Let’s be honest how frustrating the old phone format was on Workiom? It used to do the trick by validating entry, but it was not formatting it, distinguishing the country code or any of these beautiful tricks we have grown used to and now take for granted.
Before, when typing in your phone number in an input form, it will end up looking like a zero-spaced 11 digit number. This was a nightmare when you needed to double check the number, especially if you’ve just read that number from your phone which is beautifully formatted, for example, 0800 1234 567.
When properly formatted, an input form should display the numbers like the above example whilst you type it in, spacing it automatically for you, add the country automatically, or even better enables you to call directly if you click it.
Look how nice and tidy it now looks on Workiom.
