My org uses "State and Country Picklists" and I've been asked if it's possible add additional fields to the object so we can align each country to a region, sub-region and cluster and the ISO 3 digit country code.

For example: Madagascar = Country Code: 450, Region: CEMEA, Sub-Region: SSA, Cluster: East Africa... To do this, I would need to add 4 new fields to the "State and Country Picklists" so that I could assign each country the proper regional values. Is it possible to add custom fields to the "State and Country Picklists"?

  • I'm not 100% sure, hence the comment but the state and county picklist is not an object where you could add more fields to. So I think this is a no. It's just a global picklist. Jan 16, 2020 at 16:42

No, you cannot add more fields to the standard picklist.

You can add new complete country/state options, but you're limited to whatever fields they provide as options.

There's many ideas about exploring enhancements in this regard that you can look to upvote although I think it's important to highlight they don't seem to have this on their roadmap based on the info below:

  1. Accepting ISO 3 code values and compliant text updates might match what you're looking, but has no updates and is 6 years old.
  2. State & Country Picklists as a custom field type for other custom object. No update for 2 years and is 6 years old.
  3. Similar to #1 above, except with more focus on configuring accepted text values. 6 years old.
  4. Ability to customize the sort order is 5 years old and no update.
  5. Currently, you're not even able to use deployments for new countries or states. 5 years old, no update.
