    By setting the field to required, the form user will be force to provide answer.


    And by judging your question, I think you must be also needing to force them to use 'cellphone format" number not the telephone format number

    You can do that by doing this.

    1. Set the Input Mask to ON

    2. Provide the Mask Value for cellphone number format you want. i.e. (####) (######) to have (0917) (1234567)
