    Hey,

    I'm working on a form. Our clients are trying to input their date of birth and phone number and the form will only accept one precise type of formatting. Is it possible to have someone input, as a date for instance, 'Jun 5, 1955' or 06 05 1955' and both of them being accepted?

    Same goes for phone numbers. Is there some tolerance level we can set for that?

    Thanks.

    - Ben

    It seems like you decided to use a Short Text Entry field to capture the date. Unfortunately, our Date field only allows capturing the date in one of the 3 format options it provides:
