Form question for you all. I need to capture phone number on an Airtable form however I can't figure out how to require it be entered as a 10 digit number so that area code is captured. The Phone number field type does not require the response to be 10 digits. I'm open to using the Formula field type however can't find a formula to use that would require 10 digits. Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

That is not possible with Airtable's forms, nor is it possible with any other Airtable fields. You can't restrict somebody to typing in a 10-digit number anywhere in Airtable.

In order to implement this functionality, you would need to use an external tool like JotForm, which offers tons of phone number functions.

Then, after your form is submitted in JotForm, you can use a tool like Make to send your data to Airtable. (JotForm offers some extremely basic Airtable integration, but it can't send all field types into Airtable, which is why you typically need to use the combination of JotForm + Make.)

@ScottWorld thanks for your response and confirming it isn't possible in forms or fields. Super helpful!
