I came across a lot of posts dating back to 2016 and 2017 asking about phone number formatting.

Was this ever resolved?

Would like to have my numbers auto format to (xxx) xxx-xxxx in appsheet for new form entries

You could add an action which would change the format when you save the form.

what type of action?

(Aleksi Alkio) #4

Set a value of a column. You can trigger that action after your saving.

The is called “masking” and appsheet doesn’t have this feature.

@Grant_Stead No we don’t have it directly but you can create your own masking with an action. Of course you could do it in an additional column, but with the action you don’t need to add any columns.

Why do you have to have the ()?

I always look for wasted/useless digits like this to eliminate making my apps more streamlined and efficient.
