Make the Contact Type field optional on the Contacts > Create endpoint

Originally submitted 7/12/17

When using the Contacts Create endpoint, the "contact type" field is currently required. This field is a legacy field and no longer relevant to users who are using Paths. While it is possible to "map" the "contact type" fields to a path, not every nation has this feature enabled. If a nation doesn't have it enabled, this field is completely functionless so requiring it doesn't make sense. I propose that the "contact type" field is made optional instead of required.


10/13 - This is complete!

We have begun working on this.
