It would be reduce errors and typing mistakes if there was the addition of a feature for end users to create and edit pull down menus for various fields that are used frequently.

For example in the location fields, it would be very convenient for end users to be able to make their own pull down lists for

City:

Province\State:

Country:

and more so that you don't have to manual type in names of locations you commonly work from when traveling on assignment.

thanks for considering this feature.

    If you install the Perl module TK::MatchEntry see: http://mapivi.sourceforge.net/mapivi.shtml#install you will have an behavior like that.
    Simply add e.g. a City name and press Tab (the names are only stored when you leave the field by pressing the tabulator key). The next time when you type the first letter all possible completions will pop up.
    See attached screenshot.
