How can I use the Phone field in the Form Editor on 123FormBuilder?

Yes, you can. In your form builder account, go to the Form Editor of your form. Next, go to Specific Fields and add a Phone field. Then, select from the Number format dropdown list the format that suits your needs.

If you need a phone format that’s not on the list, use a Short text field instead. This will not limit users to a specific format and you can also enable the Prefix option. In the prefix input box, you can type in your country code.


Pro Tip: Use a Short Text field and set the Field validation to regular expression. This way, you can add a regex code to define your desired phone format.
