Formatting Phone Numbers
If you want to format phone numbers like the below image. You can have form input fields automatically format as phone numbers so that it’s impossible for a user to enter a syntactically invalid phone number.
The input field rejects any input, not a number, and automatically adds dashes to standardize.
To activate, select the specific phone number field in the Box Editor, and at the bottom of the screen enter the metadata key “phone_format_usa”, with the value “true”. The field must be of type Text or be the built-in Phone field.
