What is the best way to capture a telephone extension? Values entered after a comma “,” such as 999.999.9999,123 are dropped by AppSheet when displaying the field in Android?

@Eric Schwartz Hi Eric, what column type are you using to store the telephone numbers? We recommend using Text columns instead of Number columns to store telephone numbers.

Personally, I would have one column set to phone, and another column for an extension… That way the user can hit call, and it works…

@Eric Schwartz Actually @Grant_Stead’s suggestion is the preferred way, since the Phone column type will automatically create a call button that allows the app user to call the phone number.
