You cannot change the format of the phone field but you can use a Text field instead 🙂

You can also change the text field with a tel field and custom pattern, you can't change the type with squarespace but you can override it.

  1. Create a normal txt input on your form
  2. copy the id of the input field (through right click -> inspect)
  3. open the settings of the page then advanced
  4. paste the follow code and replace YOUR-ID with the ID you copied
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.6.1.min.js" integrity="sha256-o88AwQnZB+VDvE9tvIXrMQaPlFFSUTR+nldQm1LuPXQ=" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>
<script>
  $( document ).ready(function() {
    $('#YOUR-ID').attr("type", "tel");
	$('#YOUR-ID').attr("pattern", "[0-9]{11}");
	});
</script>

You can change the pattern to match what you prefer

Hi Squarespace community,

Does anyone know how to change the format of the Phone form field?

The forms seems fixed to the attached format of: (###) ### ###
Though here in Australia, mobile numbers are written as: #### ### ###
or with country code included: (##) ### ### ### 

Can I change the field formats to suit Australia's standard?

Thanks for your help 🙂
