Make the phone number field type check for a phone number

Currently the phone number data type field works exactly like a short text field. If you are going to have a phone number data type field, you should at least check that it has at least 7 digits and no alpha.

    Hello folks,

    I'm coming with a little update for you :)

    At the moment, we allow only numbers and a couple of valid symbols. We don't validate the length as there are different phone formats which we have to bear in mind.

    However, we're planning to implement a more complex validation in the future.

    Hi Kallen,

    Thanks for adding your idea!

    It does sound reasonable and I agree that it's quite important to check for phone numbers. We'll be happy to consider this option for future updates.

    Thanks a lot for helping us :)
