    Hi there, @FosterJames!

    Thanks for reaching out to us!

    Kindly be informed that you can surely use input masking which is a JotForm built-in feature that you can easily apply to any of your form inputs, here's how:

    1. Open Form Builder, click on desired text box, click on the "gear icon", then open the "OPTIONS" tab just as shown in the screenshot below.

    2. Scroll down until you find the "Input Mask" option, make sure to change it to "ON". Now, a new empty box will pop up right next to it. 

    Example: to restrict user inputs to be on phone number format, you have to set the input mask value to a number of hash symbols "#" that equals phone number digits, therefore if phone number consists of 12 digits, then input mask value should be ############ with no spaces at all.

    For more information on input masking and restrictions, I highly recommend that you read this detailed guide. 

    If you need any further assistance, we will be more than happy to help.
