All the Onboarding customer planning to enable US Compliance feature, has to perform below mandatory task of Importing Picklist to instance.

As the forms require the full legal name of a person that can include a suffix, the suffix picklist must be maintained in the Picklist center and field has to be enabled as a Picklist in the personalInfo (Manage Business Configuration > personalInfo). This field is not mandatory and can be left blank by the users.

Below are the required Picklists in United States Compliance feature/Flow.

  • Country Picklist
  • State Picklist
  • US County Picklist
  • School District Picklist
  • Municipality  Picklist

So download the Zip Files present in this KBA and use the Import & Export Functionality in system to Import the file (Zip Files). Follow below steps to Import the Zip Files.

  • Admin Center->Import and Export Data-> Import Data-> Zip File-> Choose the file (Import' file first) -? Import

Important Note: We should first import '' file and once it is completed, then only they should import 2nd zip file (County_SchoolDistrict_PicklistData). Because it has a dependency on 'State' picklist.

For the Pennsylvania Residency Certification form to work properly, you need to import 2 new picklists after County_SchoolDistrict_PicklistData is imported.
The order should be as follows:
First comes school district (Attached PA_SchoolDistrict_PicklistData) 
and followed by Municipality (Attached PA_Municipality_PicklistData)
