this functionality, in the first stage of this development the ZIP Code will not allow you to create groups in our Participant Management screen.
What if I find a ZIP code that is incorrect or not included?
While we are confident we have included all ZIP codes, if you find one that is missing or incorrect, please email us to rectify.
