I noticed there's no "Phone number" setting for field validation. Consequently, I had to use a "Text" field in order to fill in the form thus allowing me to use the ubiquitous hyphens (or slashes, or parenthesis, or periods) used in phone numbers. Also, as an additional precautionary workaround to minimize user entry errors, I utilized the "Include Help Text" option as well as limited the character count to Min: 7 and Max: 12.
People routinely mistype their phone numbers and I'm hoping there's enough interest to consider a "Phone number" field validation setting?
Common phone number formats. The first two are my preferences for forced formating via a validated field:
