Phone Number with Dashes on Event Level

  • 1.  Phone Number with Dashes on Event Level

    Posted 09-24-2019 13:05
    Is there a way to create on an event level the phone number to be entered with dashes 123-456-7899 for US based registrants and also the opportunity for those who have international numbers to enter without dashes.

    Trying to save time on clean up for US based numbers as many registrants enter as 10 digits only.  I know we can manipulate on Admin level across all programs, but would like to have event level modifications.  Open to any ideas!  thanks!

    We have created a custom field and use it in events when we need it.  Hope that helps

    Hi Michelle,

    The best option here would be the one Stacy provided below, and to create it as a custom contact field! This way, you can create the type as "Phone Number" which will include dashes and you can use it for US Phone Numbers. For international, you can use the standard default field if you'd like, but would just need to add both fields into the registration process.

    Thank you!
