Mask for Canadian postal or zip codes

Problem: The predefined mask for zip or postal codes in Custom Labels has no format for Canada.

Solution: To limit the way you enter zip codes in Employee, Project, Client, and Vendor screens, a new mask must be created and selected in Custom Labels.
1. Navigate to Settings>custom labels.
2. Expand the project list.
3. Select Zip.
4. Towards the bottom of the screen in the mask’s field type: ?9?-9?9
(This enables you to enter in zip codes in the proper Canadian format)
5.    You will see a prompt that asks if you would like this to apply to all fields, click yes if you would like to have all other screens with a zip code field to use this format. 

1. Navigate to Settings menu > Custom Labels.
2. Expand the Company option on the list.
3. Select the Zip field.
4. Towards the bottom of the screen in the Mask field, type ?9?-9?9. (This enables you to enter zip codes in the proper Canadian format.)
5. You will be prompted to apply it to all fields. Click Yes if you would like to have all other screens with a Zip Code field using this format.
